Conte simply must start these 2 Chelsea players against Tottenham on Wednesday

Nemanja Matic

Cesc Fabregas has been fantastic in the heart of the Chelsea midfield in recent weeks, but against Tottenham it would make sense to play Nemanja Matic in his place.

Like Pedro, Fabregas isn’t as defensive as Matic – and that will be a problem against a side that has the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli in the attack.

Fabregas could come on late in the clash if Chelsea are behind, but Conte should have faith in his attack to perform well without his influence.

Matic makes the Chelsea midfield more secure – and that will be important.
