Chelsea will be looking to tighten their grip on fourth place with a win when they entertain Southampton this evening. 

Maurizio Sarri has made just one change from the side that beat Crystal Palace last time out with Alvaro Morata getting a recall up front in place of Olivier Giroud – who’s ruled out with an ankle injury that he picked up at Selhurst Park.

Chelsea go with a familiar back four in Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso while Kepa keeps his place in goal. Ross Barkley keeps his place alongside Jorginho and N’Golo Kante in midfield as Mateo Kovacic isn’t named in the squad.

Pedro remains out through injury while Callum Hudson-Odoi is also on the sidelines so Sarri has few options to rotate on the wings. Willian therefore keeps his place alongside Eden Hazard in attack.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Chelsea

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Barkley, Willian, Morata, Hazard

Subs: Caballero, Christensen, Zappacosta, Ampadu, Emeron, Fabregas, Loftus-Cheek

Southampton

Gunn, Cedric, Yoshida, Vestergaard, Bednarek, Valery, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Ings, Redmond

Subs: McCarthy, Stephens, Ramsay, Slattery, Elyounoussi, Long, Austin.
