Chelsea Vs West Ham United: Talking Tactics
Thomas Tuchel will probably opt for the 3-4-3 formation; however, he could make a couple of changes for the upcoming encounter as Wesley Fofana looks likely to make his debut this weekend.
David Moyes might opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation as Michael Antonio leads the line against the Blues’ backline. Lucas Paqueta could come on in the second half to create an impact if required.
The Blues remain without the services of N’Golo Kante, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marcos Alonso, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang as they recover from their respective injuries. Reece James could be available for selection if he has recovered from his illness whereas Conor Gallagher has completed his suspension, so he could feature in the midfield.
Chelsea Predicted XI
Mendy; Fofana, Silva, Koulibaly; James, Gallagher, Jorginho, Cucurella; Mount, Sterling, Havertz
West Ham United
The Hammers are also dealing with injury setbacks with the likes of Ben Johnson, Nayef Aguerd and Craig Dawson finding themselves in the treatment room. Emerson Palmieri could start in the backline in some capacity and Gianluca Scamacca may return to the substitute bench if he recovers from his illness.
West Ham United Predicted XI
Fabianski; Coufal, Kehrer, Zouma, Palmieri; Rice, Soucek; Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals; Antonio
