Just five days after knocking holders Manchester United out of the FA Cup Chelsea return to Premier League action with a trip to Stoke City today.
A win will move The Blues 13 points ahead of their nearest rivals with ten games left to play. When Chelsea welcome the Potters to Stamford Bridge on New Year's eve they came out 4-3 winners and will be hoping for a similar scoreline today.
Chelsea have benefited from a largely settled side with few injuries this season, and that looks to mostly continue with today's line-up featuring only one enforced change.

After strong recent showings Cesc Fabregas will get a rare start in favour of Nemanja Matić.
Victor Moses is the only injury doubt ahead of the game. The wing-back came off during the final minutes of Chelsea's victory against Man United with a reported calf strain.
Pedro could move into his wing-back slot after sitting out Monday's game, while William looks certain to keep his place in attack.
