Chelsea are five points clear at the top the Premier League table ahead of the match after Arsenal's last minute victory over Burnley, while Alexis Sanchez's penalty put him ahead of Costa in the race for the league's golden boot. 

Costa has scored 50 goals in his 99 games for the club so far, and starts as Antonio Conte sticks with his regular starting line-up to face the relegation strugglers.
