The Belgium international has been struggling with a hip issue recently but boss Guus Hiddink says he trained well this week and could come off the bench at Dean Court.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois begins his two-match suspension after being sent off for the second time this season against Manchester City.

Captain John Terry will travel with the squad, but remains out with an Achilles problem, while Loic Remy (groin) and Kurt Zouma (knee) are out.

Hiddink says Terry is annoyed that he is still to make his return and is desperate to play again before the end of the season.

“I like people to be with the team. John is very committed. He was very annoyed about his injury and desperately wants to be with the team,” said Hiddink.

Provisional squad: Begovic, Ivanovic, Fabregas, Rahman, Oscar, Falcao, Hazard, Pato, Mikel, Traore, Kenedy, Pedro, Miazga, Willian, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Loftus-Cheek, Amelia.
