POTENTIAL STARTING LINE-UP
Should Chelsea recall David Luiz or continue playing Andreas Christensen? That is the biggest question that Conte faces after the youngster impressed versus Manchester United as Luiz was left out.
Chelsea have Antonio Rudiger vying for a place against Gary Cahill, while Davide Zappacosta may continue at right wing back in Moses’ absence. Alvaro Morata, Eden Hazard and Pedro have emerged as first choice front three but they will only line up together if Conte chooses to play in a 3-4-3 system.
Conte may also look at using the 3-5-2 formation that most recently saw the Blues beat Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. Cesc Fabregas joined Kante and Bakayoko in a three man midfield.
Kante will undoubtedly continue his recovery from injury against West Brom.
