Chelsea Formidable Lineup Which is Capable of Defeating Manchester City This Season

In recent seasons, the rivalry between Chelsea and Manchester City has been particularly heated. The Blues has started their Campaign well this season in all competitions, ranging from the English Premier league, Champions league to the Carabao Cup. They played their opening match in the English Carabao Cup yesterday against Aston Villa, and won the game on penalties.

Chelsea's star player Timo Werner scored for his side just few minutes into the second half before a goal from Aston Villa cancelled it out. A thumping header from Villa’s 19-year-old striker Cameron Archer soon equalised and it remained 1-1 at full-time, thereby heading into the penalty shoot out.

This goal was Timo Werner's first goal in eleven Chelsea games. Thomas Tuchel's later side won the penalty shoot out 4-3 as their shot-stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga saved the day, and saw them through to the next round of the English Carabao Cup.

Thomas Tuchel's side are now currently set to face their English Premier league rivals Manchester City during the weekend.

However, Thomas Tuchel's side have been handed a massive boost in their aims to pull clear of Guardiola’s side just six games in. This boost come in the form of Manchester city defenders who picked up injuries earlier, Aymeric Laporte and John Stones got injured while on international duty with their national teams. As per latest reports, the two star defenders are unavailable for the match against Chelsea as well as champions league game against Paris Saint-Germain in the next few weeks. With this massive boost for Thomas Tuchel's side, let's take a look at a Formidable Lineup which is capable of defeating Manchester City.

Using The Three-Four-Three Formation

With this formation, Chelsea's top striker Romelu Lukaku would stand at the number 9 position, while Havertz and Mason Mount will play from the wing. The midfield position would consist of Ngolo Kante and Jorginho at Central Midfield while Marcos Alonso and Reece James playing full-backs. The defence line would see Rudiger, Christensen and Azpilicueta stand side by side at the center-backs, while covering Mendy.
