Antonio Conte's Chelsea FC have come back strongly after faltering initially in the season. Changing the formation to 3-4-3 has done wonders for the team.

Antonio Conte is likely to retain the same starting XI who defeated Southampton last week. Pedro has become a regular started since the manager has adopted a 3-4-3 formation.

Even though he has players like Willian and Oscar it is unlikely that an in-form Pedro will be dropped from the starting XI.

Ronald Koeman, on the other hand, will likely bring star defender Phil Jagielka into the starting. The English centre-back was kept on the bench against West Ham United last week.
