Antonio Conte has a fully-fit Chelsea squad to face Manchester United in the FA Cup, and looks sure to rotate his first-team.
With Chelsea next in action at Stoke five days later, Conte has to decide whether or not to field his first-choice line-up against United, and push for the League and Cup double.
Blues captain John Terry has played in the three prior FA Cup rounds, but the defender’s place against United is not guaranteed, if Conte decides to stick with the back five which is helping guide the club to Premier League glory.
“I have to decide the starting XI and for sure I’ll try to make the best decision for the team,” Conte revealed. “We want to go in the next round, in the same way like Manchester United. I try to make the best decision for the team.”
Chelsea (from): Courtois, Begovic, Fabregas, Zouma, Alonso, Kante, Hazard, Loftus-Cheek, Moses, Pedro, Costa, Matic, Willian, Batshuayi, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Luiz, Eduardo, Aina, Ake.
