Marc Tierney (groin) continues to be absent through injury for the home side. Kyle Naughton showed some difficulty adapting to an unfamiliar left back role when filling in away at West Brom last weekend but, with Chelsea likely not to field an out-and-out right winger, he may get another chance in the position.
Wes Hoolahan may be the major tactical casualty for the Canaries, with Paul Lambert usually preferring to field both Bradley Johnson and David Fox in the center at home and Andrew Surman in good form on the left recently. Also doing well are strikers Steve Morison and Simeon Jackson, who should continue to keep captain Grant Holt on the bench.
Chelsea's 7 million pound signing from Bolton, Gary Cahill, is in line for his club debut at the center of defense, while Jose Bosingwa is likely to continue at right back while Brainslav Ivanovic (hamstring) remains out indefinitely.
John Obi Mikel (hamstring) is also unavailable for Andre Villas-Boas and, while Michael Essien made a 20-minute cameo off the bench against Sunderland last weekend in his return after several months on the sidelines, the Ghanaian is unlikely to be rushed into the starting lineup just yet.
