Chelsea will look to take another huge step towards reclaiming the Premier League title when they take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Here is the team I think Antonio Conte will pick for the game:

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois is Conte’s established number one and he’s certain to keep his place on Sunday as long as he doesn’t suffer a last minute injury.

Defence: Conte reverted to his preferred back three against Bournemouth last weekend after handing Kurt Zouma a rare start against Manchester City but I don’t think we’ll see any changes on Sunday.

Therefore, I expect we’ll see Cesar Azpilicueta continue alongside Gary Cahill and David Luiz at the back with the likes of Zouma and John Terry on the bench.

Midfield: Victor Moses made a successful comeback last weekend having recovered from a toe injury so the Nigerian international should continue in the right wing-back position.

Cesc Fabregas is pushing for a recall after being named on the bench against the Cherries last time out but Conte may want to stick with a more defensive approach for this tough away game so I think the 29-year-old may have to make do with a substitute role again on Sunday.

That would see Nemanja Matic continue alongside N’Golo Kante against United while Marcos Alonso will once again start on the left after scoring a superb free-kick during the 3-1 win over Bournemouth last weekend.

Attack: Eden Hazard continued his fine form with another goal last time out and he’s certain to keep his place in attack while Pedro should get the nod ahead of Willian to support the Belgian international.

Diego Costa is going through a bit of a rough patch in front of goal but he’ll keep his place in the side and will be looking to get back among the goals on Sunday.

Here is how we think Chelsea will line-up:
