Two changes from Monday as Cesc Fàbregas comes back in to the side as the expense of Nemanja Matić and Diego Costa returns and Pedro drops to the bench.  Mikel continues his renaissance under Hiddink, while Zouma retains his spot as Gary Cahill apparently did manage to recover from his foot injury.
