Chelsea will look to put one foot in the knockout stages of the Champions League when they take on AS Roma at Stamford Bridge this evening.

Antonio Conte has been handed a major boost with Alvaro Morata passed fit to return after recovering from a hamstring injury that kept him out of the Crystal Palace game last time out.

With N’Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater injured, Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayoko appear to be joined by David Luiz in midfield with Andreas Christensen lining-up at the back alongside Cesar Azpilicueta and Gary Cahill.

Eden Hazard keeps his place in attack with the likes of Pedro, Willian and Michy Batshuayi on the bench. Davide Zappacosta replaces the injured Victor Moses in the right wing-back role.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Chelsea

Courtois, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill (c), David Luiz, Zappacosta, Bakayoko, Fabregas, Alonso, Hazard, Morata.

Subs: Caballero, Rudiger, Scott, Kenedy, Pedro, Batshuayi, Willian

Roma
