Chelsea will be looking to get their Premier League title defence back on track when they take on Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side I think Jose Mourinho will pick:

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois is a major injury doubt after picking up an ankle injury in training on Wednesday. The Belgian international will be assessed on Friday but as it stands it looks like Asmir Begovic may have to deputise in goal.

Defence: Mourinho was furious with how his team defended against Crystal Palace last time out but I’m not convinced he’ll make too many changes at the back just yet. John Terry is set to return from suspension so he should help shore up the back four this weekend.

I think Gary Cahill will get the nod ahead of Kurt Zouma with Cesar Azpilicueta also keeping his place at left-back. Branislav Ivanovic has been heavily criticised for his performances so far this season but I don’t think we’ll see the experienced Serb axed from the side any time soon.

Midfield: Mourinho was also extremely critical of Cesc Fabregas’s display against Palace but again I think we’ll see him stick by the Spaniard and hope that his public dressing down will motivate the midfielder. Therefore, I think we’ll see Fabregas start alongside Nemanja Matic in midfield.

Attack: Willian has arguably been Chelsea’s most consistent performer so far so it’s hard to see the hard-working Brazilian left out. Eden Hazard is yet to hit top form this season but there’s no way he’ll be dropped so expect to see him start on the left once again.

Diego Costa is another who’s under-performing this season but he should continue to lead the line up front with summer signing Pedro on the right.

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

What do you think? What line-up would you like to see start?

    We need a shake up cause right now neither of our 2 most creative players Cescy/Hazard are awake. Cescy isn’t getting any time or space needed to do anything and Hazard is asleep. Iva needs chopping and Cahill is a shadow of himself. Costa and Falcao are both off form. Yes they will all come together in the not too distant future but they need a sharp kickup the backside.
    Heres my suggestion. A 4-3-3 with Asmir/Baba/JT/Zouma/Dave/Matic/Cescy/Oscar/Kenedy/Falcao/Pedro

    Pls dont start with ivanovic cos all of the goals consided has just come from his side, so this is how i wish to be:
    Baba, Terry, Cahil, Azpilicueta
    Matic, Fabregas
    Hazard, Willian,Pedro
    Diego Costa. And then if there wll be some substitutions,
    Kenedy for Willian, Ramires for Fabregas and Remy for Costa

    Bench Costa, Fabregas and/or Hazard. Start Falcao & Kennedy. Willian behind the striker. Give Baba some minutes. We might also need Mikel, especially if we don’t concede first. His presence gives the back line some confidence which is what they re really lacking now.
