Chelsea’s manager, Antonio Conte, have officially revealed the starting 11 that he chose to start in today’s crucial match in the FA Cup quarter-finals against the Premier League side, Leicester City, where the Italian manager will be fighting for a win away from home in this competition, which is Chelsea’s last chance to win any trophy this season after getting knocked out of the Champions League, losing the EFL Cup final, and losing the Premier League title race with Manchester City.
The starting Xl is the following:
Goalkeeper: Willy Caballero
Defenders: Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, and Cesar Azpilicueta (captain)
Midfielders: Victor Moses, Tiemoue Bakayoko, N’Golo Kante, and Marcos Alonso.
Forward: Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata, and Willian
Bench: Eduardo, Gary Cahill, Davide Zappacosta, Emerson, Cesc Fabregas, Pedro, and Oliver Giroud.
Antonio Conte should be playing a defensive game where losing this match means his team will get knocked out. A win is desired, but also a draw could keep Chelsea’s hopes of qualifying by playing the second leg.
We expect a 1-1 draw or a 2-1 win for Chelsea. A loss will be a humiliation and could affect Chelsea’s Premier League journey this season to reach the top four.
