So no Hazard and no Alexis in the respective starting lineups, but both are available as substitutes.

Hiddink gives Matic another chance, while Pedro and Ramires are nowhere to be found.  That's sure to fuel some transfer speculation regardless of what the actual reason behind their absences may be.
