Jose Mourinho will be looking rally his troops for the last stretch of the season when the Blues host Southampton on Sunday, having just Premier League to focus on following their Champions League exit.

The game is scheduled to get underway at 3:30PM.

Chelsea, are currently five points clear at the top of the league, and the only notable player that isn’t available for them is the injured John Obi Mikel.

Other than his absence, Mourinho has a full-strength squad at his disposal, and could look to use Juan Cuadrado in the place of one of his wide players.

The Portuguese manager’s team come in to the tie, having not lost in their last 14 Premier League home games this season, and the Blues are unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 games against Ronald Koeman’s Southampton side.

Southampton, who are currently seventh in the league, have lost three of their last five games, but still have the best defensive record in the English top-flight.

Filip Djuricic could retain his place in behind Graziano Pelle in Southampton’s attack, and Toby Aldeweireld could come in to the team after only having made the bench in their last game.

Here is how the two teams line up:

Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Diego Costa

Southampton:  Forster, Clyne, Fonte (c), Alderweireld, Bertrand, Wanyama, Schneiderlin, S. Davis, Tadić, Mané, Long
