Chelsea v WBA (PL) SAT 3rd Apr 2021 12:30 GMT


Recommended Posts


Couple of weeks to wait on this so will hope everyone comes back from the internationals ok.

Would expect big sam to park the bus and hope to counter us will quick players and hit us on set plays, so not expecting us to be able to use our pace as well against them. A good game for Jorginho and Kovacic imo with Kante used in europe. Our front 3 should be looking at individual ability to create and adding height to us.

Am guessing TT will want Silva to have a game before Porto then rest him the following week. 

With all that said maybe we will see:

 

Mendy

 

Zouma

Silva

Rudiger

 

CHO

Jorginho

Kovacic

Alonso

 

Ziyech 

Tammy (or perhaps Giroud)

Havertz

We really need to get the three points here as the following week Palace away in the what will inevitably be a heavily rotated side (due to the first leg Wednesday second leg Tuesday turnover in the Porto tie) has banana skin written all over it.

Hopefully Jorginho can play.

Even if he cannot I doubt we see Kante used. Unless we stuff or get stuffed by Porto in the first leg i expect both this match and Palace to have players used to save legs for the CL.

We don't need to save players for CL in this one. It's a Saturday lunchtime to Wednesday turnover which allows more than enough recovery time (although that said I wouldn't start Kante as this one is a match for the Jorgi/Kova axis).

The following week vs Palace is where we will need to rotate accordingly as that's a Saturday match sandwiched inbetween a Wednesday-Tuesday CL schedule.

Have to take in to account the travel and millage any international games have put on our players too.

3 international matches over 7 days. Does not matter we have a gap from here till wednesday, I now expect a lot of rotation here and for palace with players not involved or not much involved for their nationals to start here, and for TT to protect Jorginho and Kovacic for porto with Kante injured.

 

Mendy (did not got away)

 

Azpi (not selected for Spain)

Silva (south american games no go this time)

Zouma (france reserve)

 

CHO (not selected)

Gilmour (rest Jorginho)

Mount (rest kovacic)

Alonso (not selected)

 

Anjorin (rest Ziyech)

Abraham (not selected)

Pulisic (rest Havertz)
