The 32-year-old former Cameroon international striker, who signed from Anzhi Makhachkala in the summer transfer window, is likely to start from the bench and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said: "He will be selected and when you are selected as a striker you play - you start or finish the game.
"It is the area where I make more changes during the match," added the Portuguese, who reported no injury problems with Chelsea players returning from the international break.
