Sky Sports will broadcast the final Premier League game of the weekend this evening as Chelsea host Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues had to work hard for a 1-0 victory when the sides met in November, with Diego Costa scoring the goal, but it would be a major upset if the Londoners were to fail to claim three points once again.
Their local and Premier League rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, lost to West Ham United on Friday evening, which means a win here today sees the Blues go seven points clear at the top of the table.
Chelsea have won seven successive meetings without conceding a goal, including the last six Premier League encounters. Middlesbrough have gone 18 league matches without a victory at Stamford Bridge since a 2-1 top-flight triumph in March 1975.
The Monday Night Football starts at 7.00pm on Sky Sports 1 with live streaming on Now TV and Sky Go. Kick-off 8.00pm.
Highlights will be shown on a special edition of Match of the Day from 10.45pm on BBC One this evening.
