A number of internationals can be fielded, including the likes of Daniel Drinkwater and Michy Batshuayi, are likely to be fielded as they look for first-team minutes. Even if they replace N'Golo Kante and Alvaro Morata, Chelsea's side cannot be considered weakened.

The Blues' form in recent weeks has been excellent; the club has not lost since December 9, but they were held to a breathless 2-2 draw by Arsenal on Friday.

They are likely to focus significant effort on their hunt for FA Cup glory, too, as the Premier League title race is over in all but name.
