Chelsea will return from a week's warm-weather training in Spain to what is expected to be a sizzling atmosphere when they make the short trip to QPR for Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round tie.

Hammersmith and Fulham Police issued a statement saying they are working with both clubs to "deal appropriately with offensive or discriminatory behaviour" as the teams prepare to meet for the first time since a controversial clash in October which saw Blues captain John Terry charged with racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand. Terry has denied any wrongdoing.

New signing Gary Cahill is trying to keep his focus on the pitch, and said: "I came in on the Tuesday, trained for just a few days before the game at Norwich and then we came straight over on a plane to Mallorca. Training has been really good and it has been enjoyable to get to know the lads - I know everyone a lot better now."
