Premier League

Predicted Chelsea lineup versus Manchester City is 4-2-3-1.

We take a look at the Chelsea anticipated lineup for the Premier League matchup between the two rivals in the first of two consecutive games against Manchester City. The FA Cup may involve rotation, but for this match, everyone is on their toes.

What recent lineups has Chelsea had?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has lost his starting position as Kai Havertz has taken over as the line-leader in recent contests. Mason Mount, Raheem Sterling, and Christian Pulisic typically support the German international. Behind that trio, things become a little more complicated because Jorginho and Denis Zakaria have traditionally filled the two defensive midfield positions, but Mateo Kovacic's return after the World Cup might change that.

Thiago Silva, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella, and Cesar Azpilicueta make up the defensive four, with Kepa Arrizabalaga serving as the firm's number one goalkeeper.

Chelsea's Most Recent Moves and Form

The Blues have experimented with a three at the back formation, but that has been phased out due to a lack of wing-backs since the World Cup ended. Since then, they have been using a 4-2-3-1 formation with varying degrees of success.

Despite his squad being on one of the worst runs in recent club history, Graham Potter has yet to discover a formation and setup that is effective.

Consider Chelsea's absences
