As expected, Alvaro Morata is in the Chelsea starting line-up for the Champions League Group C encounter at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues, two points clear of Roma at the top of the group, are without the injured N’Golo Kante and Victor Moses but striker Morata has been passed fit following a recent hamstring problem.

David Zappacosta comes in for Moses and with Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Andreas Christensen all starting, boss Antonio Conte seems to have moved David Luiz into midfield or changed formation.

Chelsea: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill, Luiz, Zappacosta, Bakayoko, Fabregas, Alonso, Hazard, Morata.
Subs: Caballero, Rudiger, Scott, Kenedy, Pedro, Willian, Batshuayi.

Roma: Alisson, Peres, Fazio, Jesus, Kolarov, Nainggolan, Gonalons, Strootman, Gerson, Dzeko, Perotti.
