EPL: How Chelsea Could Line Up Against Everton

Chelsea begin their 2022/23 Premier League season with a tricky away clash against Everton. Having lost seven out of their last league matches at Goodison Park, Chelsea would need a strong team in order to avoid an opening day defeat tomorrow night.

In this article, we look at how Chelsea could line up against the Magpies who are coached by Frank Lampard.

Formation

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel has always favoured the 3-4-2-1 formation. He used this formation in Chelsea's 3:1 preseason win over Udinese. Therefore, let us assume he will employ the same against Everton tomorrow night.

Goalkeeper

Senegalese Edourd Mendy is Chelsea's first choice keeper. We expect him to keep his starting spot. Kepa Arrizabalaga will have to wait for his chances on the bench.

Defenders

The Chelsea backline is likely to consist of veteran defenders Kalidou Koulibaly, Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta.

Midfielders

In midfield, Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Ng'olo Kante and Jorginho are the likely starters. Ben Chilwell (LB) and Reece James (RB) will be deployed on the flanks while Kante and Jorginho will control the play in central midfield.

Attackers

Thomas Tuchel is likely to use a front three consisting of new signing Raheem Sterling, Kai Havertz and Chelsea academy product Mason Mount.

Subs

Arrizabalaga, Bettinelli, Trevor Chalobah,Timo Werner, Conor Gallagher, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Marc Cucurella, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi could all make the Chelsea bench against Everton.
