Chelsea will take on West Ham United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening. The Blues will be trying to rebound from their underwhelming showing against Arsenal on Saturday. Chelsea’s loss against Arsenal was blamed on Lukaku, Christiansen, and Malang Sarr, all of whom were scapegoats. This was a mistake on the part of all three, and Tuchel will have to rethink his team selection for the weekend match.
With that in mind, how should Chelsea line up against Moyes’s team in order to prevent any surprises?
According to our predictions, the Blues will likely line up in a 3-4-1-2 shape. According to this format, the team sheet should look like this:
Edouard Mendy has been the most impressive goalkeeper for Chelsea this season. The Senegalese will, without a doubt, get the ball rolling on Sunday.
Defenders in the middle of the field
Chelsea suffered a setback on Wednesday as a result of the absences of Rudiger and Thiago Silva. Christiansen and Malang Sarr should be relegated to the bench, and Chalobah should be given the opportunity to start alongside Rudiger and the aging Silva.
It is the wingbacks’ imagination that allows Tuchel’s style of play to flourish. They are responsible for providing width and overlap with the wingers. Marcos Alonso and Reece James are the specialists in this area, and the two will need to get the ball rolling this weekend.
Ruben Loftus Cheek and Jorghino will be in charge of the midfield. Mateo Kovacic is out with an injury and is unlikely to be back in action until Sunday. Kante seems to be exhausted in other parts of the game, and he needs to relax.
Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, and Timo Werner have developed a deep knowledge of one another, and they are forming a lethal alliance. – After the two German attackers, Mount is expected to start in the No.10 position behind them.
