Chelsea are likely to be without captain John Terry due to a neck injury.
David Luiz is expected to be fit after sitting out the 4-2 victory over Reading in midweek.
Marko Marin remains unavailable because of a hamstring injury.
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew will make late checks on skipper Fabricio Coloccini and striker Demba Ba.
The pair were among nine men who missed or were rested for the 1-1 Europa League play-off draw at Atromitos last night, the Argentinian with a thigh problem and the Senegal international with a sore shin.
Pardew is hoping both will be fit after training in London on Friday evening, although Cheick Tiote (calf) and Shola Ameobi (hamstring) remain doubts.
