Defender Baba Rahman failed to make the Chelsea team which host Norwich City on Saturday despite helping Ghana advance in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
The left back played the entire duration as the Black Stars beat Comoros 2-0 last Tuesday to reach the Group stage of the qualifiers.
But Rahman has been left out of the squad picked by Jose Mourinho for the must-in clash.
Maybe, Mourinho wants him to recover fully as he report late from international duty.
Serbia international Bransilav Ivanovic has made a return from injury and taken his place in the starting line-up.
Chelsea XI: Begovic; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry (c), Kenedy; Matic, Fabregas; Pedro, Willian, Hazard; Diego Costa.
Subs: Blackman, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Ramires, Oscar, Traore, Remy
