Fuming Scolari to name Chelsea stars for Southend clash

Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari is ready to name a full-strength team for their FA Cup tie with minnows Southend United.

The Sun says he had intended to give up to SIX players a day off.

But Scolari is furious at the defensive lapses that saw Fulham nick a 2-2 draw on Sunday.

Now Petr Cech, Joe Cole, Michael Ballack, Deco, Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka can all expect to face the League One minnows.

Frank Lampard is the only player who will be offered the chance to put his feet up - but he is likely to decline.

Lamps is captain in place of the banned John Terry and has always refused any chance to rest in the past.
