Antonio and Hector in: Conte’s dream Chelsea defence after the January transfer window
CB – Kurt Zouma
Kurt Zouma has only just returned from injury, but prior to his spell on the sidelines, he was a vital member of the Chelsea defence – and he must return to the back line sooner, rather than later.
He is pacey enough to work wonders in a 3-man central defensive trio, replacing the often inconsistent Gary Cahill in this side.
The French defender is also a natural leader, which would make him for Cahill’s absence at the back. He is still young, but he has it all.
