Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas will be playing ahead of Nemanja Matic and partner Mikel Obi in midfield.
Matic played just two minutes in Chelsea’s last league win, with the midfielder missing the match against Scunthorpe. And now Fabregas starts in his stead.
Elsewhere, Kurt Zouma plays ahead of Cahill and plays alongside John Terry in the heart of defense.
Chelsea XI: Courtois; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry, Azpilicueta; Mikel, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Pedro; Diego Costa. Subs: Begovic, Cahill, Matic, Ramires, Kenedy, Loftus-Cheek, Remy.
