GK – Petr Cech
Dropped for the returning Thibaut Courtois in the Capital One Cup first-leg against Liverpool, but set to be recalled.
RB – Andreas Christensen
With Ivanovic likely to be rested and Azpilicueta recovering from a slight injury, Christensen could be handed some valuable first-team experience.
CB – Kurt Zouma
Superb in the last-round 4-0 victory against Watford, getting on the scoresheet, and started the following Premier League game to Newcastle helping the Blues to another clean-sheet and 2-0 win.
CB – Gary Cahill
Cahill and Zouma proved an excellent partnership with the England international keeping his important experience in the back-line.
LB – Filipe Luis
Still needs to impress Mourinho with Azpilicueta to return from injury soon.
