Antonio Conte sticks with the 3-5-2, but there area a few changes from midweek. Tiemoué Bakayoko comes in to replace Danny Drinkwater in midfield — TDD not even on the bench... — while at the back, it’s Gary Cahill playing the center-most defender with Andreas Christensen presumably rested. David Luiz is on the bench as well.
