Chelsea lineup against Tottenham
Thomas Tuchel has faced spurs seven times as Chelsea and Dortmund manager without tasting defeat. Here is the Chelsea starting 11 he might set up to continue his 100% record against Tottenham in a 3-4-3 system.
GK: Edouard Mendy – The Senegalese has maintained his number one spot at the club and their is no doubt he will start in goal.
CB: Cesar Azpilicueta – Chelsea’s skipper manager to resist the allure of Barcelona’s millions this summer, extending his decade-long stay in west London.
CB: Thiago Silva – For the first time in 13 years of European football, Silva scored home and away against the same club, in the same season with his pair of headers against Spurs last term.
CB: Kalidou Koulibaly – Thomas has been positive about his summer recruit but is still some way short of the admiration Napoli manager Luciano had for the center-back.
RB: Reece James – Thomas pointedly highlighted that, given the attacking responsibilities placed on the likes of James in Chelsea’s system: “We didn’t have enough from the wing backs to create more freedom for the inner players,” after the side’s narrow win against Everton.
CM: N’Golo Kante -Thomas Tuchel admitted that N’Golo Kante is Chelsea’s Messi in an interview with sky sports. The Frenchman offers solidity, creativity and intensity in big games and he will be an obvious starter against spurs.
CM: Jorginho – The midfielder scored the only goal from a penalty spot in Chelsea’s opening game against Everton and will retain his position at the heart of Chelsea’s midfield.
LB: Ben Chilwell – After getting the nod on the opening weekend, Ben could earn his first Stamford Bridge start since rupturing his cruciate ligament on that ground last November.
RW: Mason Mount – No player has made more appearances (80), scored more goals (19) or provided more assists (20) than Mount since 2020.
ST: Raheem Sterling – Across the previous five league seasons, Sterling has scored 75 non-penalty goals. The $60 million summer signing from Manchester city is expected to add pace and creativity to Chelsea’s forward.
LW: Kai Havertz – “fluidity”, “rhythm”. These were all the elements Thomas believed Chelsea lacked from their opening day victory over Everton. A particularly rusty Kai offered little in the way of lubrication last weekend.
