Hull vs. Chelsea: Confirmed lineups and discussion

Julian Finney

Chelsea look to move atop the Premier League table with a win against Hull

Chelsea can jump both Arsenal and Manchester City today, with a win pushing them to the top spot in the table for at least the next 24 hours. It's also a big day for a Chelsea legend, as Petr Cech has his first opportunity to break the all-time Chelsea mark by recording his 209th clean sheet. The Czech keeper is currently tied with Peter Bonetti, but will certainly be hoping to move into the top spot by himself today.

With these things in mind, Jose Mourinho has decided to line up with the following against Hull today:

Chelsea XI: Petr Cech, Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, David Luiz, Ramires, Oscar, Willian, Eden Hazard, Fernando Torres

Chelsea Bench: Mark Schwarzer, John Obi Mikel, Michael Essien, Juan Mata, Andre Schurrle, Samuel Eto'o, Ryan Bertrand

Steve Bruce has named the following for Hull:

Hull City XI: Allan McGregor, James Chester, Alex Bruce, Curtis Davies, Ahmed Elmohamady, Tom Huddlestone, Maynor Figueroa, Jake Livermore, David Meyler, George Boyd, Yannick Sagbo

Hull Tigers Bench: Steve Harper, Danny Graham, Stephen Quinn, Robert Koren, Matty Fryatt, Liam Rosenior, Abdoulaye Faye

As always, keep things civil and don't link or direct to illegal streams of the game. Let's hope Petr gets that record, and that the Blues take maximum points.
