Fulham's Mexican defender Carlos Salcido is sidelined for three weeks with ankle ligament damage suffered in the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa at the weekend so misses out.

Fulham will also be missing defender Chris Baird who has suffered a thigh tear and is likely to be out for 10 days.

Chelsea have fresh injury doubts over defender Alex (knee) and Nicolas Anelka (back) in the run-up to Wednesday night's west London derby against Fulham at Stamford Bridge.

Midfielder Frank Lampard remains sidelined with a tendon problem but Michael Essien has recovered from the toe injury that kept him out of the Liverpool game on Sunday.

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba will play despite being diagnosed with a bout of malaria.
