Chelsea legend Didier Drogba will start from the beginning in his final ever match for Jose Mourinho's side.
The 37-year-old Ivorian announced this morning that he will leave Stamford Bridge after returning for a second spell to help the Blues lift the Premier League title.
Willian and Eden Hazard sit behind the big striker while Nemanja Matic and John Obi Mikel are in the anchor role. Cesc Fabregas misses out through suspension after being sent off in the 3-0 defeat to West Brom.
Diego Costa, meanwhile, must come off the bench if he is to make an appearance this afternoon.
