Chelsea welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to Stamford Bridge for this Boxing Day fixture.

Thankfully, the kick-off is at 15:00 hours allowing those attending the game the luxury of a few extra hours in overcoming the traditional travel problem inflicted on the supporters by the closure of Fulham Broadway tube station.

The home support will be looking for Chelsea to get back to winning ways after the 0-0 draw against Everton, at Goodison Park, on Saturday.

With Stamford Bridge filling up nicely and with the atmosphere building, we are now able to bring you the team-sheets:

Chelsea – Courtois, Rudiger, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Moses, Alonso, Fabregas, Hazard, Kante, Bakayoko, Morata.

Subs – Caballero, Drinkwater, Pedro, Zappacosta, Willian, Ampadu, Batshuayi.

Brighton – Ryan, Dunk, Duffy, Suttner, Schelotto, Stephens, March, Kayal, Pröpper, Izquierdo, Hemed.

Subs – Krul, Bruno, Baldock, Knockaert, Gross, Murray, Goldson.
