Hiddink To Make 2 Changes: Predicted Chelsea Line-Up vs Tottenham

Chelsea take on London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Monday night. Here is the side we think Guus Hiddink will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois serves the final match of his two-game suspension so Asmir Begovic will continue in goal.

Defence: Chelsea have been handed a major double injury boost with John Terry and Gary Cahill returning to the squad and the pair should come straight back in to the starting eleven tomorrow.

That would allow Branislav Ivanovic to revert to his usual right-back role with Cesar Azpilicueta moving across to the left side of defence.

Midfield: With Terry and Cahill back in defence, John Obi Mikel can move back in to his central midfield role having filled-in at the back against Bournemouth last weekend. Nemanja Matic is therefore expected to drop to the bench with Cesc Fabregas keeping his place in the middle of the park.

Attack: Eden Hazard broke his Premier League duck with a brace last time out so the Belgian should retain his place and is likely to be joined in attack by Pedro and Willian with Oscar once again overlooked.

Diego Costa will continue to lead the line up front with Alexandre Pato and Radamel Falcao once again on the bench.

Here is how I think we’ll see Chelsea line-up:
