Jose Mourinho is expected to name an unchanged side to the one that could only manage a 1-1 draw against the Saints, with Diego Costa leading the line, and hoping to add to his already impressive goal tally.
Here is how the Blues could line up:
GK- Thibaut Courtois
Courtois has banished the painful memories of being dropped for the Capital One Cup Final by establishing himself once again as the team’s number one.
RB- Branislav Ivanovic
Ivanovic could have had a penalty against Southampton, but his exaggerated tumble seemed to put doubt in the official’s mind.
CB- Gary Cahill
The England defender has started to win back his manager’s trust after an average spell gave Kurt Zouma his chance in the first team.
CB- John Terry
Terry missed an excellent chance to give Chelsea all three points against the Saints, but he’s defending as well as ever which will be pleasing to Mourinho.
