The star striker missed out during his team’s visit to Emirates on Sunday due to a hamstring injury he picked up earlier this month, and the match ended in a draw. With Chelsea in need of just five more points, or two more wins to be crowned title holder since 2010, a win tonight will come handy, and push the team closer to Premier League glory.
The Spanish striker, who has 19 goals and 3 assists in 24 games for the Russian-owned club will likely fill the striking position, which has been more or less void, tonight. Oscar and Loic Remy are already out due to injury, and they won’t be featured on the bench this night. For the match, we could expect a bit of strategy and fine football, as the striker is expected to return some Spain-style of soccer to his side.
In goal: Courtois: he will definitely get a nod ahead of Cech.
In defense: Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta and Ivanovic should fill the spots for the back four positions
Midfield: Fabregas, Matic, Willian and Hazard
Attack: Costa , Drogba.
All things being equal, the blues should get three points from this game.
