Chelsea boss Antonio Conte named a starting line-up without N’Golo Kante for Chelsea’s game against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

The France international is sidelined due to illness and in his stead, Cesc Fabregas partners Danny Drinkwater in midfield.

Conte also dropped Alvaro Morata to the bench after the 2-1 defeat to Manchester United last Sunday as Eden Hazard starts as a false nine and is flanked by Willian and Pedro.

Morata and Olivier Giroud have been named as substitutes.

See Chelsea’s line-up for the all important game.

Chelsea team: Courtois; Azpilicueta (c), Christensen, Rudiger; Moses, Fabregas, Drinkwater, Alonso; Willian, Hazard, Pedro.

Subs: Caballero, Cahill, Zappacosta, Emerson, Chalobah, Giroud, Morata.
