Those three were rested from the midweek Europa League trip and Cesar Azpilicueta and Olivier Giroud, who were among the subs on Thursday, also return to the starting line-up. There is no Pedro today following his shoulder injury at the end of the game in Greece so Willian starts.

For West Ham, Marko Arnautovic has not recovered from injury in time to be involved. His place in attack is taken by Michail Antonio. That is the only change from the Hammers side that won for the first time this season last weekend, away at Everton.  

Chelsea are expected to line up as follows:

Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta (c), David Luiz, Rudiger, Alonso; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Willian, Giroud, Hazard.

Subs: Caballero, Cahill, Zappacosta, Fabregas, Barkley, Moses, Morata.

West Ham: Fabianski; Zabaleta, Balbuena, Diop, Masuaku; Rice; Yarmolenko, Noble (c), Obiang, Anderson; Antonio.

Subs: Adrian, Cresswell, Ogbonna, Snodgrass, Sanchez, Fredericks, Perez.

The referee is Mike Dean

SKY definitely setting out their stall firmly behind West Ham in the pre game program . 

Should Mike Dean "Dean this up " we will not get a sympathetic ear here .

We look uninterested and devoid of ideas. Maybe affect of late return from Greece.

Have to agree , playing the ball around for the sake of it and not quickly enough to hurt them.

As much as we all love Azpi, there are endless times today when he should be making runs down the right and he simply doesn't , it's getting frustrating. Willian should be pushing into the box more and Azpi getting down the right.
