Premier League football returns from the international break as Chelsea take on Leicester City at Stamford Bridge this lunchtime.
Chelsea have been handed a boost by the return of John Terry after he recovered from an ankle injury but the skipper is only selected for the bench with Antonio Conte sticking with the same back three that started the win at Hull two weeks ago.
Therefore, Gary Cahill captains the side and starts alongside David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta at the back while Victor Moses is passed fit to start in the right wing-back role with Marcos Alonso on the left.
Pedro gets a recall to the starting eleven as he replaces Willian after the Brazilian attacker remained in South America to be with his family following the death of his mother.
Cesc Fabregas misses out through injury while Oscar and Branislav Ivanovic aren’t named in the matchday squad.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill (c), Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso, Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard.
Subs: Begovic, Aina, Terry, Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek, Batshuayi, Solanke.
Schmeichel, Hernández, Huth, Morgan (c), Fuchs, Albrighton, Drinkwater, Amartey, Schlupp, Musa, Vardy.
Subs: Zieler, King, Simpson, Slimani, Gray, Ulloa, Mahrez.
