Premier League

Why Potter should consider starting Fofana or Aubameyang ahead of Havertz against Leicester City.

It is another English Premier League fixture for the Chelsea squad after their victory against Leeds last weekend at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea's squad will be facing Leicester City today by 16:00 and one pattern which Potter should consider deploying in Chelsea's lineup today is starting Fofana or Aubameyang and resting Havertz.


To save Havertz from fatigue or injury concerns: Starting Kai Havertz against Leicester City in today's English Premier League fixture might become very burdensome to the German attacker. This might affect his (Havertz's) performance today, courtesy of the fact that Havertz needs to be rested after playing the UEFA Champions League's return leg against Borussia Dortmund. Benching Havertz for Fofana will yield to Chelsea's manager, Graham Potter, from overstressing Havertz which might lead to fatigue or injury problems.

To help Fofana and Aubameyang to adapt to the team as well: The British and Chelsea football club's head coach, Graham Potter, should adopt the pattern of rotating Chelsea's attacking position, especially the striking position to enable the likes of Fofana and Aubameyang to blend up with Chelsea's squad. This rotation will save the attackers of Chelsea football club, the stress of adaptation with each other in case Kai Havertz sustains an injury. And also help them avoid the consequences of what Chelsea passed through in the midfield position when the likes of Kante, Zakaria, and Kovacic sustained an injury. For instance, the likes of Koulibally, Wesley Fofana, Chalobah, James, Chilwell, Cucurella, Azpilicueta, and Badiashile held up Chelsea's defense lineup even in the absence of Thiago Silva. So Chelsea's head coach should stop the frequent featuring of Havertz alone at the playing expenses of Datro Fofana and Aubameyang.

Rotating them will make the Chelsea team formidable in the attacking position despite the absence of any attacker.
