Cucurella To Start, Chilwell On The Bench: Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Tottenham
After getting off to a solid, if not spectacular, start against Everton in the season opener, Chelsea face a much sterner test this weekend when they take on Spurs.
Thomas Tuchel’s side beat their London rivals in all four fixtures last season but Antonio Conte has got his team well drilled, and this could be a tightly- contested game.
With both managers expected to start with three at the back, the key will be winning the one-on-one battles right across the pitch. This are our predicted line-up:
GK – Edouard Mendy, RWB– Reece James, CB– Cesar Azpilicueta, CB – Thiago Silva, CB– Kalidou Koulibaly, LWB– Marc Cucurella, CM – N’Golo Kante, CM – Jorginho, RW– Mason Mount, CF – Kai Havertz, LW – Raheem Sterling
