The Chelsea manager has released his list for his starting eleven and has made different changes in tactics and players from the one who played Arsenal at the Stamford Bridge last Sunday and a result of a draw with many of his major players rested.

N’Golo Kanye will not be starting in Anotonio Conte’s list for this tournament, he will be replaced by Tiemoue Bakayoko playing alongside Cesc Fabregas whilr Gary Cahill, Antonio Rudiger and Christensen will hold down the defence positions while Willy Caballero starts in goal.

Alvaro Morata starts the match from bench as he is replaced by Michy Batshuayi up front in the attack and Eden Hazard is a key player to start and this will be his fist start of the season coming in from the bench in his last two match appearances.

Youngster Kenedy gets a start surprisingly in the left wing back place also summer signing Zappacosta gets about action chance to prove to the manager and to the fans that he deserves a first team place and Marcos Alonso will be rested in this Cup match and it’s the best team wins or should I say the best advances.
