Chelsea will look to make it three wins on the bounce when they take on Leicester City at the King Power on Saturday afternoon.
Here is the side we think Antonio Conte will pick for the game:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois is certain to keep his place between the sticks this weekend unless he picks up a late injury.
Defence: Conte will continue to be without skipper Gary Cahill as he completes his three-game ban so Antonio Rudiger should continue at the back.
I think we’ll see Conte stick with the defence that helped secure a 2-0 win over Everton before the international break so Cesar Azpilicueta should continue alongside David Luiz with Andreas Christensen among the substitutes.
Midfield: Tiemoue Bakayoko is pushing for a recall as he’s now considered to be 100% match fit following his knee injury so Cesc Fabregas could make way for the Frenchman this weekend.
N’Golo Kante is certain to keep his place in the middle of the park while Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses are expected to once again start in the full-back positions.
Midfielder Danny Drinkwater and full-back Davide Zappacosta completed moves to Stamford Bridge on deadline day but places on the bench are probably the best they can hope for on Saturday.
Attack: Eden Hazard is back in contention after recovering from a broken foot so the Belgian international is expected to come back in to the attack this weekend.
Willian is the man most likely to make way after enduring a long-haul trip back from South America following his exploits for Brazil so Pedro should keep his place.
Alvaro Morata is also expected to lead the line up front once again with Michy Batshuayi among the subs but Diego Costa won’t be involved as he’s still refusing to return to London from his exile in Brazil.
