Premier League team news: Fulham v Chelsea

Fulham's Damien Duff will miss Wednesday's clash with former club Chelsea through injury.

The 34-year-old was forced off 10 minutes into Saturday's 1-1 draw with Aston Villa with an adductor strain, which will also likely see him miss this weekend's match against Arsenal.

Former Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell is suspended, while Ashkan Dejagah (ankle) and Mahamadou Diarra (knee) are sidelined for the remainder of the season.

Captain John Terry and midfielder Frank Lampard are expected to return when Chelsea bid to consolidate their top-four place in the Barclays Premier League at Fulham tomorrow.

The experienced pair were unused in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final loss to Manchester City at Wembley, but interim boss Rafael Benitez is poised to rotate his squad once more as Chelsea's congested schedule continues with the west London derby.

Striker Fernando Torres could also start in a week which will end with Chelsea going to his former club Liverpool, but Ashley Cole (hamstring), his fellow England defender Gary Cahill (knee) and long-term absentee Oriol Romeu (knee) remain out, while Marko Marin (hip) is doubtful.

Provisional squads

Fulham: Schwarzer, Etheridge, Riether, Manolev, Hangeland, Hughes, Senderos, Riise, Richardson, Baird, Karagounis, Frimpong, Davies, Frei, Enoh, Ruiz, Emanuelson, Berbatov, Ruiz, Rodallega, Petric.

Chelsea: Cech, Turnbull, Hilario, Ivanovic, Ferreira, Bertrand, Luiz, Terry, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Oscar, Mata, Benayoun, Mikel, Moses, Lampard, Hazard, Marin, Torres, Ake, Ba.
