Chelsea defeated Brighton 4-0 at the weekend to move above Liverpool in the Premier League. Next up, the Blues will collide against Arsenal in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi final.
The first leg ended in a 0-0 stalemate at Stamford Bridge. Who will come out on top tomorrow night at the Emirates?
As far as Conte’s team news is concerned, Christensen suffered a head injury in the last game and could be out of the contest vs the Gunners. On the other hand, senior center half Gary Cahill is out with a hamstring injury (Physio Room).
In such a scenario, the likes of Luiz, Rudiger and Azpilicueta will probably start in the back line for Chelsea in front of Belgian shot stopper Courtois.
Moses and Alonso should start in the wing-back positions. As far as the central midfield is concerned, Fabregas and Drinkwater are injured at the moment and therefore, we can expect Bakayoko and Kante to start again.
Pedro and Morata were suspended at the weekend but they are available now and the Spanish duo should return to the starting team and line up with Hazard in the attack. Here is Chelsea’s strongest possible 3-4-3 XI vs Arsenal.
