The big question is will Anton Ferdinand shake hands with John Terry, we all remember when Wayne Bridge failed to do so with JT but that was a different situation.
Terry is expected to start and after AVB said Ferdinand shoud shake JT’s hand you have to think he will be in the starting 11, but Frank Lampard is injured, having torn his calf against Norwich.
QPR have various injury problem, with Akos Buzsaky, Danny Gabbidon, Matthew Connolly, Jay Bothroyd and DJ Campbell all likely to miss out.
• The Blues will be looking to avoid another defeat against their neighbours when Rangers won 1-0 in the Premier League in October. It was a bad day at the office for AVB – Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba both got sent off in the first half.
• Today will be the 50th competitive West London derby – Cheslea have come out on top 18 times, Queens Park Rangers 14 and there have been 17 draws.
• As for FA Cup meetings, the Blues are 3-1 up, including a quarter-finals win in 1970 when the Blues went on to win the cup in 1970.
