The festive period is in full swing, and Antonio Conte has yet another side to pick ahead of the weekend…

Victory against Bournemouth on Boxing Day proved far easier than expected for Antonio Conte, with the team that he selected doing the business for the 12th game in a row.

Now, with several of Chelsea’s key men back in the fold – the Blues will be expected to comfortably dispatch Stoke City on Saturday.

Both Diego Costa and N’Golo Kante have now returned from their suspensions, and given that they have been two of Chelsea’s most important players – victory should be a foregone conclusion.

Conte will have a few tough decisions on his hands, not least because of how well his side performed in the last game – though any players that he picks will be expected to get the job done.

With that said, this is the 3-4-3 XI Conte should pick for Chelsea to demolish Stoke City…
