Stoke v Chelsea - Early Team News
Ten points clear of the chasing pack and with eleven games to go, Chelsea are in a commanding position in the race for the Premier League title.
However, the race is far from over and Antonio Conte will be warning his squad of the perils of complacency.
This Saturday, in a traditional 15:00 hours Saturday afternoon kick-off, Chelsea travel to the Potteries to take on Stoke City.
Ahead of the fixture we have some early team news.
Starting with our hosts, Stoke City:
Mark Hughes will be without the former Chelsea defender, Glen Johnson, who is absent with a shoulder injury.
However, Hughes is expected to be able to welcome back Marko Arnautivic who missed the midweek game courtesy of an unspecified illness.
Others who are likely to be available after recently missing out are Xherdan Shaqiri and Wilfried Bony.
Continuing with Chelsea:
There have been reports circulating that Victor Moses may miss out on the opportunity to face a club with whom he spent a season on loan with having picked up a muscle injury in the FA Cup quarter-final clash with Manchester United. However, at his pre-match press conference, Antonio Conte informed those in attendance that the Nigerian international had trained with the squad today.
However, if Moses isn`t considered fit enough to play Conte has a number of options to consider. These include playing Pedro in Moses role or moving Azpilicueta to the right wing-back slot and playing Kurt Zouma in the back three.
