Chelsea will play tomorrow, Saturday, in the Premier League Matchday 21 against Stoke City at home, Stamford Bridge, in the final match in 2017 which was a successful year for The Blues where Chelsea won the Premier League.
When and where is the match?
When: The match will be on Saturday, December 30 at 4 PM BST.
Where: Stamford Bridge (home)
Who will play?
Antonio Conte is expected to play with full strength but may consider resting a couple of key players against Stoke City who is going in a bad time where they are just three points away from the relegation zone.
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois
Defenders: Cesar Azpilicueta (captain) , Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger
Midfielders: Davide Zappacosta, N’Golo Kante, Danny Drinkwater, and Marcos Alonso
Forward: Pedro, Hazard, and Alvaro Morata
Chelsea should be able to win against Stoke City, but Stoke City will try defend and at least eye one point from the Premier League champions, Chelsea, to help them in their relegation battle where a loss could mean they will be in the relegation area. We expect a 2-0 win for Chelsea.
Chelsea has won eight out of their nine matches against Stoke City, where The Blues drew just once.
