Ziyech and Kovacic in, Lukaku out… as Chelsea traveled to Saint Mary’s Stadium on Saturday to play against Southampton in other to boost their points in the premier league table.
Although, Chelsea is going right back into the thick of things this weekend and has a very tough match against Southampton to try and bounce back in. After losing the last two matches and conceding seven goals, there is a real need for a reaction now. But this is no easy place to go and get that and Southampton is a team that has been playing well of late.
Thomas Tuchel will have some decisions to make. Nobody has been playing well lately, to be honest, and anyone can be dropped. The only guarantees are probably Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, and Kai Havertz. I am hoping he starts Mateo Kovacic and I think he will. He simply HAS to. I don’t think we have any other choice than to start Marcos Alonso either, and the captain can go back to the right.
Chelsea’s possible starting predicted Xl
Mendy, Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; James, Kovacic, Kante, Alonso; Ziyech, Mount, Havertz.
