The Blues are set to play in Conte’s favoured (1)3-4-2-1 formation. Caballero could play in goal this time, due to Courtois being injured. The defensive line of 3 in front of him could include Azpilicueta, Cahill and Rudiger. Antonio Conte has confirmed that Christensen will not feature against Watford this week. Moses could play as the right wing-back, with Alonso as left-wing back. Kante and Fabregas could pair up in central midfield, as Kante stays back with the defence whilst Fabregas gets forward to join the attack. Willian could play with Pedro as the attackers playing behind Hazard, as the striker. Pedro looked very sharp last time out, although Chelsea still couldn’t penetrate the Bournemouth backline.
Azpilicueta – Cahill – Rudiger
Moses – Fabregas – Kante – Alonso
