[Teams] Chelsea vs Sunderland: Confirmed Line-Ups

By on December 19, 2015

Life without Jose Mourinho will start this afternoon for Chelsea as they entertain Sunderland at Stamford Bridge.

Steve Holland fills in for Mourinho today and he’s recalled Cesc Fabregas to the starting eleven as he starts alongside Nemanja Matic in midfield. Eden Hazard misses out with the hip injury that forced him off against Leicester last Monday.

Kurt Zouma once again starts ahead of Gary Cahill at the back while Pedro Rodriguez joins Oscar and Willian in supporting Diego Costa in attack.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:


Courtois; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Pedro; Diego Costa.

Subs: Begovic, Cahill, Baba Rahman, Mikel, Ramires, Traore, Remy.


Pantillimon; Jones, Coates, O’Shea, Kaboul, Van Aanholt; Toivonen, Rodwell, M’Vila, Watmore; Defoe.

Subs: Mannone, Yedlin, Gomez, Johnson, Graham, Borini, Fletcher.

Back Chelsea to win at odds of 3/1 + money back if you lose
