Alvaro Morata returns to the starting lineup to lead the attack for Chelsea as they face Manchester United, with Olivier Giroud dropping to the bench.
Maurizio Sarri has named an expected starting eleven, with Antonio Rudiger starting at the back, having recovered enough to warrant a place in the starting eleven. Elsewhere, Mateo Kovacic also receives the same fate as the German international, with the on-loan Real Madrid star starting in midfield.

But, the big news is Olivier Giroud dropping to the bench to make way for Alvaro Morata, who has regained his scoring touch. The in-form Eden Hazard starts in attack as well, with Willian completing the front three.
