Our third poll to pick the lineup that the Vital Chelsea readership believe to be Antonio Conte`s best chance of success has closed and we can now reveal the results. At the moment we`re deciding on the best defence.

Our previous rounds of voting have seen Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen picked. The third round of voting had three names to chose from,

⦁ Gary Cahill
⦁ David Luiz
⦁ Antonio Rudiger

As Conte generally lines up with a three man defence, this pick is effectively, the best defensive lineup. Coming at the top of the pile this time was Antonio Rudiger who grabbed 68% of the votes. The German easily secured the third place in the starting XI.

Way back in second place in this vote and ultimately fourth overall was David Luiz who scored 22%. Current captain Gary Cahill came in last place this time with 10% of the total votes. Overall, he also finished last out of the five defenders.

So the Vital Chelsea readership have voted

⦁ Cesar Azpilicueta
⦁ Andreas Christensen
⦁ Antonio Rudiger

into the starting XI. Next we`ll be looking at the midfield, but that will be next week. For now we`ll concentrate on the weekends football action, starting with who you think will win the game that kicks off at 12:30pm on Saturday against West Ham.

Please use your vote wisely!
