Mourinho Makes 2 Changes: Predicted Chelsea Starting XI To Face Hull

By on March 20, 2015

Chelsea will look to tighten their grip at the top of the Premier League table when they face Hull City on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side I think Jose Mourinho will select:

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois is Mourinho’s No.1 and he’s expected to once again keep Petr Cech out of the side this weekend.

Defence: The Blues have no fresh injury worries to contend with and Mourinho is likely to stick with the same back four that faced Southampton last week. The likes of Kurt Zouma and Filipe Luis are pushing for recalls and are the most likely to be called upon if Jose does make chances at the back, but I think we’ll see Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, John Terry and Cesar Azpiliceuta start on Sunday.

Midfield: Nemanja Matic made his comeback from suspension last week and he should keep his place in the side but Mourinho may opt to bring Ramires in alongside the Serbian international with Cesc Fabregas moved a little further forward. John Obi Mikel remains out with a knee injury but is expected back after the international break.

Attack: With Fabregas playing further forward we could see Oscar drop to the bench while Willian may also get a rest as he’s been carrying a minor knock this week. That could see January signing Juan Cuadrado given another chance to impress while Eden Hazard will continue to support Diego Costa in attack.

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