Chelsea will be looking to cement their position at the top of the Premier League table with a win when they take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light this evening.

Antonio Conte will have to make do without Eden Hazard as the Belgian international misses out through injury so Willian comes in to the attack alongside Pedro and Diego Costa.

Kurt Zouma is back in the squad after recovering from a serious knee injury but he’s only on the bench as Conte has stuck with Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz and Gary Cahill at the back.

Cesc Fabregas gets a chance to impress in midfield as he’s chosen ahead of Nemanja Matic while Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso keep their places on the wings.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Sunderland

Pickford, Jones, Van Aanholt, Djilobodji, Kone, O’Shea, Denayer, Kirchhoff, Januzaj, Borini, Defoe

Subs: Mannone, Love, Asoro, Larsson, Khazri, Maja, Honeyman

Chelsea

Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Willian, Diego Costa, Pedro.

Subs: Begovic, Ivanovic, Zouma, Chalobah, Matic, Loftus-Cheek, Batshuayi.
