Chelsea boss Antonio Conte named the same starting lineup that defeated Manchester United just before the international break.

Speaking about his choice of team selection, Conte said after the game: “We had lots of problems at the beginning, Hazard was one of those problems, he had a bad injury and played with us after 6 or 7 games. The starting XI was the same as the last game.

“Against Manchester United we played a really good game, we performed very well with the same players.

“We have to play a lot of games in the same way. We are in a good physical condition, Moses is progressing well. I hope to have him back from tomorrow and could have him after the Qarabag game.”

This team played a good game for the second time in a row and the 3-5-2 formation might just be the way forward for the team this season.
