Jose Mourinho is without Brazilian duo David Luiz and Oscar, which actually makes our job of predicting Chelsea’s lineup far easier!
In defence, Gary Cahill and John Terry will continue their blossoming partnership, with ever-picked right-back Branislav Ivanovic and Ashley Cole also starting.
Due to impressive recent form, Mikel will play the anchorman role, meaning Mourinho’s favourite Ramires will play alongside him with more licence to get forward than usual.
Willian will come in for Oscar, allowing Juan Mata to play his favoured no.10 role, with Eden Hazard on the left. The revitalised Fernando Torres will spearhead the side, although Samuel Eto’o will be available from the bench.
