MISSING ... Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic is suspended at Sunderland.

CHELSEA are set to ring the changes as they head to the North East for tomorrow night’s Capital One Cup quarter-final at Sunderland.

Branislav Ivanovic is suspended, so Cesar Azpilicueta will switch to right-back, with Ashley Cole at left-back, while Gary Cahill may return in central defence after being rested for the Premier League defeat of Crystal Palace, with John Terry possibly given the night off.

Manager Jose Mourinho is likely to make a number of further changes, with the December 23 Premier League clash at Arsenal in mind, while left-back Ryan Bertrand (knee) and midfielder Marco van Ginkel (knee) are out.

Provisional squad: Cech, Cole, Luiz, Essien, Ramires, Lampard, Torres, Mata, Oscar, Mikel, Schurrle, De Bruyne, Hazard, Ba, Willian, Schwarzer, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Eto’o, Blackman.
