After they had dropped points to Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion, Chelsea returned to winning ways in the Premier League with victories over West Ham United and Southampton.
However, ahead of their trip to Sunderland on Wednesday night, their form away from home has been patchy. Of their six matches away from Stamford Bridge, they've won just two.
Brazilian midfielder Oscar recently picked up an ankle injury, which could rule him out of the match at the Stadium of Light. If he does miss out, then it is expected that Juan Mata will keep his place.
The Blues have won on their last eight visits to the home of the Wearsiders.
Possible starting lineups
Sunderland: Mannone; Bardsley, Dossena, Brown, O'Shea; Ki, Gardner, Larsson, Giaccherini; Borini, Fletcher
Chelsea: Cech; Cole, Terry, Cahill, Ivanovic; Mikel, Ramires; Mata, Hazard, Schurrle; Ba
Sports Mole says: 0-2
