Premier League

Chelsea Lineup That Can Help The Club Bounce Back To Winning This Weekend.

This weekend, Chelsea will play against Southampton in an English premier league fixture. The game will kickoff at exactly 17:00 hours East African Time.

In the past two games Chelsea has performed poorly and has lost two consecutive games. That is the game against Manchester city in the English premier league and against Juventus in the UEFA champions league.

However, Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel can make some minor changes to his squad and bounce back to winning trend this weekend.

Below is the lineup that Tuchel could use to destroy and silence Southampton tomorrow.

Goalkeeper

Eduard Mendy has been on good form since joining Chelsea last summer transfer window and deserves a position in the starting lineup.

Defense

Tuchel should use two center backs, that is Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger instead of the usual three and two full backs that is Ben Chilwell and Azpiliqueta.

This will avail more players for attacking and driving the ball forward which is the current Chelsea's weakness.

Midfield

In the past few games, Jorginho has been having poor performance at the midfield and since N'Golo Kante tested positive for Covid-19 and will not be available for selection, Thomas Tuchel could give Ruben Loftus Cheek and Ross Barkley a chance in the starting lineup. Ruben Loftus Cheek and Ross Barkley have been having an impressive performance in the past few matches despite coming on from the bench.

The two will combine their efforts with Mateo Kovacic to ensure that they dominate the midfield.

Attacking

Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic are all injured and most probably are not available for selection.

The two have been very key to the squad. Tuchel should either play Hakim Ziyech or Kai Havertz on the left wing and Callum Hudson Odoi on the right wing.

At the center forward, Thomas Tuchel should use Romelu Lukaku.
