- Damien Delaney will continue to miss out along with Adrian Mariappa, so Scott Dann and Brede Hangeland should continue at centre-back.
- With 3 games in the space of a week Neil Warnock may want to freshen things up so the likes of Wilfried Zaha and James McArthur could come into contention.
- Fraizer Campbell should lead the line after Dwight Gayle was forced off early on at the weekend against Swansea.
- Ron Vlaar, Philippe Senderos and Nathan Baker will likely remain sidelined so Jores Okore and Ciaran Clark should continue at the back, though the latter was forced off against Burnley after sustaining a late head injury.
- Carlos Sánchez has looked like he's struggled with the pace of English football at times and may be one of those in need of a rest.
- Having scored on his first start for the club last time out Joe Cole will certainly hope to keep his place in the starting XI.
- Christian Benteke is back available following a suspension and will likely return to the front line at the expense of Weimann or Agbonlahor.
