Chelsea Vs Leeds United: Possible Lineup For The Blues As They Aim To Continue Impressive Form

The Blues will host high-flying Leeds United later today at Stamford Bridge on the bounce of an epic 0-4 hammering of Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Wednesday night.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will relish the options at his disposal going into tonight’s clash against the Peacocks, with all first team players available after enduring a rough start to the campaign.

Frank Lampard will likely favor his 4-2-3-1 formation again tonight, with the presence of first choice players.

We shall take a look into the possible lineup for the Blues against ‘stubborn’ Leeds tonight.

Edouard Mendy

Mendy will start in goal for the Blues today as Chelsea’s number one since sealing the position with a number of stellar performances to cause a breath of fresh air for Chelsea after Kepa’s woeful outing last term.

The Senegalese added another clean sheet to his credit again on Wednesday against Sevilla making it nine for his Blue career.

Ben Chilwell

Chilwell was rested during Blues win at Sevilla on Wednesday and is expected to hold the left-back for Chelsea against a free-scoring Leeds United at Stamford Bridge.

Thiago Silva

Thiago Silva has become central to Chelsea solidity at the back this season, with the 36-year-old bringing a wealth of experience and maturity to the heart of Blues defense.

As expected, the Brazilian is to be paired with another at center-back tonight as they look to halt and neutralize attacking threats from the visitors.

Kurt Zouma

Zouma is set to partner Thiago Silva at center-back for a second consecutive time in the Premier League after the Brazilian missed Blues visit to St James’ Park but was available for Tottenham clash last week.

Zouma is currently ahead of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen in the pecking order and expected to further his starting role tonight in partnership with highly-experienced Thiago Silva.

Reece James

The 20-year-old was an unused sub at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Wednesday after featuring against Tottenham last Sunday, and is geared for Leeds visit to Stamford Bridge later on tonight.

N’Golo Kante

The Frenchman was quite impressive on Wednesday when called upon in the second-half, sprinting yards into Sevilla half before dashing a scintillating cross to countryman, Olivier Giroud for the striker’s hatrick.

The 29-year-old is to be paired in holding midfield with another defensive half for tonight’s clash.

Matteo Kovacic

Kovacic was present in Blues win over Sevilla, providing a nice set up pass for Olivier Giroud’s brace, before coming off in the second half and would once again hold the center position in Chelsea half tonight.

Kai Havertz

Havertz is expected to link Blues attack tonight after impressing midweek at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan with a fine run upfront before providing a perfectly timed pass for Giroud’s opener.

Christian Pulisic

The 22-year-old will spearhead Blues attack against Leeds after returning from injury last Sunday at home against Tottenham and impressing in Sevilla mauling midweek.

Hakim Ziyech

The Moroccan has enjoyed a fairly impressive start to his Blue life and will start tonight as he attempts to attain his creative heights at Stamford Bridge against the Peacocks.

Timo Werner

Timo Werner will take center role in attack for the Blues after weeks operating from the flanks with Pulisic out injured.

Werner is largely tipped by pundits to succeed at Stamford Bridge after the 24-year-old’s exploits with former club RB Leipzig last season.
