Guus Hiddink says he does not plan to make major changes for Chelsea’s game against relegation-threatened Sunderland on Saturday.
The Blues interim boss named an experienced line-up for Monday’s clash with Tottenham, having involved youngsters in previous matches.
And he intends to field a similarly experienced side against a Sunderland team involved in a battle against the drop with Norwich and local rivals Newcastle.
Hiddink explained: “Given the situation, it wouldn’t be fair of us to have a serious approach for the Spurs game and not have a serious approach for the other games.
“I am not going to change a lot in the team. Before, I made some changes with academy players, but it would not be fair to do this again to the other teams in the last games.”
