Chelsea FC vs Peterborough United - Zouma and Batshuayi set for Chelsea starts

Posted Friday, January 06, 2017 by PA

Kurt Zouma and Michy Batshuayi are set to start for Chelsea in Sunday's FA Cup third-round clash with Peterborough.

Defender Zouma is fit to return following a long-term knee injury, while striker Batshuayi has had limited opportunities since signing from Marseille last summer.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is to rotate his team after Tottenham ended a 13-game winning run in the Premier League on Wednesday night, with club captain John Terry also a potential starter.

Peterborough manager Grant McCann has no fresh injury concerns as they travel to Stamford Bridge.

Recent signings Martin Samuelsen and Dominic Ball are both eligible to play but McCann will not make his final squad decisions until Saturday.

New striker Junior Morias, who Posh signed from St Albans in December, is unable to play as he is cup-tied.

Peterborough are unbeaten in seven games in all competitions.
