Hazard has starred for Chelsea since moving from Lille in 2012, winning the Premier League twice, and has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

The feisty Italian coache's future remains the subject of intense speculation, and it will be interesting to see if the Stamford Bridge board fulfil his wish for new signings this month. After, I don't know if he has to stay at Chelsea or not - is that a problem?

Ross Barkley is expected to be fit to make his debut following a hamstring injury in Chelsea's FA Cup third-round replay with Norwich next Wednesday.

"I can not talk about details about players". The Terriers are poor away from home, but they have proved that at the John Smiths Stadium they are a match for anybody. It is not possible to stop him because he can not play in just the same position.

That certainly poses a conundrum, as Conte opted for a full-strength 3-5-2 on Wednesday (and rightly so; it was exactly what we had anticipated, predicted, and projected) and now has to select from a exhausted group of players.

"He has quality, pace, penetration and is good with ball at his feet". Manager Claude Puel chose to rest some of his more important players for last weekend's FA Cup stalemate against Fleetwood Town, most likely with one eye on their visit to the Bridge.

I'm backing a pretty dire 0-0 draw in the one, with both teams lacking quality in forward area's.

The big game of the weekend sees Liverpool host Man City on Sunday afternoon, and I've put up three selections at 9/1, 6/1 and 11/2 for the game in my Big Match Preview right here.

I've been really impressed with Waford's Richarlison since his arrival in the Premier League, and I'm backing him to score anytime here. He is a young player who arrives in a good team where there is competition and he needs to keep working and improve'. "A good response is always a collective response with a competitive organisation".
