Until Zouma returns from injury or Chelsea sign a new central defender, you can expect the familiar pairing of Terry and Cahill to line up next season. The English duo at their best were some force, but they were heavily criticised during the clubs collapse last season, but then again, so was the whole squad. In fact the entire back 5 is likely to look similar next season as Conte looks to build upon an established back five. Although he was linked with a move away earlier in the window, Courtois is set to stay with the club. 32-year-old Ivanovic could be a cause for concern. Of course we all know his quality but he really struggled last season and it looks as if his age is getting the better of him. Azpilicueta could always move to right back and allow the young but promising Ola Aina to feature at left back.
