Predicted Hull City and Chelsea line-ups

Hull City KC Stadium at night

Here is how we predict Hull City and Chelsea will line up this weekend:

To be played on Sunday 22nd March 2015 at 16:00. Venue: The KC Stadium, Hull

Odds: Hull City 4/9, Draw 10/3, Chelsea 6/1

Hull City welcome Premier League leaders Chelsea to the KC Stadium on Sunday with both sides desperate for the win.

The Tigers are currently three points clear of the drop-zone and will want to pull further away if possible, but Chelsea will not want to drop more points after their 1-1 draw with Southampton last time out.

Thanks to Manchester City’s shock defeat to Burnley, Jose Mourinho’s side still extended their lead at the top of the table to six points but they will not want to give the reigning champions any hope of a late comeback.

Hull are without James Chester due to a dislocated shoulder and Liam Rosenior due to a hamstring injury.

Mohamed Diame (knee), Robbie Brady (calf) and Robert Snodgrass (knee) are also out while Tom Huddlestone is suspended.

As for Chelsea, they are without John Obi Mikel due to a knee injury while Willian is a minor doubt with a knock.
