Chelsea and Liverpool are set to go head-to-head at Stamford Bridge tomorrow in a crunch clash in the Premier League title race. 

The Blues go into the game after a hard fought 1-0 victory over Swansea City in their last fixture, meanwhile Liverpool travel to stamford Bridge after an unfortunate defeat to Manchester City on Boxing Day. 

And after Jose Mourinho's side only played a couple of days ago, the Portuguese tactician may now make a number of changes as his side prepare to host Brendan Rodgers' high flyers. 

There won't be any messing around in the goalkeeping position as the reliable Petr Cech looks set to start for the Blues tomorrow afternoon. 

And in-front of him, he could see the likes of Gary Cahil and Cesar Azpilicueta return to the side as they play along side Branislav Ivanovic and John Terry. 

With Ramires suspended having picked up his fifth yellow card of the season, the Blues could turn to Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel to partner one another in the centre of midfield.

That will free up the likes of Andre Schurrle, Oscar and Hazard who could all play in the role behind the lone striker.

Juan Mata, who played for the Blues against Swansea, looks set to drop out of the team and Willian may have to deal with a place on the bench.

In attack, Jose Mourinho may give Spaniard Fernando Torres a place in the starting XI against his former club.

Chelsea will be desperate to secure all three points as they look to continue their Premier League title charge. 

Chelsea: Potential XI - Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Lampard, Mikel, Schurrle, Oscar, Hazard; Torres
