Although Jose Mourinho has no injury worries, he will be without first choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois after he was sent off against Swansea with Asmir Begovic expected to start.

Oscar is also a doubt but will be assessed before the game, with the rest of the squad available for selection.

As you would expect, our chosen XI have heaps of Premier League experience, appearing in just over 2,010 games as well as scoring 200 goals and assisting 232 times.

Eden Hazard was also a brilliant once again in front of goal, scoring 19 times with 14 of these coming in the Premier League as well as contributing with 11 assists.

There was also a fair number of goals from the back line last season, with John Terry (8), Branislav Ivanovic (6) and Gary Cahill (3) all contributing.
