Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):

Substitutes from: Petr Cech, Tomas Kalas, John Terry, Lewis Baker, Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Fernando Torres


Congratulations to Mikel for his 300th appearance for the club!

Mourinho said he's taking this seriously, but it's the hosts who field just about their first-choice strongest; Chelsea go for a much-changed look that could very well be a 4-3-3, depending on just where Ramires ends up playing.

Lewis Baker makes the bench for the second time; hopefully the match situation becomes such that he's able to make his debut.
