Chelsea are set to play their fourth game in just eight days as Sunderland travel to Stamford Bridge for a Premier League encounter.
The London club are currently fighting on three fronts as they aim to secure fourth place in the Premier League and win the FA Cup and Europa League.
After games against Southampton, Manchester United and Rubin Kazan this week and with the Sunderland match in mind, Chelsea interim manager Rafa Benitez said that he would make changes in an attempt to keep his squad fit and fresh.
"It depends on each player - it's not just thinking 'I have to do this, I have to do that'. You see the players that you have, who has fresh legs, if they are fine, positions and you decide so I don't know how many we will change but we have to change."
The Spaniard said, "You see the players that you have, who has fresh legs, if they are fine, positions and you decide so I don't know how many we will change but we have to change."
Following Sunday's game, Chelsea then travel to Russia to take on Rubin Kazan in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final next before playing Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final.
Benitez is hopeful despite the congested programme.
"I would like to think about positives and hopefully we can win and we will talk about three wins in a week,” says Benitez.
"It will be difficult but still I have confidence that we can manage the squad, that we can make changes before games. If the players have fresh legs and are right I think we can go right to the end."
