Preview: Reading vs. Chelsea

Sports Mole looks ahead to the Premier League clash between Reading and Chelsea.

Since Rafael Benitez took interim charge of Chelsea back in November last year, the Blues have looked more comfortable when playing away from Stamford Bridge.

Ahead of their trip to Reading on Wednesday night, Chelsea have won four encounters out of five on the road under Benitez's management.

The hosting Royals have also been in positive form of late - losing just one of their last five matches.

Having started on the bench against Sheffield United at the weekend, French winger Jimmy Kebe has been tipped to return to the starting lineup, along with centre-back Sean Morrison.

Meanwhile, Demba Ba could replace Fernando Torres for the away team, but goalkeeper Petr Cech and Brazilian defender David Luiz are both rated as injury doubts.
