    £40m man misses out: The 3-4-3 Chelsea XI that Conte should pick vs Leicester City, 2

    The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for the Premier League to get underway…

    The Blues were finally getting a bit of momentum after a poor start to the campaign, having defeated both Tottenham and Everton in the weeks leading up to the break.

    With a loss to Burnley on the opening day now a distant memory, most fans are ready for the campaign to continue and a Premier League title challenge to follow.

    Next up for the Blues, though, is a tough game against Leicester City. Though no longer the side they were a couple of years ago, the Foxes will still provide a stern test.

    Both N'Golo Kante and new signing Danny Drinkwater could be available for selection against their former side.

    Significantly, Antonio Conte is likely to adopt a fairly standard side, with most of his side available, and that could mean that £40 million summer signing Tiemoue Bakayoko may be relegated to the bench once again.

    With that said, this is the 3-4-3 Chelsea XI that Conte should pick vs Leicester City…

    Courtois has made a decent start to the season, and he'll have to be on form to stop the threatening Leicester City attack.

    He should be up to the challenge.

    In place of Gary Cahill once again, Azpilicueta will command the Chelsea defence.

    He's been his usual consistent self so far.

    Chelsea's ball-playing central defender shows no sign of slowing down.

    His pace will be key.

    Rudiger has made a fantastic start to life in London.

    The German might even keep Gary Cahill out of the side at this rate.

    Victor Moses has got competition in this role now, but he's likely to remain in the Chelsea team for now.

    He'll have to work hard defensively.

    A game against his former side.

    N'Golo Kante will have his hands full with Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy.

    £40m million summer signing Tiemoue Bakayoko is back to fitness now, but a fine performance from Fabregas in Chelsea's last game against Everton means that he deserves to play again.

    A poor performance could see him out of the side, though.

    Bolton's former defender had a terrific first season for Chelsea, scoring a total of six goals. He's started the season in similar form with a brace against Spurs.

    What a signing.

    With Eden Hazard still not back, Pedro will need to step up once again.

    His pace is always a threat.

    Morata has made a great start to life in London, and a goal for his country will have done wonders for his confidence.

    More of the same is to be expected.

    The Brazilian is back to his best, and Eden Hazard will find it tough to displace him.

    His technique is second to none.
