Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo insists Danny Sturridge will see plenty of action in the coming weeks.
The England striker was a late substitute during the draw with QPR.
"We've only played four in the league now," said Di Matteo, whose attention now shifts to Wednesday's Champions League clash with Juventus.
"We're going to have seven games - including this - in 21 days.
"So there is time for everybody to play."
He added of Sturridge: "He can maybe play more minutes, for sure.
"As long as he keeps training well and, when he has the opportunities, shows his qualities, that's the way forward, and he will get chances to play as well."
