Here is how Tuchel should lineup his team vs Southampton to help Lukaku end his 4 games goal-drought

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has now gone 4 games in all competitions without scoring a goal for the Stamford Bridge club despite starting the season with 4 goals in 4 games in all competitions for the Blues following his big-money transfer return to the club in the summer.

However, his struggles to score in his last 4 appearances as come as a result of the limited number of ball supplies he has gotten from his teammates in those games. The big Belgian striker has not had many chances in front of goals in their recent games due to his teammates' poor passing ability and also how he has been man-marked by his opponent's defenders in those games.

But for Lukaku to end his goal drought tomorrow against Southampton, Tuchel will have to use a more direct and attacking approach to the game and also select a strong lineup for the game. And we have suggested the best way Tuchel should lineup his team to help Lukaku end his goal-drought in the game.

Below is the best way Tuchel should line up his team to help Lukaku score tomorrow.

Formation: 3-4-3.


Mendy: Mendy has conceded a goal in each of their last two games and he would look to keep a clean sheet tomorrow.

Central Defenders.

Rudiger and his defensive partners would look to help his team to keep a clean sheet tomorrow after conceding in their last two games.

Rudiger, Silva, Christensen


Chilwell, Azpilicueta.


Ruben Loftus-Cheek has been brilliant in all his appearances from the bench so far, he adds a lot of power to the midfield. So I think that he would be a good option in the midfield alongside Jorginho.


Chelsea's attack has lack energy and force in recent games, and Werner's partnership with Lukaku and Havertz would make it more strong.

This attack would allow Chelsea to play a more direct and attacking football and create many chances up front, this would give Lukaku enough chances to score.
