Premier League holders Chelsea will be looking to clinch top spot in their Champions League group when they take on Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge. The Blues are unbeaten since the 3-0 thrashing at AS Roma earlier in October, and they come into the game with full of confidence after sealing a 3-1 comeback win over Newcastle United.
Thibaut Courtois has been ever-present in the club’s Premier League and Champions League duties and we back him to start in the number one role. Likewise, Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen could retain their spots alongside Gary Cahill, who started off the bench versus Newcastle.
Victor Moses lasted the full 90 minutes in the Magpies triumph, and Conte could prolong with the Nigerian in the right wing-back spot with Marcos Alonso in the opposite direction as usual.
Onto the midfield, Danny Drinkwater could make way for Tiemoue Bakayoko, who is likely to partner compatriot N’Golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas in a three-man midfield, which has brought success for Chelsea of late.
Eden Hazard is undoubtedly enjoying a purple patch at the moment, and he will be looking to continue his impressive touch after his brace versus Newcastle. Morata also got into the scoresheet in the 3-1 win over Magpies, and the pair could once more be influential against Diego Simeone’s side.
