Despite recording 12 points from their last six games, Rafael Benitez's side remain under pressure from Lazio and Sampdoria in the race for third spot, while they have six points to make up if they want to challenge Roma in second place.
Benitez is unlikely to tinker with his starting lineup but winger Dries Mertens could be included should the Spaniard opt to make an alteration in attack.
Chievo's defeat to Juventus last week has seen them fall into the relegation zone in Serie A but the Gialloblu weren't disgraced in falling to a 2-0 setback in Turin.
However, only letting in two goals to the leaders ensured that they maintained their record of not conceding more than twice in a match since October 18.
Chievo will perhaps take confidence from the fact that one of their four league victories this season came in the reverse fixture in Naples.
