José Mourinho will be expecting to win his first Premier League game back in charge of Chelsea. They open their campaign against newly-promoted Hull City on Sunday, and should take three points from a side looking to just survive relegation this season.
However, the Blues come into the game with fitness concerns over important first team players. Frank Lampard, David Luiz, Juan Mata and summer arrival André Schürrle aren't yet at 100%, though are still expected to be involved in some capacity. Midfielder Marco van Ginkel, who arrived from Vitesse last month, is likely to make his Chelsea debut.
Hull City only have one injury problem, with midfielder Stephen Quinn unavailable with a hamstring injury. Manager Steve Bruce will likely hand competitive debuts to Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone this weekend, while Sunderland loanee striker Danny Graham, goalkeeper Allan McGregor and defender Maynor Figueroa could also make their first appearances for the Tigers.
