Since winning the league, Jose Mourinho has pledged to play the kids, and so far we've seen Ruben Loftus-Cheek handed two starts, with Nathan Ake and Izzy Brown coming off the bench as well. And it seems that the youth movement isn't over quite yet:

Andreas Christensen was on the bench for the West Brom defeat, but 18-year-old Jeremie Boga's presence is a bit of a surprise. Not that it wouldn't be deserved -- he's widely regarded as one of the very brightest lights in the academy and a debut has been perhaps too long in coming. As usual, @chelseayouth has a good introduction.

Boga might be our best bet for a special moment from the young players -- wouldn't it be something if he marked the appearance with a goal?

Meanwhile, Petr Cech will feature if fit, and Eden Hazard still hasn't returned to training after wisdom tooth surgery, although Mourinho is hopeful that the Belgian might be able to play some part.
