Chelsea will be looking to inflict more misery on Manchester United when they head to Old Trafford on Monday evening. Here is the side we think Guus Hiddink will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois is certain to keep his place between the sticks despite conceding twice against Watford on Saturday.

Defence: Hiddink could make one change to the back four with Kurt Zouma being recalled in place of Gary Cahill after being left on the bench last time out. John Terry, Cesar Azpilicueta and Branislav Ivanovic are expected to keep their places in defence.

Midfield: Cesc Fabregas was hauled off at half-time during the 2-2 draw with Watford so we could see the Spaniard left out against United with Ramires brought in alongside Nemanja Matic to add more steel and defensive stability in midfield.

Attack: Eden Hazard was only deemed fit enough for a place on the bench yesterday after recovering from a minor hip injury but the Belgian international should be restored to the starting eleven at Old Trafford. Oscar is the most likely to make way with Pedro and Willian keeping their places in attack.

Diego Costa is suspended for the game after picking up his fifth booking of the season against Watford so Loic Remy could lead the line up front.

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