How could Nathan Ake fit into Chelsea's starting XI?
Ake made 10 Premier League appearances for the Cherries, scoring three goals and had become an important player for Eddie Howe.
In his absence Bournemouth were hammered 3-1 by relegation battlers Hull.
Ake is expected to challenge for a place in Conte’s back three or at left-wing-back.
Marcos Alonso is said to have a lingering injury problem which Conte was worried about but it didn’t stop him scoring twice in the win over Leicester.
