Roberto Martinez has revealed that Tom Cleverley is also 50/50 for the fixture after an achilles problem, but you would think he will avoid risking the midfielder given the current form of Gareth Barry and Muhamed Besic.
However, except from that, the Blues are still without Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy, Tyias Browning, and Tony Hibbert for the encounter. This means that there is still an issue at right-back, and John Stones will likely have to fill in at the position.
We hopefully won't have to worry for too long though, with Coleman - and McCarthy - 'not too far away' from returning to the fold.
The opposition have problems of their own, with Eden Hazard ruled out for Chelsea. Although, given how terribly the Belgian has been playing this season - he has failed to score and only managed two assists - there is actually a possibility that this may help Guus Hiddink and co.
On-loan striker Radamel Falcao is also out long term, and is not training yet.
