Official lineup for Chelsea against Liverpool; Here is the 12 man selection of Bruno; Good changes made.
Chelsea will face Liverpool in a little while from now and this is the predicted lineup to face Liverpool as we look to uncover what Bruno will be using as his first XI against Liverpool.
It looks like Aubameyang will make the first XI in almost three months now finally as Bruno seems to take a different approach against Liverpool.
Here is how Football FanCast expects the Blues to line up tonight, with four changes from the side that started against Villa last time out.
(5-2-2-1) Kepa (GK); James (RWB), Chalobah (CB), Koulibaly (CB), Badiashile (CB), Chilwell (LWB); Fernandez (CM), Kante (CM); Madueke (RW), Felix (LW); Havertz (ST).
Edouard Mendy is seemingly not yet in contention for Chelsea, so it would be surprising to see anyone other than Kepa Arrizabalaga in between the sticks for the visit of Liverpool tonight.
The Spanish keeper could do little about either of Villa’s goals last weekend, as Chelsea’s back three formation left them regularly exposed to counterattacks, and the Blues cannot afford to set up in the same way against a dangerous Liverpool front three.
Therefore, Trevoh Chalobah and Benoit Badiashile return in the centre-back positions on either side of Kalidou Koulibaly, which allows Reece James to push up into his preferred wing-back role after he was inexplicably selected at centre-back by Potter.
Marc Cucurella drops out entirely after another disappointing display last Saturday, with his incredibly poor back header allowing Ollie Watkins to steal in and score the opening goal. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is another to be benched.
Noni Madueke also comes in from the start after another woeful performance from Mykhailo Mudryk who missed a huge gilt-edged chance in that clash against Villa, with Joao Felix starting again on the left wing.
Kai Havertz completes the attack, although all three of Chelsea’s forwards will have to be far more clinical in front of goal if the Blues are going to take their chances and take all three points against Liverpool tonight.
