The Italian could shift over to the left after Marcos Alonso was charged and banned by the FA following an incident with Shane Long on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Pedro offers competition to Willian on the flank, while Ross Barkley and Tiemoue Bakayoko were both on the bench at the weekend and will compete with Cesc Fabregas for the role alongside N’Golo Kante.

Anthony Rudiger was omitted from the squad for tactical reasons last time out and could replace Gary Cahill or Andreas Christensen in the back three.
