changing fuel injectors

i was getting ready to change injectors 4 and 8 so went to remove the drain plugs under the valve covers and the head on these plugs just want to strip out
does anyone have any suggestion on how to remove these or is there some other way to prevent oil getting into my cylinders without messing with these plugs
