Sarri gets back to league duties with a complete reshuffle of the side that eliminated Bournemouth from the EFL Cup on Wednesday, with only Arrizabalaga, Rudiger, Kovacic, Willian and skipper Azpilicueta retaining their places from their midweek victory. Hazard, who came off the bench to score the game’s sole goal to see them through to the semi-finals, starts up top for the Blues in a false-nine position sandwiched between Pedro and the Brazil winger.
