Predicting Chelsea’s starting eleven has proven difficult under Maurizio Sarri – we’ve only got three right so far this season.
We won’t be discouraged, though. No matter how many times he changes the occupier of the third midfield position, or who’s running the right channel in attack, we shall persevere.
As mentioned in our injury report, Alvaro Morata is a major doubt for today’s game after he injured his knee on Thursday night. We expect Sarri to stick with Eden Hazard through the middle, rather than granting an opportunity to Olivier Giroud.
Mateo Kovacic faces a late fitness test before his availability can be determined. Regardless of his fitness, Ruben Loftus-Cheek deserves to start and we back him to do so today.
The rest of the team picks itself, with the starting eleven looking something like this. What do you think, Blues? Have we got it right? Let us know @TalkChelsea, where you can also follow our coverage of today’s game.
