CHELSEA POTENTIAL STARTING LINE-UP
Conte has come up with several surprises since his side returned from the international break. Against Crystal Palace he lined up in a 3-5-2 formation to accommodate for the loss of Moses through injury.
He switched it again against Manchester City to give Kurt Zouma his first Premier League start since 7 February 2016, when he tore his anterior cruciate ligament against Manchester United.
For once, it is hard to guess what system Conte might employ against Bournemouth, but his most recent experiments have impacted upon his team’s fluidity. Conte may opt to use Willian or Cesar Azpilicueta in Moses’ role, as he has done in the last week. There is also an outside chance that Moses might return.
The rest of his line up is likely to remain broadly the same, but Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas will compete for their spot in central midfield.
Diego Costa, though misfiring of late, will lead the line as he competes with Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Everton’s Romelu Lukaku for the Premier League Golden Boot.
