Antonio Conte revealed he has one or two situations to check following the 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid as Chelsea make their way to West Ham United.

After being rested for Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid, Marcos Alonso looks set for a recall at left wing-back as Chelsea make their way to West Ham United.

Victor Moses has played 180 minutes over the last two matches, so Davide Zappacosta may get the nod at right wing-back.

If Conte chooses his first choice defence, Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Gary Cahill should form the three-man defence, though Antonio Rudiger is the alternative if the Chelsea boss looks to rotate with one eye on Tuesday night’s trip to Huddersfield Town.

Danny Drinkwater misses out due to illness, so Tiemoue Bakayoko, Cesc Fabregas and N’Golo Kante look set to start in central midfield if Conte sticks with the 3-5-1-1 system.

That would mean Eden Hazard continuing in the No 10 role behind lone striker Alvaro Morata, with Pedro and Willian options if the Chelsea boss decides to switch to a 3-4-2-1.

Michy Batshuayi provide another attacking alternative if Conte wants to rotate. David Luiz remains sidelined.
