Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is warming up for the Premier League opener at Stamford Bridge tonight, when the Blues will face West Ham.
New signings Michy Batshuayi and N’Golo Kante will likely feature tonight (the Belgium international will probably start from the bench since Diego Costa is expected to lead the Blues’ attack) with Kurt Zouma still recovering from the knee injury he suffered last season.
Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas will fight for a place in the midfield, with the Serbia International who is said to be more likely to play.
Slaven Bilic has to replace Aaron Cresswell and Manuel Lanzini but Dimitri Payet is said to be fit and will play at Stamford Bridge.
Also Diafra Sakho and Doneil Henry are both injured and not expected to feature in the Premier League opener against the Blues.
