CM - Lewis Miley: The highlight of the Premier League match at the weekend was seeing the young lad Lewis Miley get on the score sheet. It was undoubtedly a goal which reconnected the fanbase and reminded us the core values of this great club. Surely the young lad will start against Chelsea as he's one of our most in-form players currently.

CM - Bruno Guimaraes: Bruno G has really stepped up this absence to paper over the injury cracks. He is a valuable member of the team and he's often the person to step up in big games like this, Howe will certainly call on him to prosper in this weekend's fixture.

CM - Sean Longstaff: It's great to have Longstaff back and available again, as I'm certain he will be started in this match. Particularly given the Joelinton injury, Howe has to start the unique midfielder as he can contribute a lot to the midfield play and would complete the perfect balanced trio alongside Bruno and Miley.
