It'll be interesting to see what he goes with. I think if Sarri uses any of the players who have just returned it will obviously be Kante and Hazard, and even then I don't see Hazard playing anywhere near the whole game.

Morata is far from ideal but none of the other strikers are ready and tuned to the system yet. 

Will be interesting to see whether Kepa comes in and gets the baptism of fire. I'd be inclined to do just that when the alternative is Caballero.

I suspect that the starting line-up will be as it was against City.  Those players have had the most time in the system.

    ?  Possibly Kepa

Azpi - Luiz - Rudiger - Alonso

Fabs - Jorginho - Barkley

Pedro - Morata - CHO

Possibly see Kante or Hazard for Fabs or CHO in the starting XI

Willian, Kante, Hazard on the bench to change the game or lock it down.

maybe another 1st team  start for Hudson-Odoi 😃😃

I think so.  He'd played every match in pre-season.  I think he was rested today so he would be fresh for Saturday.

My Starting XI:

                              Kepa

     Azpi   Christensen    Rudiger      Emerson

                             Jorginho

                    Kante            Barkley

          Pedro                                 Hazard

                               Morata

 

I sadly think we will probably see Alonso over Emerson though and probably Luiz over Christensen.

I think Bulka should start this. The game comes too soon for Kepa as well

From the players we have now. Taking into account new signings,pre season etc. I'd go for this as our starting lineup this season.


      CHO  Pedro  Eden
      WBM  Jorgi  Kova
Emerson  Rudi  Ampadu  Dave

                Harry

Certainly don't think Hazard will start. Be very curious who he goes with as the CB pairing. Unfortunately we can be sure that Alonso will start. Even though they both arrived at the same time, I do actually think Kante will start here since he's a fucking machine.

Biggest two question marks are whether he goes with RLC or Bakley as the third midfielder and which CB partnership he likes. Hazard & Kova will hopefully be ready for Arse next weekend.

I'd expect Barkley to keep his place and Luiz to partner Rudiger.

Kepa, Azpi, Rudiger, Christensen, Emerson, Jorginho, Fabregas, Barkley, Hudson-Odoi, Pedro, Morata.

I think this will be the starting lineup. Almost no adapting issue for a goal keeper so Kepa starts no doubt. Maybe Kante will start despite being a World Cup finalist his physical condition is not from this planet. Hazard, Willian, Kovacic and Giroud as super subs if anything goes south.

I’ll be over the moon if Ampadu starts but unfortunately I just don’t think he will.

Who is WBM and Harry???

Wee Baldy Man and Kepa Arrizabala (Like Dave I shortened his name to 'Arri - Harry!) My Brainfart Obviously

I cant see why we couldn't play Ampadu. IMHO hes been better than Luiz, Defense wise for sure. Luiz is going to give us brainfarts and I don't think we need to give ourselves any more hassle than we need to.

It's a tough decision because the younger players are the ones showing better signs in the back 4, I think it will be Azpi, Luiz, Rudgier, Alonso starting but for me Luiz needs to be dropped, Alonso too but this is something we have to live with until January at least.

Against City it was a mess, but I think Sarri even said that it was a difficult game for the defenders, this was because our midfield wasn't in the game at all for most part, maybe now we have a more solid midfield, the problems will not be so obvious, we will soon see I guess.
