Antonio Conte spoke to the assembled media in his pre-match press conference yesterday and when asked if he he would make any changes to the side that beat Leicester last weekend he offered no clues if he would.
As you can imagine, any changes to incorporate Diego Costa's return to the side after injury would be harsh on the players who put in a fantastic performance.
David Luiz has been speaking to the Chelsea Magazine this week and has revealed the reason why he decided to return to Chelsea. Could this second spell under Antonio Conte finally change opinions of our much-maligned Defender?
If we are honest, it was a total shock that David Luiz decided to leave Paris Saint Germain first and foremost but to come back to Chelsea was an even bigger surprise having left three seasons ago.
Diego Costa will be the focus of the attention in the build up to the game this afternoon against Hull City and Antonio Conte has re-iterated his focus is on Chelsea and heaped praise on our top scorer.
What a difference a week makes in football. Last week, Costa was left out of the squad that travelled to Leicester with an official explanation being because of a back injury.
Antonio Conte decided to take up the option to recall defender Nathan Ake from his loan spell at Bournemouth this past weekend. Do you think he will feature for Chelsea before the end of the season? I have to be very honest and say that I was as surprised as anyone when the news broke that Ake was to leave Bournemouth and return to Chelsea early.
In the 85th minute against Stoke on Saturday, Diego Costa created a sublime goal from nothing, scored with a predators venom and stands out as the player of the season so far.
Diego Costa has been speaking to Chelsea TV in recent days and has spoken of plenty of things from possibly leaving the club back in the summer, the Manager and of changing his style this season and it's really interesting to hear.
Cesc Fabregas stepped into the Chelsea side to replace Nemanja Matic for his first start in nine weeks and played a huge part in Chelsea's fightback against Manchester City.
I have to be honest here, when the team was announced and Fabregas was named in the starting eleven playing alongside N'Golo Kante in the heart of our Midfield, I was concerned as my Tweet sent out to the #CFC fans across the world would have seen below:
When Antonio Conte took charge of Chelsea and dropped points at Swansea before losing to both Liverpool and Arsenal within his first six games, almost everyone in the football world wrote him off. With perennial rivals storming ahead in the Premier League and losses a rarity in the top five, Conte looked almost dead and buried before he'd even got going.
Victor Moses has proven to be an integral part of Chelsea's recent success having adopted Antonio Conte's 3-4-3 formation. The Chelsea boss has admitted that he finds it hard to believe that he had previously been overlooked at Chelsea.
If we take a step back in time looking back at the last two or three pre-season campaigns at the club, Victor Moses has arguably been our best player.
After a bitterly disappointing 2015/16 season that saw Chelsea finish 10th in the Premier League and miss out on Champions League football for the first time in 13 seasons, the recently appointed Antonio Conte has changed the team dynamic has the team poised to make a Premier League title challenge.
Ex-Chelsea Striker Tony Cascarino has played down Chelsea's performance on Saturday night claiming that Everton were really poor, he also believes we would struggle against Liverpool and Manchester City.
Football is a game of opinions with the majority of influential opinion being of ex-players who have forged a career as a TV Pundit.
Victor Moses has been a revelation for Antonio Conte's Chelsea team as a Wing Back. The 25-year old has revealed just how much he is enjoying his new role.
It's fair to say that Moses has not had things easy since he signed for Chelsea back in 2012 from Wigan. Moses spent that first year in and around the team making 23 appearances for the club and things looked promising for him, however that all changed and he spent the following three seasons out on loan at Liverpool, Stoke City and then last season at West Ham.
Chelsea's Saturday night performance against Everton has been described by plenty of Football Pundits and Newspaper Reporters as being on of the best they have seen. Jamie Redknapp has paid Antonio Conte and his team an unexpected compliment.
Chelsea look to have the perfect balance as they look to keep things tight at the back whilst carrying a potent attacking threat.
Much has been made of the defensive stability Chelsea have demonstrated since the decision was made to switch formation to 3-4-3. One thing is clear, Chelsea are now defending together as one.
Antonio Conte has received plenty of plaudits in recent weeks and it's a credit to him. As he prepares his rejuvenated Chelsea team to take on Everton at Stamford Bridge tomorrow, there has been one aspect of this four match unbeaten run that stands out for me and that's teamwork.
West Ham beat Chelsea 2-1 a week ago in the EFL Cup and I ask the question if the exit has shut the door for our youngster this season?
As Antonio Conte and his technical team prepared their plans for this season back in the summer, it would become clear that the EFL (League) Cup was the ideal opportunity to give the likes of Ola Aina, Nathaniel Chalobah, Ruben Loftus Cheek and Dominic Solanke some first team action.
As Chelsea prepare for Manchester United and Jose Mourinho this weekend, there has been plenty of debate over Antonio Conte's decision to switch to a 3-4-3 formation. I ask the question, "Is it here to stay?"
Chelsea have only played two games against Hull City and Leicester City with the using the new approach but it's been so far, so good with two wins, six points and two clean sheets.
With reports this past summer that PSG were more than interested in his services, Willian has distanced himself from any possible move away from Chelsea and has expressed a willingness to extend his contract to finish his career here.
That is fantastic news in my opinion as if you look at his performances overall for the club since he arrived, he has been outstanding.
Gianfranco Zola believes that Antonio Conte and Chelsea have a chance to record two statement victories against Leicester and Manchester United to put our season back on track after setbacks against Liverpool and Arsenal.
Without question, Chelsea head into these two fixtures as must win games this early in the season and that's purely because of our two previous defeats.
Tammy Abraham is on fire so far this season as he netted twice for England Under 21's on his debut following his blistering start at Bristol City on loan. Speaking after his debut he revealed the feedback he receives from Chelsea.
Plenty is made of Chelsea's Loan policy at the moment and as we all know in recent years, whether you agree with it or disagree it's a decision made that we cannot do anything about and we have to live with it.
Tammy Abraham has taken the Championship by storm ever since his arrival at Bristol City this season and many consider the Chelsea youngster as ready to make the step up to Chelsea's first team squad next year.
Abraham continued his rich vein of goal scoring form this past weekend as Bristol City came back from a goal down to beat Nottingham Forest 2-1.
Lucas Piazon, one of the hottest young properties in world football five years ago when he signed for Chelsea, has finally spoken out about being farmed out on loan ever since he joined the club. Make no mistake it's music to the ears of the press.
Everyone in the country has a view on Chelsea and I would say the majority of it isn't positive.
Chelsea's Transfer Deadline Day signing of David Luiz has caused a stir in the press and a pundits alike. Many have spoken out and their opinions are hardly positive. As a Chelsea fan reading this post where do you stand?
At the moment I am reading all sorts of rubbish in the press about Luiz.
What are the key characteristics that drive on a Premier League title winning team? If we take a look at the rollcall of the most recent champions, a cocktail of quality (obviously), luck (in avoiding injuries to key players) and psychology (in maintaining/finding form) seem to be the most obvious factors.
Having received plenty of plaudits for the way Chelsea are playing in our new 3-4-3 formation, one Sunday Times Journalist has claimed that Chelsea are playing better than title favourites Manchester City in these last five games.
It's still early days in the title race and being totally honest, I would be happy to accept a top four position right now if it was offered to me, so it's stupid to make any sort of predictions.
Much has been made of Eden Hazard's form two years ago to the nightmare of last season. Is the form he is showing now the best we have ever seen from him at Chelsea?
Two seasons ago Eden Hazard was named as the Premier League Player of the Year and rightly so. He was outstanding in our title winning season scoring nineteen goals in fifty-two appearances in all competitions.
David Luiz has received plaudits for his recent performances playing in the middle of Antonio Conte's new back three.
When David Luiz signed for Chelsea on transfer deadline day back in August, everyone had an opinion of him. Those without blue-tinted glasses laughed and slated us for re-signing a player deemed as too unreliable or too wayward for being a successful defender in the Premier League.
Chelsea are currently on a sensational run of form with twelve wins from twelve games and Eden Hazard believes this is the best Chelsea team he has played in. I'm asking if you agree?
Our current run of form has been breathtaking, conceding just two goals while scoring twenty-eight and has taken us to the top of the Premier League and we currently sit six points clear of second placed Liverpool.
Twenty years ago today on the 8th November 1996, Chelsea signed a 30-year old Gianfranco Zola from Parma for a fee of £4.5m and changed Chelsea forever.
We talk these days of players who make an impact in games, players who have the ability to produce a moment of magic to inspire or to turn a game on it's head; Zola was one of those players in that era.
The title of this article says it all really – we reckon Victor Moses is a better player than Manchester United's world-record signing Paul Pogba. Before this season, even the most diehard Blues fans and footballtipsters would have laughed at the suggestion. But Moses' form this season tells a different story.
It's now official. As of Sunday afternoon, Manchester have now made their worst ever start to a Premier League campaign and the statistics therein are most definitely of the 'damning' variety.
The point garnered from the fractious 1-1 draw with West Ham was only United's 20th of the season so far which, after 13 games, is what you might call fairly meagre especially for a vastly expensive team with designs on winning the title.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek has hailed Antonio Conte despite calls for him to move out on loan by many Chelsea fans urging him to continue his development with regular first team football.
I for one have featured RLC on here in recent weeks as reports had previously appeared stating that Slaven Bilic was interested in taking him on loan to West Ham, having made just four appearances in all competitions this season so far.
None of us want to look back and think about last season, that we can all agree on but I felt that I need to write a post about some interviews given by Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard who both have opened up to what happened last season which makes pretty interesting reading.
It's a situation that happened that no-one has a single answer or reason as to what went wrong!
Hating Jurgen Klinsmann is so common, it's passe. A GenXer columnist would write "it's jumped the shark" and millenials would mock that columnist just for writing that trite expression. Even fedora-wearing creative types in Williamsburg have gotten over the Jurgen hate. Still, your hate fascinates me for different reasons: not because it is novel, or even very logical it's not.
