Potential Chelsea Lineup as They Face Swansea City on Sunday

The international break has ended, thankfully, and it's once again back to the real football after a minor stop in the Premier League season.


For some it was a chance to represent their national teams while their club managers sat on edge hoping their star players return injury free, while for others it was a chance for some extra training to get back up to scratch.


Anyway it's back and here's a predicted Chelsea lineup to play Swansea this Sunday as Antonio Conte looks to maintain his 100% winning start with the Blues. Let's go!

Goalkeeper

Courtois he picks himself really and can only improve under Antonio Conte.​

Defence

  • Ivanovic

​It's hard to see Conte introducing both of his deadline day defensive signings into an already unstable defence, and it's David Luiz who is the more foreseeable to start.


Alongside David Luiz will be captain John Terry ahead of Gary Cahill as he offers for experience and is the captain.


So with the introduction of Luiz it leaves Ivanovic and Azpilcueta to keep their starting places, despite the recent arrival of Marcos Alonso.

Midfield

  • Kanté

  • Hazard

Holding down the defensive midfield spot is highly anticipated to be once again Kante, not Conte,​ with Matic and Oscar playing just ahead of him in the other central midfield positions.


Over on the right Willian is predicted to start after proving to be the light in a bad season last year. While over on the left is almost certain to be Eden Hazard who is looking more like the PFA winner from two seasons ago rather than the Eden Hazard of last season.

Forwards

  • D. Costa

​There's only really one man for the job Diego Costa, despite reportedly wanting a move back to Madrid, he is still providing the goals for the Blues and has not been halted in his starting spot by the arrival of Michy Batshuayi; who as evidently been brought in to provide cover for Costa.
