The blues are still on the top of the table after Newcastle defeat. They are three points clear of competitor Manchester City and will be looking to extend the lead when the Tigers visit the capital.
Goalkeeper Petr Cech will make his first Barclays Premier League start of the season against Hull on Saturday after Thibaut Courtois suffered a minor injury in training.
Mourinho would have struggled to ask for a better opponent to return to form, with the pressure on Hull manager Steve Bruce having seen his side score just twice in the last six games.
For the first time in 18 months, Tigers are sitting much less comfortably than their opponents and dropped into the relegation zone after their 0–0 draw at home to West Bromwich last Saturday.
The Tigers have never won away against Chelsea in any competition. Blues are unbeaten in their last 10 matches against Hull in all competitions.
