Having seen your defence taken apart by a half-fit Marlon Harewood and Gary Taylor-Fletcher, the last thing you want is to face a team who have won their last four league games by a collective score of 23-0. That is the scenario facing the Wigan manager, Roberto Martínez, which may be why a truce with the wantaway Charles N'Zogbia, who was dropped for the rout by Blackpool, has been arranged. Carlo Ancelotti has added Ramires, his new signing from Benfica, to his squad but will remember he lost 3-1 on Chelsea's last visit to the DW Stadium. Tim Rich
