Chelsea have no fresh fitness concerns for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash at Hull.

The blues can go top if they win - for at least a few hours.

Kevin De Bruyne is unlikely to be included after negotiations for the Belgium forward's Chelsea exit gathered pace.

Midfielder Frank Lampard (calf) and right-back Branislav Ivanovic (knee) are out until the end of the month, while Marco van Ginkel (knee) is continuing his rehabilitation.

Provisional squad: Cech, Cole, Luiz, Essien, Ramires, Torres, Mata, Oscar, Mikel, Schurrle, De Bruyne, Hazard, Ba, Willian, Schwarzer, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Eto'o, Blackman, Bertrand.
