Chelsea Lineup That Can Help The Club Bounce Back To Winning This Weekend.

As part of the English premier league, Chelsea will face Southampton this coming weekend. Starting at exactly 17:00 East African Time, the match will begin. 

Chelsea has had two terrible games in a row, losing both of them. That's the English Premier League matchup versus Manchester City, as well as the UEFA Champions League matchup versus Juventus. 

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel, on the other hand, can make a few tweaks to his team this weekend and get their winning streak back on track. 

The following is a possible lineup for Tuchel to employ against Southampton on Wednesday. 

Goalkeeper 

Ever since he joined Chelsea during the 2017 summer transfer window, Eduard Mendy has performed admirably and is deserving of a spot in the starting lineup. 

Defense 

Tuchel should utilize Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger as his two center backs rather than Ben Chilwell and Azpiliqueta, who both play full back. 

With more players available to attack and drive the ball forward, Chelsea will be strengthened. 

Midfield 

N'Golo Kante tested positive for Covid-19 and will not be eligible for selection because of that, Thomas Tuchel could play Ruben Loftus Cheek or Ross Barkley in place of the injured Jorginho. Loftus Cheek and Barkley have been outstanding despite coming off the bench in the last few games. 

Together with Mateo Kovacic, they'll try to take control of midfield. 

Attacking 

Injuries have ruled out Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic, thus they will not be eligible for selection. 

The two of them have played critical roles for the group. Callum Hudson Odoi should be Tuchel's right winger, with either Hakim Ziyech or Kai Havertz playing the left. 

Thomas Tuchel should deploy Romelu Lukaku as a center forward.
