Ahead of Saturday's FA Cup tie between Hull City and Chelsea, Sports Mole looks at how the Blues could line up at the KCOM Stadium.
By , Senior Reporter | 29d

Chelsea take on Hull City in the FA Cup fourth round looking to return to winning ways after a poor few days in the Premier League.

On the back of a late defeat at Newcastle United, the Blues could only record a 2-2 draw with 10-man Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

However, despite planning to make many alterations, Frank Lampard will expect his players to produce an improved showing against the Championship outfit.

Here, Sports Mole predicts how the West Londoners could line up at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday evening.




Out: Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Achilles), Christian Pulisic (groin),
Doubtful: Reece James (knee), Tammy Abraham (ankle)

The most significant changes are expected in defence with Lampard potentially changing all five players at the back, which will include a recall for Willy Caballero.

Academy graduate Tariq Lamptey could get the nod at right-back as Reece James is eased back after a knee injury, while Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori are in line to play in the centre.

Having overcome a glute injury, Marcos Alonso should get the nod at left-back ahead of Emerson Palmieri and Cesar Azpilicueta, who could miss out entirely after a busy schedule.

Further forward, Mateo Kovacic may take over duties in front of the back four to allow Ross Barkley and Mason Mount to be used in more advanced positions.

Pedro is almost a certain starter on the flank, while Willian will likely be preferred to Callum Hudson-Odoi after sitting out the final 20 minutes against Arsenal.

Michy Batshuayi will start down the middle, leaving either Tammy Abraham or Olivier Giroud to be named as his deputy on the substitutes' bench.
