No surprises in Chelsea lineup to face Tottenham Hotspur

Chelsea look to maintain or extend their six point gap atop the Premier League table on Wednesday, when they host Tottenham Hotspur. They'll be doing so without Diego Costa, who will be serving a one-match suspension after receiving his fifth yellow card.

With the club in relatively good form at the moment, there's little reason for Jose Mourinho to do any Rafa-like tinkering. He hasn't, and will lineup in familiar fashion today:

Chelsea XI: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Matic, Fabregas, Oscar, Willian, Hazard, Drogba

Chelsea bench: Cech, Zouma, Luis, Mikel, Salah, Schurrle, Remy

Tottenham will counter with the following:

Spurs XI: Lloris, Chiriches, Fazio, Vertonghen, Davies, Bentaleb, Mason, Lennon, Eriksen, Lamela, Kane

Spurs bench: Vorm, Kaboul, Paulinho, Chadli, Naughton, Dier, Torres Soldado

Here's hoping this one ends up in a lopsided Chelsea victory, and we get to sing 90 minutes of the Willian song.
