Chelsea face Qarabag in the Champions League group stage on Tuesday night, and it seems likely that Antonio Conte will chop and change.
With the busy schedule that lies ahead, Conte will need his key players to be fresh if the Blues want to remain in contention on all fronts going forward. The first hurdle for Chelsea to overcome is the Champions League clash against Qarabag, but in all honesty, that shouldn’t be too difficult for the star-studded Premier League champions.
The likes of Alvaro Morata have appeared in all of Chelsea’s games so far, as well as featuring for their country on international duty. He could certainly do with a rest, and Michy Batshuayi is able to provide quality in reserve.
Andreas Christensen could be given an opportunity from the beginning having impressed against Tottenham at Wembley. Davide Zappacosta may make his first Chelsea start in order to give Victor Moses’ legs a rest. Gary Cahill is also available again having missed three Premier League games through suspension.
Here’s how TalkChelsea predict that Chelsea will lineup on Tuesday night. Do you agree with our selection?
