Predicted Chelsea lineup against Tottenham: Unchanged, unsurprising, unconcerning

Same old, same old.  Three. Four. Three. Wins. Goals. Clean sheets. Boring, boring Chelsea.

Once again, we should expect Chelsea to line up exactly as in the previous five league games.  With no new injuries of note, Conte shall once again put his trust in the same lineup that has served him so well.  Presumably he will continue doing so until the lineup fails to produce the necessary three points expected of it.

How long can this lineup produce the three points?  Well, that's a question for another day.

3-4-3
Courtois | Cahill, David Luiz, Azpilicueta | Alonso, Matić, Kanté, Moses | Hazard, Costa, Pedro

Unsurprisingly, given the winning streak and the generally scintillating football on display, the WAGNH community also overwhelmingly favors staying with what's been working.  Even Pedro's now garnering almost 80% of the vote, whereas earlier it was a much closer contest between him and Willian.

3-4-3
Courtois (97%) | Cahill (91%), David Luiz (99%), Azpilicueta (98%) | Alonso (97%), Matić (94%), Kanté (99%), Moses (98%) | Hazard (99%), Costa (99%), Pedro (79%)
