CONFIRMED: Stoke City V Chelsea Starting XIs

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has opted to retain the back four that played against Dynamo in the midweek with Gary Cahill again falling out to a poor performance against Liverpool last weekend.

However, up front, Eden Hazard has been restored at the no.10, with Pedro replacing Oscar on the left wing. Fabregas remains on the bench while Ivanovic hasn’t recovered fully to make it to the matchday squad.

Plenty of attacking options are available on the bench for the Portuguese tactician to shift his team around in-play.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes has named an exciting trio behind sole striker Jonathan Walters and the Baggies will be looking to rip through a struggling Chelsea defence that has conceded more than two goals in nine of their 11 Premier League fixtures this season thus far.

Britannia Stadium club have won only one of their first five home games this season, losing three in the process that also includes a 2-0 defeat to Watford in their last outing here.

Stoke City V Chelsea Confirmed Lineups

Stoke City: Butland; Johnson, Shawcross, Wollscheid, Pieters; Whelan, Adam; Shaqiri, Bojan, Arnautovic; Walters

Subs: Haugaard, Wilson, Ireland, Afellay, Cameron, Diouf, Crouch
