Leicester v Chelsea (PL) Tues 19th Jan 2021 20:15 GMT


Recommended Posts


James in for Azpi and Kante for Jorgino. CHO in for either Pulicic or Ziyech. 

Silva is our best CB by far but can he play another game so soon, especially against a quick side like Leicester with Vardy's pace? Plenty of decisions for Lamps to ponder over.

I think Silva has to play unless he is genuinely puffing.  Agree with your other changes. Pulisic would be the one I'd drop. I suspect Giroud will be benched too. I'd drop Kovacic too and bring in Gilmour or Havertz.

It has to be this:

 

------------------------------------Mendy

James-------------------Zouma-----------Silva----------Chilwell

------------------------------------Kanté

------------------------Mount------------Havertz

--------------Ziyech------------------------------Hudson-Odoi

---------------------------------Abraham

 

The one exception is of course for Reece James. I sincerely hope that the injury scare was just that, with no future ramifications possible whatsoever.

That has to be the team. Midfield has been awful, and that 3 hasnt really been used as much as i think all of us were hoping. Think we have only seen it against wolves and burnley.

Cho and tammy have to play aswell, only 2 that look to have chemistry.

Vardy limped off the pitch today. They should hold him out of Tuesday’s match....it’s the right thing to do!

I would be surprised if Vardy starts, we will probably start Perez as a false nine.

Won't make a difference. Even when teams are missing their star striker, we still struggle and lose.


yes, hence the games against arsenal, city, and so on

Mount         Billy

Ziyech           Havertz            Callum

Giroud

There is a conversation that needs to be had about Giroud starting upfront & us resulting to crossing the ball. Would be interesting the stats on the number of crosses compared to when Tammy/Werner starts.

He more often that not scores, but we are too one dimensional.

Agreed, my reason for selecting Giroud was more that i consider him a better hold up merchant than Tammy, and i just feel that with his current lack of Confidence Timo would find it tough against a side like Leicester, But yes we can be too one dimensional with Giroud up top.

Another big test for Frank. Leicester are in great form and honestly I don't think we are the favorites here. That is just the reality at this moment.

Every single one of Maddison, Barnes and Tielemans is a massively underrated player, and even if Vardy doesn't play they could cause problems for our defenders. Also with Perez and Under waiting on the bench they are posing a serious goalscoring threat. 

If we don't show any signs of improvement this could turn into another bad day...

Hoping for something like this:

                         Mendy

James      Zouma       Silva      Chilwell

                          Kante 

             Havertz         Mount

  Ziyech            Abraham         CHO

Our results against top6 oppositions has been poor under frank. Sadly, I can’t see this changing. We are far from looking like a team that is ticking. Best we can hope for is a draw here.

 

anyhow 

mendy 

james rudiger silva chillwell 

havertz kante mount 

Ziyech Tammy CHO 

would be my team
