Maurizio Sarri has enjoyed a strong start to life at Stamford Bridge, and though his side lie fourth in the Premier League table, they have suffered only two defeats.
In domestic play, they have won their last four matches, with their last home game a 2-0 victory over Manchester City.
Position Chelsea squad
Goalkeepers Kepa, Caballero, Green, Bulka

Midfielders Moses, Fabregas, Jorginho, Kante, Pedro, Hazard, Drinkwater, Barkley, Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic, Hudson-Odoi, Willian
Forwards Giroud, Morata
A thigh injury continues to keep Victor Moses pinned to the sidelines, while there are doubts over the fitness of Eden Hazard, who sustained an ankle knock at the weekend and seems unlikely to be risked ahead of a packed schedule.
Alvaro Morata is a further concern.

Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth side have a sprinkling of issues ahead of this encounter, with Adam Smith, Lewis Cook and Dan Gosling all long-term concerns. Simon Francis may also miss out.
Possible Bournemouth starting XI: Begovic; S Cook, Ake, Daniels; Stanislas, Surman, Lerma, Brooks, Rico; Wilson, King
