Antonio Conte, Chelsea’s manager, has decided on the starting 11 that will play in the London Derby clash against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup semi-final today in the first leg at home, Stamford Bridge, where the Blues will eye to win this match and make their second match easier.
The starting Xl is as following:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois
Defenders: Cesar Azpilicueta (captain), Andreas Christensen, and Antonio Rudiger
Midfielders: Victor Mosses, N’Golo Kante, Danny Drinkwater, Cesc Fabregas, and Marcos Alonso
Forward: Eden Hazard, and Alvaro Morata
Bench: Eduardo, David Luiz, Davide Zappacosta, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Willian, Pedro, and Michy Batshuayi.
Our predicted score
Chelsea should take advantage of playing this leg at home and try to make their second match easier at Arsenal’s home, Emirates Stadium, and take advantage of the bad situation Arsenal is going through now due to several reasons such as injuries, absences, and getting knocked out of the FA Cup a few days ago.
We expect a 3-0 win for Chelsea.
