Samba Diakite has not trained all week due to illness, while Djibril Cisse is also doubtful with a knee problem.
What a week it's been for Chelsea and they can look forward to a heroes reception on their return to Stamford Bridge following Tuesday's incredible game in Barcelona. However, it's not going to be all smiles and handshakes between the two teams when they meet face-to-face ahead of kick off.
It's the first league meeting since John Terry was charged with racially abusing Anton Ferdinand during the match between the sides at Loftus Road last October, so the pre-match handshake was set to take centre stage and dominate the headlines.

"QPR are scrapping for survival and will be ready for what will be the biggest game of their season."
Read Lawro's full prediction and score
That's not going to happen now following the Premier League's decision to cancel the ritual for this one game because of the legal situation involving the two players. It also avoids the potential of the whole thing descending into farce or acrimony before a ball is even kicked.
QPR badly need the points as they strive to avoid relegation but, as we've all seen, Chelsea are a different proposition now compared with just a few weeks ago in the latter stages of Andre Villas-Boas's short reign.
They've only lost one match of the 15 played since Roberto di Matteo took over on a caretaker basis, with 10 wins and four draws. The highlight of course is reaching the Champions League final, where they'll play Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena on the 19 May, but they might have to win it to be in next season's competition.
Chelsea currently sit in sixth position in the table, four points behind fourth-placed Newcastle with four games to play, including a home match against the Geordies. If Chelsea were to finish as Champions League winners but outside the top four, then the fourth-placed team would have to enter the Europa League instead.
This will be Chelsea's eighth London derby in the league this season and they haven't managed to win any of the previous seven. QPR in contrast, have won three of the seven derby matches they've played so far, but all the wins have come at home.
Their away record over the whole season isn't good at all with a division-low 11 points collected on the road. Mark Hughes's team have alternated between home wins and away defeats in their last eight games, with victories over Liverpool, Arsenal, Swansea and Spurs hoisting them above the relegation zone going into the weekend.
