Opinion: How Chelsea Could line Up With Their Two Dream Signings vs Crystal Palace For The Opening Fixture

Chelsea probable line up with the new summer targets in the upcoming 2021/22 Premier League season.

Chelsea are set to meet Crystal Palace on the Premier League opening day for 2021/22 season. The Blues will be targeting to win the Premier League title after missing it for three successful seasons now since the year 2017.

The Blues are reportedly working on completing some new players into Thomas Tuchel squad ahead of the new season. Tuchel needs a few additions to bolster his squad to make them to be strong title contenders according to their objectives.

According to Football London, Chelsea are strongly linked with Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland who is expected to solve their goals scoring crisis. The report further reveals that the Blues have already arrived at personal terms agreement with Haaland meaning the deal is getting more closer.

The Blues are also linked with Inter Milan right back Achraf Hakimi and the deal for the defender is reportedly getting closer too, after the Blues submitted another improved offer of about £68.5 million after Milan rejected their first transfer offer.

If the Blues completes the two main target transfer deals, Tuchel will be forced to make a few changes in his lineup starting from the opening match against Crystal Palace. Achraf Hakimi will be used as the alternative for aging Captain Cesar Azzipliqueta, while Erling Haaland will be used as an alternative for Timo Werner in the forward line.

Chelsea Probable Line-up Against Crystal Palace. Formation: 5-2-3: Mendy, Rudiger, Silva, James, Chilwell, Hakimi, Kante, Jorginho, Mount, Havertz, Haaland.
