FA Cup

Chelsea's Predicted lineup for the FA Semi-finals at Wembley, Ziyech and Chalobah

This Sunday evening, chelsea will face Palace at Wembley in the FA semi-finals. Chelsea holds an impressive record against Viera's side, the season they have won both matches against with an aggregate of 4 goals. 

Having been crushed out of the UCL race, Chelsea will have to turn thier full focus on the FA Cup. The squad that faced Real Madrid was good, however, we expect Tuchel to makes some changes to accommodate some new faces and fresh legs. With that in mind, let us look at the possible lineup;


Eduard Mendy is the preferred choice goalkeeper and will proceed to start FA Cup tie 

Central defenders

the match will be very physical and demanding given the type of player that Viera has. Tuchel will opt for the back-three system featuring Rudiger, Thiago Silvia and Trevoh Chalobah.


in the back three system, full backs hold some significant amount of influence in Tuchel's play style. Alonso has been having some convincing performance in the last two outings and will start alongside Reece James.


This is an area which will experience some changes, Jorghino is expected to start alongside Kovacic to facilitate rotation and sees Kante rest.


Ziyech scored a stunner the last time faced Palace. The Moroccan wizard will start as one of the dual No.10s with the most inform-Mason Mount.


With the influential No of goals in the front line, Kai deserves another chance to start as a false9.
