Chelsea suffered their fourth league defeat of the season, second at Stamford Bridge, when Crystal Palace bounced back from a goal down to beat the league leaders at the weekend.
The Blues will collide against Manchester City tonight. Earlier in the season, Conte’s men defeated the Sky Blues but both teams were penalized for failing to control their players. Who will come out on top this time around?
As far as Chelsea’s team news is concerned, in the absence of Moses, the Italian boss started a 3-5-2 formation in the last game and ended up losing the clash. He will most likely utilize his preferred 3-4-3 formation vs Pep Guardiola’s team.
There are doubts about Moses’ fitness and it will not come as any surprise if the Nigerian international misses this game as well. We can expect Willian to return to the starting XI and play in the right wing back position.
Matic may move to the bench and the likes of Kante and Cesc should start in the central midfield.
Here is Conte’s probable 3-4-3 XI vs Man City.
