Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Asmir Begović | César Azpilicueta, John Terry (c), Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanović | Cesc Fàbregas, Ramires | Eden Hazard, Oscar, Willian | Radamel Falcao
Substitutes from: Jamal Blackman, Kurt Zouma, Baba Rahman, Nemanja Matić, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Loïc Rémy
Southampton starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Maarten Stekelenburg | Ryan Bertrand, Virgil van Dijk, José Fonte (c), Cédric Soares | Victor Wanyama, Oriol Romeu | Sadio Mané, Dušan Tadić, Steven Davis | Graziano Pellè
Substitutes from: Kelvin Davis, Maya Yoshida, Shane Long, Jay Rodriguez, Cuco Martina, James Ward-Prowse, Juanmi
As expected, John Terry returns to the starting lineup. Zouma drops to the bench. The back four has last season's familiar shape to it; let's see if they can rediscover that form. Perhaps the one surprise is that Ramires keeps his place, over Matic. Falcao leads the line, the attacking three also last season's familiar setup.
Here we go. COME ON, CHELSEA!
