Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill and David Luiz continue to form Chelsea’s three-man defence with Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses stationed as wing-backs. N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic will be looking to pull the strings in the middle of the park.

Diego Costa continues to lead the line and will be hoping to extend his good run of form. Eden Hazard, who is in a purple patch himself, will start on the left wing with Pedro on the opposite flank.

John Terry and Willian will start from the bench and so will youngster Nathaniel Chalobah.

The hosts look to deploy a diamond in midfield with Oriol Romeu at one end and Dusan Tadic at the other. A back four comprising of the likes of captain Jose Fonte and former Blues defender Ryan Bertrand will be looking to combat the attacking threat in the Chelsea side.

Striker Charlie Austin has been in a decent run of form and will be hoping to find a way past Thibaut Courtois who has not conceded in his last three Premier League matches.
