The most difficult decision Thomas Tuchel have to take this weekend.

A huge game awaits at Stamford Bridge this weekend and ahead of Manchester united visit's to London, we've analysed all the key tactical discussion points for Thomas Tuchel to consider. 

Tuesday win against Atletico Madrid in Romania was the most impressive so far under Thomas Tuchel, The blues remain undefeated under the German teaching going into his sixth and toughest premier league assignment to date. On Sunday the German aims to join three predecessors; maurizio sarri, Luiz felipe scolari, and Jose Morinho, in going seven league game unbeaten. 

Thomas Tuchel is facing difficulty in selecting his starting lineup this weekend against the red devils. Especially who to lead the line, Oliver Giroud or Tammy Abraham.

The decision to use Olivier Giroud against Atletico's deep lying 6-3-1 bring a meaniful result to the blues, with the winner adding a new oldest knock-out stage goalscorer in Chelsea's history in the Europe's elite competition. With Tammy Abraham also hoping for a return against the red devils. 

The attacking option, with the Academy alumni Mason Mount and Callum Hudson Odoi who are currently enjoying hot form. Mason Mount is now having first home league goal of the season in his sights, with Hakim Ziyech and Kai Havertz both looking confident and purposeful when they come on. 

The defense line with the possibility of Thiago silva returning since the win at Tottenham, and should Azpilicueta be involved who will draw level with the 10th highest appearance maker McCreadier on 411 matches.
