Eduoard Mendy should continue in goal for the west Londoners as league football remains ever so important with Chelsea not yet assured of a top-four finish and Mendy’s recent run of form makes him the best bet between the sticks.

However, Some changes are likely to show in the defence with Kurt Zouma likely to be included at the expense of Thiago Silva who had started the recent UCL semi-final fixture.
