It’s been one hell of a weekend for Blues supporters after a traumatic defeat against Crystal Palace last weekend. An act of redemption is badly needed to salvage our season and the Champions League gives Conte and the players an opportunity to right their wrongs.

Up next is Roma, and here are 3 changes to the starting lineup that could benefit Chelsea:

 

LUIZ FOR FABREGAS:

The obvious truth is that Chelsea are a more solid and balanced team with a double pivot midfield of complimentary defensive midfielders. In view of this, for all of Fabregas attacking intelligence, his lack of defensive nous is more of a weakness rather than strength in Chelsea’s tactical play. The contest with Roma is bound to be physical and tactical, and so we will need a player in a perfect mould of a midfield combatant. In the absence of Kante, Conte’s next choice to partner Bakayoko should be David Luiz.

 

PEDRO FOR WILLIAN:

The Spaniard was one of Chelsea’s most outstanding players last season and even edged Willian out from the side. But Conte’s preference of Willian this season has failed to yield results. The Brazilian’s form and fitness has been scrutinized in recent games after some poor displays this term. He clearly looks a shadow of the player that was Chelsea’s best player two seasons ago. With little to suggest that the Brazilian has turned a corner, Conte needs to give Pedro the chance to show the stuff he’s made of against Roma.

 

MORATA FOR BATSHUAYI:

For all the talks about Conte’s distrust in Batshuayi, it was justified the more by the Belgian striker’s insipid display against Palace. His movement and positional play are reminiscent of s striker playing non-league football. His displays only helped to give Conte reasons to keep using him from the bench. Crucially, Morata’s return to training and contention for match action is a timely boost as certainly he should reclaim his place in the starting lineup.

  1. I’m really appreciating the changes our manager Mr Conte would like to make in the line up. The only thing I want to say is, when the system of 3-4-3 fail to give us the best results tonight it will be better if Conte eliminate it and shift to 4-2-3-1, whereby 27&2 will be his center back and use Luiz in midfield and fabregas should partner Pedro and hazard in the attacking position, besides I think it will also be better if cahil be on benches for rudiger and willian for musonda

  2. Zappacosta should start Willian bench Pedro start cahil bench Rudiger start Christensen start Luiz partner Bakayoko or fabregas

  3. Rudiger for cahil please..

  4. Cahill, Willian, michy Out morata,Rudiger,Pedro In

  5. Lets loan Michy out, try and get Cavani this January, it is pretty clear that the player is disgruntled at PSG.

    i suggest David Luis, Azpilicueta, Cahill at the back, Zappacosta, Fabregas, Bakayoko, Alonso in midfield and Hazard, Morata, Pedro ahead. this is the best squat to beat any team

  7. Bench bakayoko devid Luis & pedro 4 willin
