Villa make two changes from the team that went down to Arsenal.
Nathan Baker and Ashley Westwood both return from the virus which led them to sit out the Gunners clash.
Andreas Weimann, meanwhile, feels 100% again after having to be subbed at half-time against Arsene Wenger's men.
Darren Bent, also on his sickbed the previous weekend, returns to the 18-man squad while Carlos Sanchez and Ciaran Clark drop to the bench.
CHELSEA: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Azpilicueta, Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard, Diego Costa. Cech, Zouma, Filipe Luis, Mikel, Schurrle, Remy, Drogba.
VILLA: Guzan, Hutton, Cissokho, Baker, Senderos, Westwood, Delph, Richardson, Cleverley, Weimann, Agbonlahor (c). Subs: Given, Clark, Bacuna, Sanchez, N'Zogbia, Grealish, Bent.
