Conte stick with the 3-4-3, as expected, but restores Álvaro Morata to the starting lineup — his first start in ten matches — and goes with Drinkwater over Fàbregas in a rare Premier League start. Drinkwater and Kanté re-form their Leicester City partnership, hopefully to expected effect.

Mourinho sets out in a familiar 4-3-3, with Pogba and Matić starting. Juan Mata’s on the bench.
