Chelsea embark on a challenging series of Premier League matches with a visit to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Monday evening. Mauricio Pochettino will have to manage without several key players as they face Ange Postecoglou’s league-leading team. The Blues will come into the match on the back of a 2-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers in the EFL Cup fixture.
Mauricio Pochettino will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could make a host of changes to the first XI for this game. Levi Colwill and Thiago Silva will the get the nod over Axel DIsasi and Benoit Badiashile.
4-3-3 Chelsea Predicted XI Vs Tottenham
Robert Sanchez will continue to function as a goal keeper for the Blues after keeping a clean sheet in his last outing. Thiago Silva will form the customary centre-half partnership alongside Levi Colwill as they try to keep the opposition attackers at bay during the game.
Marc Cucurella will fill in as the left-back while Reece James looks to catch the eye as the right-back. Both of them will be given the freedom to make some overlapping runs out on the flanks.
Moises Caicedo, Enzo Fernandez and Conor Gallagher will play as the holding midfielders as they try to dictate the tempo of the game at the centre of the park.
Lesley Ugochukwu will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to impress in the second half if required.
Cole Palmer will fill in as the right winger while Raheem Sterling tries to produce an influential display on the opposite flank.
Nicolas Jackson will spearhead Chelsea’s attack on his own up top. He would be eager to find the back of the net and put his name on the scoresheet in this away encounter.
Armando Broja will have to take a spot on the bench and might come on in the latter stages of the match if Chelsea are in need of a goal by then.
