The Blues are willing to get back to winning ways and Frank Lampard is yet to decide whether to start defender Fikayo Tomori against their London rival Tottenham.
Chelsea have tread a bumpy path over the last few month, they have lost three of their last four matches to Everton, West Ham and Bournemouth.
On the other hand, Tottenham have been impressive under Jose Mourinho.
Should Jose Mourinho secure a win, Tottenham will go into fourth place, currently retained by Chelsea.
A win over Tottenham will give Chelsea a big boost ahead of a hectic Christmas schedule.
For Chelsea, Kepa will start as the goal keeper while Antonio Rudiger and Kurt Zouma will start at the defence.

Frank Lampard has confirmed that Fikayo Tomori is fit to play, but he could start from the bench.
Frank Lampard have this to say:
“Ross if fine. Tomori is fine. Giroud is fine. They’re all fine, I think.”
In our opinion, it’s likely that Emerson will partner captain Cesar Azpilicueta on the opposite wing side.
In Chelsea’s midfield, Frank Lampard will start Jorginho, while N’Golo Kante plays advance alongside Mateo Kovacic.
Frank Lampard also revealed that Ruben Loftus-Cheek is making progress from the injury he sustained.
“Loftus-Cheek is making good progress, which is really positive, but nowhere near contention for match play,” he added.
“Other than that, we have a fit squad. Nice selection problems.”
In Chelsea’s front three, Tammy Abraham will take the striking role and to his left could be Christian Pulisic, and on his right will be Willian.
Chelsea predicted XI vs Tottenham
Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Zouma, Emerson; Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic; Willian, Politic, Abraham.
