Kickoff at 19:45 UK/02:45 EST

Genk travel to Chelsea with a depleted squad. Nadson, Torben Joneleit, Jeroen Simaeys and captain David Hubert will all be unvailable for the Belgian champions at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea manager André Villas-Boas has hinted towards resting several key players:

The most important thing for us is that we are aware of the amount of talent that we have at our disposal. Any XI that we put across is a very, very strong XI. This puts us in a position of comfort to have always a good rest.
