So far so good this weekend for Chelsea, who are the last to play.

So far, no team in the top six has won this weekend, though Arsenal are currently leading 1-0 against Burnley.

Perfect opportunity to take care of business and increase the gap.


Chelsea starting lineup (3-4-3):
Courtois | Cahill (c), David Luiz, Azpilicueta | Alonso, Matić, Kanté, Moses | Hazard, Costa, Pedro

Substitutes from: Begović, Ake, Zouma, Chalobah, Fabregas, Willian, Batshuayi

Hull City starting eleven:
Jakupovic | Dawson, Davies (c), Maguire, Robertson, Huddlestone, Evandro, Mason, Clucas, Elabdellaoui, Hernandez

Substitutes from: Marshall, Meyler, Maloney, Diomande, Niasse, Tymon, Bowen

Diego Costa is back, as expected.  It's his 100th appearance for Chelsea.  The rest the usual first-choice as well.

Nathan Aké makes the bench for the first time since his return from loan!

It looks like Hull City may be trying a three-man backline, as many have recently?
