Here we go.

Substitutes from: Caballero, Cahill, Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Fàbregas, Hudson-Odoi, Batshuayi

Date / Time: Saturday, December 23, 2017, 12:30 GMT; 7:30am EST; 6pm IST

As expected, Conte goes with the 3-4-3 and the three smalls up top. Rüdiger for Cahill the only surprise; Azpilicueta takes the armband. Hudson-Odoi, 17, keeps his place on the bench from midweek.

Wayne Rooney is MIA for the hosts, but that midfield will prove troublesome to beat.
