Chelsea will look to go another step closer to reclaiming the Premier League title when they take on Southampton at Stamford Bridge this evening.

Antonio Conte has recalled Gary Cahill to the starting eleven after the defender recovered from the illness that kept him out of Saturday’s FA Cup win over Tottenham. Nathan Ake is the man unlucky to drop out as he played well at Wembley.

As expected, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa are recalled in attack after being surprisingly left on the bench against Spurs with Michy Batshuayi and Willian dropping out.

Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas is also given another start with Pedro named among the substitutes.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Chelsea

Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso; Fabregas, Diego Costa, Hazard

Subs: Begovic, Ake, Terry, Chalobah, Willian, Pedro, Batshuayi.

Southampton

Forster, Cédric, Stephens, Yoshida, Bertrand, Romeu, Davis, Ward-Prowse, Tadić, Boufal, Gabbiadini.

Subs: Hassen, Caceres, Clasie, Hojbjerg, Long, Redmond, Rodriguez.
