Chelsea take on Everton at Stamford Bridge in Saturday’s early kick off looking to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.
Ahead of the game, boss Jose Mourinho has been speaking at his pre-match press conference and gave reporters a team news and injury update.
The Portuguese coach confirmed that John Terry is back in contention after missing the last three games with a leg injury. The skipper will come straight back in to the side in place of David Luiz, who’s been ruled out with a muscle injury.
Mourinho has also confirmed that he’ll play a strong side and won’t be tempted to rest any of his key men ahead of Wednesday nights Champions League clash with Galatasaray.
That means the likes of Branislav Ivanovic, Ramires, Oscar and Eden Hazard are all expected to start while Nemanja Matic could keep Frank Lampard out of the team in midfield. Fernando Torres is pushing for a recall after returning from injury and Willian is likely to be given the nod ahead of Mohamed Salah and Andre Schurrle in attack.
Here’s our predicted starting eleven.
With Chelsea playing first this weekend, they have the opportunity to extend their lead over second-placed Arsenal to four points ahead of the Gunners clash with Sunderland later in the day.
