Goalkeeper blow: Cech was stretchered off during the Champions League defeat to Inter

Hilario will deputise for Petr Cech in Chelsea's goal against Man City, after the Czech Republic goalkeeper tore a calf muscle against Inter Milan in midweek.

Ashley Cole is a long-term absentee with a broken ankle and Yury Zhirkov has a calf injury.

Paulo Ferreira is back in contention after not being registered for the Champions League in midweek but Florent Malouda is expected to continue at left-back.

Jose Bosingwa, Michael Essien and Deco (all knee) all remain sidelined.

Team (from): Hilario, Ivanovic, Carvalho, Terry, Lampard, Mikel, Ballack, Malouda, Drogba, Kalou, Anelka, J Cole, Sturridge, Alex, Belletti, Ferreira, Bruma, Borini, Turnbull.
