We expect Hiddink to stick to the midfield which started against United on Sunday, which means Hazard will have to be content with a place on the bench again. Willian has been the player of the season for the Blues and deserves his place in the team. On the other hand the link up play between Fabregas and Costa has improved significantly after a poor start to the season, therefore it is unlikely that Hiddink will want to change that combination. Matic is improving slowly but is still not the solid figure he was last season. Oscar and Mikel will make up the rest of the midfield.

Striker: Diego Costa

Diego Costa

One player who has benefitted a lot with the departure of Jose Mourinho is Spanish striker Costa. He has started producing goals more frequently and is definitely a handful for the opposition defenders.
