It's the same as last time, except Jeremie Boga starts in place of the injured Pedro and Andreas Christensen in place of David Luiz. It should be interesting to assess how the pair slot in among an otherwise first-choice XI. We should be seeing our shiny, brand new new signing, Alvaro Morata in action at some point as well. Let's get hyped!
