Standard lineup for us - with the exception of Fabregas coming into the starting eleven for Matic. Appears to be no fall out morale wise after Costa spent most of Thursday at Cobham recruiting teammates to help him try and wedge Eden Hazard into a cardboard box.
When I heard the news that Claudio Ranieri was sacked as Leicester manager this week my immediate thought was not for the man that took Leicester to the Premier League title a year ago but of the state of the modern game now.
Described as a "miracle" last year, Claudio Ranieri demonstrated that with the right attitude, with hard work and with a tactical formation that suits the players who understand their roles, you can achieve success.
According to reports in Italy, Antonio Conte has agreed and signed a contract extension at Chelsea until 2020 which is excellent news and reward for his outstanding work at our club this season.
Whatever happens between now and the end of the season (as long as we finish in the top four) Antonio Conte deserves all the credit in the world for what he has done for our club.
Dominic Solanke will leave Chelsea at the end of the season when his current contract expires with plenty of interest in his services. But for ridiculous contract demands, he would still be a Chelsea player next year and beyond.
People talk of our Academy and the succession of youngsters coming through it only to be sold on for profit.
Pedro has been a revelation this season under Antonio Conte whether asked to play as part of our attacking three or at wing-back and he has been speaking about how things have changed for him personally this year.
The 29-year-old signed from Barcelona for £21m two summers ago started life well at the club scoring on his debut away at West Brom.
Jose Mourinho looks like someone with a serious chip on his shoulder these days and has made a number of comments in recent weeks as he tries to start his mind games.
When asked if being paired with Chelsea in the FA Cup Quarter Final and a trip to Stamford Bridge, Jose responded in typical fashion.
Our Game: Was f*cking awful. Begovic, Zouma, Ake, JT, Fabregas and Chalobah retained the chance to start in the cup run after the last round, whilst Ruben and Michy dropped onto bench.
Having rejected a possible move to China in favour of staying at Chelsea, it now seems (according to reports) that Diego Costa is set to sign a new five-year contract worth a staggering £220,00 per week.
Just to point out that I state that he rejected a move to China but I think we can all agree that he had little choice with the club not being prepared to negotiate a move away from Stamford Bridge.
Michael Owen has been featured in a new documentary that focuses on the art of scoring goals and has given an opinion of Didier Drogba that I wondered if you, the football fan reading this post agrees?
We have seen plenty of legendary goalscorers in the Premier League throughout it's existence and in particular those that played here before Drogba's arrival.
Gary Cahill has challenged his Chelsea team mates to kick on in the next five Premier League games to take a giant step towards the Premier League title.
Despite dropping two points away to Burnley, which could still turn out to be a good result, Chelsea extended their advantage over most of their rivals with only Manchester City taking full advantage beating Bournemouth, closing the gap to eight points behind us as they moved into second place in the Premier League.
Chelsea dropped two points with a draw at Burnley this afternoon and being honest simply did not deserve to win the game as we did not create enough.
Heading into the game on paper, Chelsea were outright favourites to win the game despite Burnley's excellent record at home. Antonio Conte decided to stick with the same team that started against Arsenal which was a surprise as I personally saw this one as a chance for Cesc Fabregas to start.
Cesc Fabregas has given an interview to Chelsea TV and has raised a point for debate. He has stated that these days, it's more difficult for talented players to succeed in the game. Do you agree?
For me personally, Cesc Fabregas is the perfect example of a player who finds himself in exactly that situation this season having given way to Nemanja Matic and N'Golo Kante in the heart of Chelsea's midfield under Antonio Conte.
Antonio Conte has been speaking ahead of Chelsea's trip to Burnley on Sunday afternoon and has urged his players to focus on themselves and maintain his sides current momentum.
In recent weeks Chelsea have faced Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal and have come away with just four points from those games which in any other season would be trouble.
N'Golo Kante delivered another sensational performance against Arsenal following on from the previous outstanding performance against Liverpool. Is he better than Claude Makelele?
It sounds a ridiculous question doesn't it based on the fact that Makelele had a tactical position on the pitch named after him but it's a question that deserves merit based on how good our summer signing has been.
If Chelsea win the Premier League this season, Antonio Conte's side will not receive the recognition they would deserve because they have not had to play any European Football this season.
We hear Pundits on TV all the time harp on and on about how Chelsea are fresh, have time to prepare for games at the weekends properly and should be fitter and stronger than other teams who play in Europe this season.
