Ross Barkley has been handed a rare start in a Chelsea shirt as Thibaut Courtois returns for the match against AFC Bournemouth.
Antonio Conte will hope his decision to start Ross Barkley pays dividends, with the English midfielder finally deemed fit enough to feature from the get-go. Elsewhere, Thibaut Courtois returns as the first-choice goalkeeper for Chelsea.
Team to face Bournemouth: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill (c), Zappacosta, Kante, Bakayoko, Alonso, Barkley, Hazard, Pedro.
