Midfield – Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bissouma, Sessegnon
Rodrigo Bentancur has been dependable for Conte since he signed from Juventus in January, but Yves Bissouma could challenge his spot in central midfield. The Mali international grew into the game against the Hammers and showed some nice touches by the end, which could allow him to keep his spot given that Bentancur has only just recovered from injury.
Wednesday’s clash against Marseille could also be weighing on the manager’s mind, which may hand Ryan Sessegnon a start against former club Fulham. Emerson Royal and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are expected to complete the midfield quartet with Oliver Skipp back on the bench after suffering a fractured heel.
