Eden Hazard or Diego Costa will lead the race for captaincy. Alexis Sanchez can be the other option, one can have in mind.
Diafra Sakho is injured and Bony misses out for his commitment to Ivory Coast in African Cup of Nations. Pelle can take the place of Bony and Sakho has a better replacement in form of Kane.
Yaya Toure and Sadio Mane cannot be present due to the same reason as Wilfred Bony. Toure should be trasferred out for Hazard, whereas, Eriksen or Tadic can be brought in stead of Mane.
