I searched for the International politics thread, can't find it.  So here:

Might be a little previous, but it looks like this will be the result

Musonda, Luiz, Christiensen all in training following injury / illness. 

Not sure I would expect any to start. I think he will go with:

Courtois, Rudiger, Azpi, Cahill, Kante, Baka, Alonso, Zappa (mixing it up), Hazard, Willian, Morata 

But I have a feeling Willian will be left out for Fabregas. My personal preference

Courtois, Rudiger, Azpi, Cahill, Kante, Cesc, Alonso, Zappa, Hazard, Willian / Pedro , Morata

I'd hope that the choice of Bakayoko in the Willian/Pedro role was a big enough failure for Conte to want to move on.
I fear he'll move on by putting Drinkwater in the front 3 instead.

Be surprised if Christensen didn’t start if he was back in training today, and I’d also expect to see Moses over Zappa due to Stoke’s physicality

Especially as Christensen was 'merely' ill rather than injured (heavy cold perhaps or nausea caused by smelling a mince pie close by?) 😉

I avoided mince pies this year for exactly that reason. Is there a way to squeeze more sugar into a pie crust?

Yeah, expect Christensen to back in it for this one. He is also due a goal, would be a good way to round off his great year. Drinkwater could be given a rare start, although the FA cup is coming up soon and has his name written all over it. Think Conte will continue with Bakayoko, as we will need that extra big man in Stoke's box. Usual suspects-looking XI:

Courtois - Azpi Christensen Cahill - Moses Bakayoko Kante Fabregas Alonso - Hazard Morata

                Courtois 

Azpilicueta  Christensen  Cahill

Moses  Drinkwater  Kante  Alonso

               Fabregas

                             Hazard

               Morata

 

Right now, this is our best lineup, imo.
