Chelsea take on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side we think Guus Hiddink will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois is expected to keep his place between the sticks with Asmir Begovic once again among the substitutes.

Defence: John Terry is expected to return to the squad after missing last weeks win over Aston Villa with a minor calf injury so Matt Miazga could drop out despite putting in a solid display on his debut.

Gary Cahill is also likely to return after missing the trip to Villa Park with a minor knock so Branislav Ivanovic should revert to right-back with Cesar Azpilicueta moving across to left-back.

Midfield: I think Hiddink might give John Obi Mikel a breather with Nemanja Matic coming back in to the side to start along with Spanish international Cesc Fabregas in the middle of the park, while Oscar could come back in to replace Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the advanced central midfield role.

Attack: Diego Costa will miss the game through suspension while Loic Remy has been ruled out with a groin injury so Alexandre Pato could make his first start for the club after coming off the bench to score on his debut last weekend.

Willian should get a recall after only being named on the bench against Villa having only returned from international duty 24 hours before the game while Pedro is likely to keep his place in the team after scoring twice at Villa Park.

Eden Hazard remains a major doubt due to a hip problem that’s hampered him in recent weeks.

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

What do you think of the line-up? What would be your team?

    What’s the poin of this team? Why would you not use rlc, traore, or Kennedy?why would we want to see the same u see underachievers that have got us into this position to begin with? Oscar, matic, have done nothing all season, Willian had a great first half, done very little in the second, fabregas has only recently started playing to the level he can, pedro has had a very mixed first season,
    The kids are the future. If you can’t expect them to start against a Swansea team languishing in the bottom half, on top of having nothing left to play for

    I think chelsea are deciding wrong to sell hazard.And it may be the wrongest decision ever. Chelsea must eye on Coutinho to sing for the next season. He will prove himself better at Chelsea. Don’t sell hard and willian. They are the star players of chelsea.

    Chelsea fc is known all over the world for their wise decisions most times,but recently the reverse has been the case. First,it started with the selling of Chelsea best players like David luiz,Juan mata,Kelvin de bruny,Muhammed salah,Andre shurle,romelu lukaku,and many others,which the most annoying was the departure of the Chelsea ace Peter Czech. Now the refusal of contracting John terry became another STEP TO THE VALLEY,a decision taken by the same wise board. If Chelsea is to make a sell this summer,it should not be on the likes of Oscar and Willian. Magic,Ivrnovic,and Cahill has never been in their best forms this season,why not let them go? For the line up against Swansea on Saturday, I suggest Chelsea should look into this line up prediction. 1 Begovic, 2 Ceaser, 3 Baba raham, 4 Mikel, 5 maizga, 6 John terry, 7

    Chelsea fc is world wide know and we the funs of the club WE are not happy with Chelsea transfer boad. They have sold many good players e.g David L, D bryen, Shurre, Mata etc add all players are performing very well we are lagging behind coz of the average players we are having. These player are the ones bring problems star players like Hazard becouse he is over worked.
    So we sound to the board Loudly that Hazard MUST not be sold. Take an Example of Barcelona they dont price messi, real madrid they dont, they rather bench the player. U mantained mikel he is now back on form why to sell Hazard even u Have not yet looked for the replacement of Ramirez Keep Hazard bring in more stars like D costa, Abomeyanga, Grizman. Pogba, BUT HAZARD Should GO NO WHERE.
