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.
