Chelsea play Arsenal on Wednesday and Antonio Conte made a number of changes to his squad today ahead of the derby clash.

The Chelsea boss chose to rest Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Andreas Christensen against Stoke, and the Blues were dominant and won the game 5-0.

Conte was happy that his rotation worked, and he said after the game: “I’m very happy because today I had a good response from all of my players.

“I made rotation and when you have this kind of response you must be pleased and know you are working well with the players who play regularly and those who don’t.”
