Chelsea will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on Watford at Stamford Bridge in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday. Here is the side I think Jose Mourinho will select:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois has a minor finger injury but Petr Cech was likely to start in goal for this game in any case.
Defence: Mourinho is likely to take this opportunity to rest a few of his key men after a gruelling festive period with Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic expected to be given a breather. This would allow Cesar Azpilicueta to move to right-back with Filipe Luis coming in on the left and Kurt Zouma starting alongside John Terry in the center of defence.
Midfield: John Obi Mikel is expected to be recalled to start alongside Nemanja Matic in midfield with Cesc Fabregas potentially moving into a more advanced position.
Attack: With the Spaniard further forward, this would allow Eden Hazard to finally get a well-earned rest while Andre Schurrle could also come in for Oscar. Ramires is pushing for a start in place of Willian while I’d expect Diego Costa to be rested, with Didier Drogba the favourite ahead of Loic Remy to replace him up front.
Here if how I think we’ll see Chelsea line-up:
