Jose Mourinho has made six changes as Chelsea faced Steve McClaren's Derby at the iPro Stadium in the FA Cup third round.
Mark Schwarzer, David Luiz, Michael Essien, Oscar, Willian and Samuel Eto'o came in following the 3-0 Premier League win at Southampton, with Petr Cech, John Terry, Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle and Fernando Torres replaced.
McClaren's Derby, who have lost just two of the former England manager's 15 games in charge, made two enforced changes following the Sky Bet Championship loss to Wigan, with striker Johnny Russell (fractured cheekbone) and midfielder Craig Bryson (leg) absent and Jeff Hendrick and Simon Dawkins replacing them.
