 Chelsea should utilize the wings and focus on scoring from 'open play.' Tuchel should select players that can deliver effectively from the wings. Callum Hudson Odoi and Mason Mount will be effective in the wing roles.

Goalkeeper: Mendy

Defenders: Trevoh Chalobah, Christensen, Antonio Rudiger

Midfielders: Reece James, Kovaçic, Reuben Loftus-Cheek, Ben Chilwell 

Attackers: Callum Hudon Odoi, Kai Havertz in the front as "false nine" and Mason Mount.
