Chelsea’s transfer business looks to have concluded several hours ahead of tonight’s Transfer Deadline (11pm GMT), so now it’s time for some football!

That’s right, football on Trasnfer Deadline Day.

It’s a silly idea, but here we go.

Chelsea starting lineup (3-4-3):
Courtois | Cahill (c), Christensen, Azpilicueta | Alonso, Bakayoko, Kante, Zappacosta | Pedro, Hazard, Barkley

Substitutes from: Caballero, Rudiger, Ampadu, Drinkwater, Moses, Fabregas, Hudson-Odoi

AFC Bournemouth starting lineup (4-4-1-1):
Begovic | Daniels, Ake, S.Cook, Francis | Fraser, L.Cook, Gosling, Ibe | Stanislas | Wilson

Substitutes from: Boruc, Simpson, Surman, Arter, Pugh, King, Mousset

Date / Time: Wednesday, January 31, 2018, 19:45 GMT; 2:45pm EST; 1:15am IST
Venue: Stamford Bridge, SW6
Referee: Lee Probert
On TV: none (UK); none (USA); Star Sports Select 2 (India); elsewhere
Streaming online: NBC Sports Gold (USA); Hotstar (India); Chelsea TV (radio, int’l)

Without a recognized striker available in the squad, Conte goes with three smalls up top, including a first start for Ross Barkley. Fabregas and young Hudson-Odoi (and Victor Moses, too) are the attacking options off the bench if we need help.
