Predicted Chelsea and Stoke City line-ups

Here are the possible sides Chelsea and Stoke City could go with this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 4th April 2015 at 17:30. Venue: Stamford Bridge, London

Odds: Chelsea 3/10, Draw 19/4, Stoke 12/1

Chelsea will be refreshed after the international break and will go into this weekend looking to preserve their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

There is a real opportunity for the Blues to pull even further clear at the top as they look to wrap up the title as quickly as possible.

Chelsea haven’t been at their best in the club’s last two games, but Jose Mourinho is a manager who knows how to get results against a variety of different opponents and he’ll want the side to make the most of their home advantage.

For Stoke this game is going to be a case of digging in and trying to give the Blues a problem using their obvious physical attributes.

Mark Hughes’ team have lost two out of their last three games and go into the match off the back of a disappointing defeat they need to react well to.

The incentive for Stoke is that should they win, they could move up two places and into the top eight if the other results go their way over the course of the Easter weekend.
