Cesc Fabregas continues in the middle of the park, with Nemanja Matic having to make do with a place on the bench.
The meanest defence in the English top-flight will be hoping to collect another clean sheet, while Diego Costa has ground to make up in the race for the Golden Boot.
Elsewhere, Victor Moses will line up against his former loan employers as Chelsea seek to re-establish a 10-point lead at the top of the table.
Chelsea team: Courtois, Cahill, David Luiz, Azpilicueta, Moses, Alonso, Kanté, Fàbregas, Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard. Subs: Begovic, Terry, Zouma, Matic, Loftus-Cheek, Willian, Batshuayi.
