Chelsea Starting XI vs Qarabag: Conte drops Moses

Champions League By: Ayodeji Tunde | 12/09/2017


Antonio Conte has made some major changes to his Starting XI in tonight's Champions League clash and one of such is the exclusion is that of Nigeria international Victor Moses.

As Conte hinted in his press conference, Eden Hazard is still not fit enough for a start, and he is on the bench along with star striker Alvaro Morata. Michy Batshuayi gets a start for the first time since the Community Shield.

In midfield, it’s the Fabregas-Kante combo that has served us so well.

In defence Davide Zappacosta makes his debut, and Andreas Christensen returns to the team along with captain Gary Cahill.

If the game goes as planned, expect to see Eden Hazard appear late on to get some minutes under his belt, as well as some potential game-time for Charly Musonda too.
