Chelsea fans desperate for Zappacosta to start against Man United

A hamstring problem will see Victor Moses miss Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

The 26-year-old has not represented Chelsea since their 2-1 defeat at Crystal Palace on October 14, and will not play any part against United at Stamford Bridge.

With Moses on the sidelines, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is expected to again select Cesar Azpilicueta in a wing-back position, leaving Gary Cahill, Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz as his three centre-backs.

The Chelsea supporters have offered a better solution, however, with many calling for Conte to select summer signing Davide Zappacosta in the XI.

The 25-year-old, who is valued at £13.5m by transfermarkt.co.uk, arrived at Stamford Bridge from Torino during the summer, but has only started one Premier League game for the champions.

The majority of Chelsea fans would rather Cahill did not feature on Sunday, which would allow Azpilicueta to start at centre-back, and open up a wing-back role for Zappacosta.

Is Conte listening? We will find out at around 3pm on Sunday afternoon.
