How Thomas Tuchel Could Line Up Without Romelu Lukaku & Timo Werner

The injured duo of Lukaku and Timo Werner will surely provide a selection head ache for Thomas Tuchel, who is likely to stick with same 3-4-2-1 or 3-4-1-2 Formation.

Eduardo Mendy will keep his spot in goal, with Thiago Silva likely to start alongside Antonio Rudiger and Cesar Azpilicueta.

N'golo Kante and Jorginho are likely to start in the midfield, flanked by Marcos Alonso in the left wingback and James Reeces in the right wingback.

In attack, Kai Harvetz and Mason Mount or Christian Pulisic, if fit to start, are likely to start in the two man attacking midfield behind Hakim. Callum Hudson Odoi is another option that could be deployed behind Kai Harvetz in a two man forward.
