Image for Chelsea to rest key players

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has stated that he will rest many of his stars on Saturday against Town. Missing faces are likely to include Frank Lampard, Claude Makelele, John Terry, Peter Cech.

So, should be easy then!

Except for the fact that this now leaves the door open for the likes of Eidur Gudjohnsen, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Glen Johnson, Robert Huth and Carlo Cudicini.

The fact is, Chelsea could probably come close to winning the Premiership with a team of reserves, such is their strength in depth.

Town will be without suspended skipper, Jon Worthington but Chris Brandon should return after completing his suspension against Gillingham on Monday.
