Team News: Petr Cech absent for Chelsea

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is without regular goalkeeper Petr Cech in today's Premier League clash against Sunderland.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is without regular goalkeeper Petr Cech in today's Premier League clash against Sunderland, the Portuguese opting for Mark Schwarzer in the starting XI and Hilario on the bench.

Eden Hazard remains on the sidelines after missing last week's win against Swansea City, as Samuel Eto'o and Oscar come back into the Chelsea starting lineup.

Mourinho's side still haven't lost at home in the league in either of his two spells - 77 games and counting - and have the best home record in the Premier League this season, winning 15 and drawing two.

Sunderland have named an unchanged side from their midweek draw at Manchester City.

Phil Bardsley is still suspended and is joined on the sidelines by Ki Sung-yeung, who has tendonitis.

Sunderland are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League, six points from safety with a game in hand on the three sides immediately above them.

Chelsea: Schwarzer; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Ramires, Matic; Willian, Oscar, Salah; Eto'o
Subs: Hilario, David Luiz, Mikel, Lampard, Torres, Schurrle, Ba

Sunderland: Mannone; Vergini, Alonso, Brown, O'Shea; Cattermole, Colback, Larsson, Johnson; Borini, Wickham
Subs: Celustka, Altidore, Ba, Giaccherini, Scocco, Mavrias, Ustari
