The Londoners are currently occupying the third position in the league, and a victory against the Tigers would take them on top of the table, depending on other results.
Jose Mourinho has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game, which means the Portuguese will likely to have a selection headache for this tie.
In defence, expect skipper John Terry to lead the line alongside Gary Cahill. Branislav Ivanovic is injured, which means Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta would take the right-back role, while Ashley Cole will take his customary left-back position.
Frank Lampard is likely to miss out with injury problem; hence, Mourinho would go with John Obi Mikel and Ramires. He might also try David Luiz for that role, having used him once in the defensive midfield role.
Willian, Hazard and Oscar – should form the attacking trio and they deserve it, solely based on their form this season. Juan Mata will miss out in that case.
Prediction: 1-2; Hull have won just once in their last seven games, while Chelsea are unbeaten in their last six games against the Tigers. Expect the Blues to earn full three points on Saturday.
