* Skrtel and Gerrard return after being rested at the weekend.
* Emre Can starts his eighth game in a row, once again at the expense of £20m summer signing Dejan Lovren.
* It looks like Markovic will be playing on the right again, ostensibly as a wing-back. For me, he's wasted in that role; it requires far too much defending/running/tracking back, and Markovic should be spending most of his time attacking (IMO).
* Gary Cahill has (seemingly) paid the price for Chelsea's 4-2 drubbing at the weekend. The England man scored one of Chelsea's goals, but that wasn't enough to save him from the chop. It's a surprise considering the importance of the game, and Zouma's comparative inexperience.
I still can't see past Chelsea winning this game. My prediction: 3-1
