Hull manager Steve Bruce is hoping a sickness bug that has affected nine of his players will not prevent any of them from facing Chelsea.
Paul McShane is out for up to four weeks with an ankle injury sustained against Middlesbrough last weekend, but Stephen Quinn is fit again and could come into contention for a start after featuring in the FA Cup.
Chelsea will again be without Frank Lampard and Branislav Ivanovic after the duo missed the win over Southampton with muscle and knee injuries respectively. Ashley Cole will continue at left-back with Cesar Azpilicueta on the right, while either David Luiz or John Obi Mikel will get the nod to partner Ramires in the middle of the park.
Oscar and Willian look set to get the nod in the attacking midfield three ahead of Juan Mata and Andre Schurrle, after their game changing cameos against the Saints.
