Mixed about the line up. Happy to have Kante back, but the fact Cesc & Morata retain their places is shocking tbh.

Biggest matchups for me to be concerned with are seeing if Andreas can deal with the strength of Lukaku and if Zappa can deal with the extreme pace of Rashford. As long as Kante is close to full fitness I'm confident in our midfield.

I wanted to see Drinks in the line-up but at least Kante is there to cover for Baka and Cesc. And you can be sure there will be a lot to cover. Hazard and Morata need to be at their best as they are basically the only threat up front. Come on boys, fight for the shirt!

Luiz's decision making has been a bit suspect recently so not super surprising that he's been dropped. Should hopefully motivate him to come back next game in better form.

A lot of rumours coming out that that Luiz has been dropped from the squad. Hope this is not true, however there is no smoke without fire. Not sure what circumstances are to this if true.

Any reliable information why he was dropped? We don't really need more drama lol

Drama or not...he has been shocking recently... Though can't understand why Cahill Fabregas and Bakayoko are still right there

6 players in our line-up are fit for a team that finishes 6th each season. 4 outfield players fit for this game. (I'm lumping Christensen in with the 6 simply for lack of experience. Regardless, best case scenario, only half our team are good enough.)

No idea tbh. However not good that he is not injured and travelled on his own apparently. Some bust up would of had to happen for him to be dropped out completely.

Cesc surely has to realize that now Drinkwater is fit and available he has to put in a huge performance here or he will get dropped. At least I hope that's Conte's mentality. Showing massive faith by starting him in a match this important after that shambolic performance against Roma.
