Match to be played on Saturday 13th December 2014 at 15:00. Venue: Stamford Bridge, London.
The Blues lost their unbeaten record against Newcastle United in their last league game and it’s important for them to react in the right manner and to prevent Manchester City from gaining any more ground on them at the top.
The incentive for Chelsea is that they can create a six point lead if they ensure they beat Hull and City drop points.
For Hull, it’s a case of sticking to a game plan, working together and trying to get the three points that will pull the side out of the Premier League’s bottom three.
Hull manager Steve Bruce will want to see a bit more from his team than they managed in the 0-0 draw against West Brom though he’ll be delighted if his side can keep a clean sheet in this game.
Here are the potential teams that each manager could select.
Chelsea: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Schurrle, Matic, Ramires, Oscar, Hazard, Costa
Hull City: McGregor, Elmohamaday, Dawson, Chester, Rosenior, Meyler, Livermore, Huddlestone, Quinn, Jelavic, Hernandez
