The Chelsea XI Conte must pick vs. Sunderland

Chelsea’s recent run of form has been breathtaking, with their narrow weekend win over West Brom taking them to nine victories on the spin, moving them clear at the top of the table.

You have to go back to the end of September for the last time Chelsea failed to win a game, and that defeat came at the hands of title rivals Arsenal. Since then, Chelsea have scored 25 goals and conceded just two.

Tonight, the Blues have to travel north to face a resurgent Sunderland side who have managed to win three of their last four Premier League games to miraculously pull themselves away from what looked like certain relegation.

David Moyes has inspired the recent change in fortunes, and the former Everton manager will be hopeful of adding to their recent success as the Wearsiders face the unenviable task of taking points from Chelsea.

For Antonio Conte to secure a tenth straight victory, he must pick this starting XI at the Stadium of Light.
