After a testing evening against Arsenal in midweek, Antonio Conte is widely expected to make some changes when Chelsea host Newcastle in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup on Sunday – especially with Bournemouth due at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
And with plenty of options to choose from this season, the defence could be the department that sees the most rotation. In fact, captain Gary Cahill seems almost certain to come back into the side after sitting out the 2-1 defeat to the Gunners in the League Cup.
With that in mind, we asked Chelsea fans earlier this week whether they’d like to see 17-year-old Ethan Ampadu, 56-cap Brazil international David Luiz or both brought into the starting XI for Sunday’s 1.30pm kickoff.
And according to our poll, the majority of Chelsea fans – 52% – want to see the prodigious Welshman start ahead of Luiz, who has found himself an increasingly peripheral figure this term.
