Chelsea v Crystal Palace - Premier League
Conte has decided against starting Hazard in a false 9 role

Kickoff in the Round of 16 second leg clash between Barcelona and Chelsea is less than an hour away and the starting lineups are out. Ernesto Valverde hasn't made much of a change to his starting except that Ousmane Dembele has gotten the nod ahead of Phillipe Coutinho.

Meanwhile, for the Blues, Antonio Conte is playing Cesc Fabregas in midfield against his former side whereas Olivier Giroud starts upfront with Eden Hazard playing on his preferred left wing role instead of a false nine.

Both the teams head into Camp Nou level at 1-1 on aggregate.

Here's how Twitter reacted:
