Chelsea are missing Victor Moses and Mikel who are both away at the African Cup of Nations and Oriol Romeu is out injured. We are waiting to hear news on John Terry and if he is fit enough to start this one or if Rafa Benitez decides that it's too soon for him to make a start in this one.
At home Chelsea's form has been woeful. Away from Stamford Bridge it's the opposite and it's worrying times for Blues fans. With two home defeats and a draw in our last three games at Stamford Bridge under Benitez, Chelsea are struggling. You never expect a Chelsea side 2-0 up at home to throw it away against Southampton but that is exactly what happened. Chelsea need to sort out their home form and quickly otherwise they can kiss their hopes of a top four finish goodbye.
