Antonio Conte

Chelsea visit Qarabag on Wednesday evening in the next leg of our Champions League group stage campaign.

The Blues had made light work of group C up until their clashes with Serie A giants AS Roma. Only the genius of Eden Hazard prevented the Premier League champions being left red-faced in front of their home supporters, after they threw away a two-goal lead to trail 3-2.

After rescuing a draw in West London, we headed to Rome – and the less said about that game the better. The gulf in quality was evident. Antonio Conte’s side were played off the park and subsequently suffered a 3-0 defeat.

This fixture against Qarabag is the dictionary definition of a must-win game. Despite this, it seems like that Conte will shuffle his pack in order to avoid key players becoming fatigued.

The likes of David Luiz, Danny Drinkwater and Pedro could all return to the starting side tomorrow evening. Here’s how we predict Conte will lineup his Chelsea side.
