Mark Warburton has decided on a formation change, altering the 4-2-3-1 that was used in Saturday’s defeat against Wolves.
In an attempt to match Chelsea’s three at the back, Warburton has made 8 changes to his side – including a start for former Chelsea defender Michael Mancienne.
Antonio Conte opts for nine changes from the side that drew Arsenal 0-0 on Sunday, with only captain Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas retaining their places. The Italian manager has also found it suitable to hand Eden Hazard his first start of the new campaign.
