Conte To Start 2 New Signings: Predicted Chelsea Line-Up vs Burnley

By on August 10, 2017

Chelsea will begin the defence of their Premier League title when they take on Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Here is the side we think Antonio Conte will pick for the game:

Goalkeeper: Willy Caballero has arrived on a free transfer from Manchester City this summer but he’s only been signed as back-up to Thibaut Courtois so the Belgian No.1 will retain the gloves on Saturday.

Defence: Conte is set to hand a competitive debut to Antonio Rudiger following his summer move as the German international is expected to line-up in defence this weekend.

Gary Cahill should skipper the side while the back three will be made up by David Luiz with the Brazilian international once again lining-up in the middle of defence.

Midfield: Victor Moses is suspended after being sent off in the FA Cup last season so Cesar Azpilicueta is set to be moved out in to the wing-back position against Burnley.

Conte is yet to sign another left-back so Marcos Alonso should continue in his wing-back role this weekend while N’Golo Kante is also a guaranteed starter in the middle of the park.

Summer signing Tiemoue Bakayoko isn’t under consideration just yet as he’s still working his way back to full fitness from a knee injury so Cesc Fabregas should start in midfield following Nemanja Matic’s move to Man Utd.

Attack: Alvaro Morata could be handed his competitive debut this weekend. The Spaniard has been eased in to things by Conte following his big money move from Real Madrid but the Blues boss has hinted he’s now ready to start after getting a good weeks training under his belt.

Michy Batshuayi will feel unfortunate to drop out as he’s impressed in pre-season but the Belgian international will be a very useful weapon to have from the bench.

Eden Hazard has been ruled out with an ankle injury that he suffered while on international duty this summer so Willian should join Pedro in the attack.

Diego Costa isn’t available for selection as he continues to look for a move out of Stamford Bridge after being exiled from the squad.

Here is how we think Chelsea will line-up:

    Iam with the view tht its tym Eminalo to be sacked frm Chelsea board, because he is the problem when it comes to transfers, he is very slow to act, hw do u talk abt a player the manager told u to get, almost a month, then another team comes frm no where and buys tht play?eg Lukaku, Aurier, ad selling Matic without manager concern

    Chelsea can win again but the Coach needs to be fear in selections, if only he plays 3-5-2, Chelsea will be better.

    am in anticipation mood can’t wait to see you Guy’s in action we lack attacking impetus against arsenal due to the fact that willian cum Pedro fail to produced the quality required by their standard u don’t want to be loquacious to our director as my fellow country man but he need to improve his method of approach in handling Chelsea transfer activities.

    Chelsea is the best club so far, I love you guys, but Eminalo, please leave Chelsea alone if you want Chelsea to progress.
