Chelsea's Twitter Account Trolled After Releasing Starting Line-Up To Face Spurs

Brazilian winger Willian replaces Hazard, while a rare Michy Batshuayi start has again stumped many Chelsea fans.

Chelsea side to face Tottenham:

Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Ake; Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso; Willian, Batshuayi, Pedro

Lloris; Trippier, Dier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen; Wanyama, Dembele; Son, Eriksen, Dele; Kane
