Chelsea predicted lineup vs Tottenham: Match Preview

After a slew of disappointing results, Chelsea sacked manager Frank Lampard, and appointed ex-PSG boss Thomas Tuchel at the Stamford Bridge hotseat. Tuchel managed his first game as Chelsea boss in a 0-0 draw against Wolves. Although the result might not be what the Blues fans expected, they would’ve been pleased to see the dominating attacking football played by Tuchel’s new-look Chelsea side. With a staggering 840+ passes made, Tuchel has already started imprinting his tactical ideas on this young Chelsea team that has the potential to be serial winners.

Against Tottenham, Tuchel will be counting on the experience of players like Thiago Silva, Cesar Azpilicueta and also the youthful exuberance of stars Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Reece James. It will be interesting to watch what is expected to be an intense tactical battle between two coaches who seem to have opposing ideas on how to approach a game of football, as Jose Mourinho’s more pragmatic style clashes against Tuchel’s possession-oriented gameplay.

In their most recent fixture, Tottenham suffered a 1-3 defeat at home to PL champions Liverpool, with goals from Roberto Firmino, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane highlighting an array of defensive problems that Mourinho will need to address before facing off against his former employers. Spurs captain Hugo Lloris will be hoping for a better outing against the Blues after a dismal 90 minutes against Liverpool.

Chelsea predicted lineup vs Tottenham: Latest Team News

Thomas Tuchel will have an injury-free squad to choose from for this London derby, with a full complement of players available for selection. All eyes will be on Mason Mount, who was dropped from the matchday squad last week after being a regular under former manager Frank Lampard.

Mourinho will have some injury problems to contend with, as he will miss forward Harry Kane. Kane has been vital for Spurs’ performances this season, scoring 12 goals and providing 11 assists in 19 Premier League games so far. The England national team captain is expected to miss out on this important clash after sustaining an ankle injury during the Liverpool game. New signing Sergio Reguilon is also not expected to feature. The Spanish left-back who was signed from Real Madrid is recovering form a muscle injury. Midfielders Giovanni Lo Celso and Dele Alli are also expected to sit this one out, with the latter linked with a move away from North London of late.

Chelsea predicted lineup vs Tottenham

It is still early days under the Thomas Tuchel regime, and the German tactician might want to make changes to his side that drew against Wolves, to better assess his squad. With Chelsea having a full squad of players available, rotation seems to be inevitable. Tuchel has used a 3-4-2-1 set up, and we expect him to continue with this against Tottenham. Thiago Silva is expected to play in central defence alongside Antonio Rudiger and captain Cesar Azpilicueta. Jorginho and Kovacic could partner up in central midfield while Marcos Alonso and Callum Hudson-Odoi could provide width from wing-back position. Expect a front-three of Mason Mount, Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic. This is our Chelsea predicted lineup vs Tottenham:

Formation: 3-4-2-1

GK: Edouard Mendy

LCB: Cesar Azpilicueta (c)

RCB: Antonio Rudiger

CB: Thiago Silva

CM: Jorginho

CM: Mateo Kovacic

LWB: Marcos Alonso

RWB: Callum Hudson-Odoi

CAM: Mason Mount

CAM: Christian Pulisic

ST: Timo Werner

This is expected to be a tight affair between two sides that seem to be equal on paper. Spurs will miss the creativity and goal-threat of Harry Kane and Chelsea will need more time adjusting to Tuchel’s style of play and start grinding out consistent results. We predict a 2-2 draw.
