Andre Villas-Boas is likely to pick as strong a side as possible for the trip to Elland Road on Sunday but he may take the opportunity to give a couple of fringe players a start.
There’s no news of fresh injuries so it seems the only absentees are injury victims Sandro and Younes Kaboul while Emmanuel Adebayor is still away with Togo at Afcon.
At the back, will Brad Friedel come in for Hugo Lloris once again and will BAE start at left back as he did against Coventry? Jan Vertonghen is expected to return to the squad after illness but will Steven Caulker keep his place for Jan to return afresh ahead of some important league matches?
In midfield, Scott Parker deputised for Sandro in the Coventry game so will Scott be rested now in preference for Jake Livermore? Alternatively, will Moussa Dembele sit this one out with Gylfi Sigurdsson, Tom Huddlestone or Tom Carroll coming in?
The front two will probably pick themselves but there are plenty of questions in other areas of the pitch. Here’s our starting XI but what’s your view?
