Chelsea will face off against Red Bull Salzburg at the Red Bull Arena this Tuesday night as they look to earn a good result on the road in the UEFA Champions League. The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United in the Premier League last weekend, so they would want to return to winning ways in Europe later this week.

Graham Potter will opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation and could make a few changes to his starting XI for this game. Kai Havertz and Conor Gallagher might get a chance to play from the start in this European clash away from home as Potter hopes to find the winning formula this week.

3-4-2-1 Chelsea Predicted Lineup To Face Red Bull Salzburg

Defence

Kepa Arrizabalaga will operate in between the sticks for the Blues after putting in a good performance versus the Red Devils last weekend. Potter could choose to name a back three of Cesar Azpilicueta, Trevoh Chalobah and Thiago Silva for this game as they try to keep the home team from scoring during the 90 minutes.

Marc Cucurella will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench. However, Kalidou Koulibaly and Wesley Fofana are unlikely to recover in time for this game as they are still recovering from their respective injuries.

Midfield

Jorginho will anchor the midfield alongside Mateo Kovacic as they try to establish their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park.

Ben Chilwell will fill in as the left wing-back while Conor Gallagher hopes to catch the eye as a makeshift right-back. Both of them need to make a few good overlapping runs out on the wide areas.

Both Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount will function as the free-flowing, attacking midfielders as they look to engineer a few clear-cut chances on the attacking end of the field.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the second half if needed.

Attack

Kai Havertz will lead the line for the West London club up top. The German attacker could get a chance to impress as the centre-forward while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gets a rest and drops to the bench.

Armando Broja will also have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on in the latter stages of the contest if Chelsea are in need of a goal by then.
