How Chelsea could be a Threat under Potter with a 4-2-1-3 Formation

Chelsea are close on appointing Graham Potter as their next manager a few days after sacking Thomas Tuchel. The current Brighton and Hove Albion coach has verbally agreed to take over Chelsea and the blues are working on documents for him to sign a five-year contract, as reported by Fabrizio Romano.

Graham Potter has been doing well with Brighton and this may be the reason why Chelsea saw and believed him as their long-term coach.

Potter has no specific formation as he changes depending on opponents and here in this article, we are going to look at how he could make Chelsea a threat in a 4-2-1-3 formation. Let's see how it looks like;


Eduardo Mendy

Eduardo Mendy could still be starting in the posts as the first choice goalkeeper for Chelsea ahead of Spanish Kepa Arizabalagha. This is a fact that Mendy has been very impressive at Stamford Bridge with some unexpected saves on the pitch.


James, Silva, Fofana and Cucurella

Englishman Reece James could possibly make a start as a right back alongside Marc Cucurella as a left back. Cucurella played under Potter at Brighton and the coach knows how to get the best out of him. Meanwhile, Thiago Silva could possibly pair with new signing Wesley Fofana at the central defence to complete the backline.


Kante, Jorginho and Mount

Possession monsters Ngolo Kante and Jorginho could possibly be paired together as the team's central defensive midfielders following their great partnership in the past games. Meanwhile, Mason Mount could start as an attacking midfielder above Kante and Jorginho. This could possibly be the strongest midfield pair for Chelsea.


Aubameyang, Broja and Havertz

The possible dangerous attacking trio for Chelsea that Graham Potter could deploy consists of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang as a left winger, Kai Havertz as a right winger and Armando Broja as the center forward.

The possible line up and structure of the 4-2-1-3 formation looks like the one shown below:
