Going by who wasn't picked yesterday, the selection looks pretty obvious.

Cahill or Rudiger is one question mark and does he play Zappacosta? 

Midfield and attack should pick itself.

Yeah. Rudiger and Zappacosta for me. 9 of the 11 players did not start mid-week, so we managed the squad quite well. Three important games coming up over the next eight days. Hopefully, Kanté will be back for Roma and United, and we should be able to rotate and use our squad. Using the same XI three games in a row is not going to work, in fact only Hazard, Morata and Azpi should start in all of them.

Yup. 

Courtois, Azpi, Luiz, Rudiger, Zappa, Alonso, Baka, Cesc, Pedro, Hazard, Morata

Christensen and Rudiger going to get another chance? Quite possible with Roma in midweek and with Luiz having a knock recently, I wouldn't be too surprised to see:

Courtois

Azpi
Christensen
Rudiger

Zappacosta
Bakayoko
Fabregas
Alonso

Pedro
Morata
Hazard

Subs: Caballero, Cahill, Kenedy, Drinkwater, Willian, Musonda, Batshuayi

What is nice about this squad is that we actually have someone who can come on and give Fabregas/Bakayoko a rest!

Easy to pick the starting XI. Only decision we have to make is at RWB (unless Moses is still out).

I think Conte will go with;

Courtois; Azpi, Luiz, Cahill; Zappacosta, Bakayoko, Fabregas, Alonso; Pedro, Morata, Hazard

Subs: Caballero, Christensen, Rudiger, Moses, Drinkwater, Willian, Bats

Kenedy and Musonda to miss out. 

I would have gone with;

Courtois; Azpi, Christensen, Rudiger; Zappacosta, Bakayoko, Fabregas, Alonso; Pedro, Morata, Hazard

Subs: Caballero, Luiz, Moses, Kenedy, Drinkwater, Willian, Bats

Cahill and Musonda to miss out of it was up to me.

I'd be tempted to leave out Alonso for an enforced rest , the feller looks cream crackered to me.
