Chelsea will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the table when they take on Southampton at St Mary’s on Sunday. Here is the side I think Jose Mourinho will select:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois has established himself as Chelsea’s No.1 so he should continue in goal on Sunday with Petr Cech once again on the bench.
Defence: With a tricky away game against Tottenham up next, Mourinho may opt to rest Cesar Azpilicueta with Filipe Luis starting at left-back. Mourinho may be tempted to give John Terry a breather but with the skipper playing so well, I’d expect him to face the Saints and start alongside Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic at the back.
Midfield: Cesc Fabregas could be moved into a more advanced role as he was against Stoke last week with John Obi Mikel coming into the midfield to offer more protection in front of the back four alongside Nemanja Matic.
Attack: With Fabregas further forward it could see Oscar given a rest while Andre Schurrle could be recalled in place of Willian. Jose may consider giving Eden Hazard or Diego Costa a rest with the likes of Ramires, Loic Remy and Didier Drogba all pushing for starts, but I think the duo will once again start in attack on Sunday.
Here if how I think we’ll see Chelsea line-up:
