Chelsea will try to push towards a top-four spot in what could be a heated West London derby against Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.

Chelsea resume their fight to break into the top four of the Premier League following their progression into the Champions League final over Barcelona on Tuesday night.

The Blues go head to head with Queens Park Rangers at Stamford Bridge but due to the impending trial regarding Chelsea captain John Terry over racism allegations involving Anton Ferdinand, the league have scrapped the pre-match handshake.

Roberto Di Matteo is expected to make changes to his side with Frank Lampard likely to be sidelined along with Didier Drogba.

Gary Cahill will miss the clash after hobbling off with a hamstring problem at the Nou Camp in mid-week, but Fernando Torres should make the starting lineup along with Daniel Sturridge.

Meanwhile, Mark Hughes could recall Shaun Wright-Phillips to the side with Bobby Zamora leading the line, while Djibril Cisse misses out with a spot on the bench.

QPR skipper Joey Barton should hold the midfield alongside Shaun Derry and Samba Diakite.

Current form:

Chelsea: WDWWDD
QPR: LWLWLW

Possible lineups:

Chelsea: Cech; Ferreira, Terry, Bosingwa, Bertrand; Kalou, Essien, Meireles, Sturridge; Torres

QPR: Kenny; Onuoha, Ferdinand, Hill, Taiwo; Wright-Phillips, Diakite, Barton, Derry, Mackie; Zamora

Sports Mole says: 1-0
