Hoddle, Chelsea's player-manager who will name his side this morning, is doubtful with tendinitis. Captain Wise (flu) and midfielder Burley (hamstring) are also giving Hoddle selection headaches. Stein is still out but Peacock and Newton are back. Donaghy, Spackman and Cascarino are on standby. For Luton, who have no late injury scares, Thomas may be preferred to James at left-back just 17 days after rejoining the club from West Ham.
Oldham v Manchester United
Oldham await tests on Henry (hamstring) and Bernard (recovering from cartilage surgery) - both played for half an hour in yesterday's friendly against a Norwegian club side, Molde. Redmond is suspended, as are United's Cantona, Keane and Kanchelskis. Dublin is likely to partner Hughes up front, with Robson playing in midfield. Parker (groin) should be fit.Reuse content
