Alonso has to start over Emerson because our chances of winning increase for 66.66% with him in the team :readthemessage:

if we play a back 3 again then yes

and at this point, Emerson has been so poor lately I do not care if we start Alonso even as a trad fullback I guess, PERHAPS, sigh

i reallllly am so sick of talking about LB's for the past 6 years or so :( (minus that one Conte title year when we used wingbacks and Alonso played superbly)

Would pretty much like to line up like this. Need to avoid the mistakes we made in the last month of pushing the same players over and over. we play 3 in 7 days. Need to rotate and refresh.

TEAM NEWS - Lampard said Azpi had a small issue (not sure had or has, thanks to the press conference stream cutting off early!), which is why he came off at Spurs. Other than that, a few bumps and bruises for the players.

If we're going to play the back 3 again at Arsenal, better off saving him for that one and play Emerson on Thursday. Rotation needed with 4 games in 11 days.

CHELSEA VS SOUTHAMPTON PREVIEW | TEAM NEWS & KEY PLAYERS

https://eplindex.com/84375/chelsea-vs-southampton-preview-team-news-key-players.html

Chelsea showed impressive fight at the weekend, as they bounced back from a poor run to beat rivals Tottenham. The win was made all the more impressive as it was away from home. The Blues now have a great chance to consolidate their position in the top four with a home fixture against relegation-threatened Southampton. Frank Lampard will want to improve his team’s record at Stamford Bridge and Boxing Day offers a good opportunity to do that.

The ambition will be to finish in the top four, which would represent a good season for Lampard in his debut season as Chelsea boss. The expectations were low at the beginning of the season, with many in the media stating that a top six finish would be a success. However, the rookie manager has managed to introduce a number of young players into the first team and the quality has remained at a high level. There will now be an opportunity to strengthen in January and it will be interesting to see if the club decide to do any business.

For Southampton, they will be pleased to have moved out of the relegation zone before Christmas Day. It was looking very worrying for them following the convincing 9-0 defeat against Leicester. Since then, they have managed to improve and pick up a few key results. The players are clearly playing for Ralph Hasenhuttl and that has shown that the club have been correct to stick with their popular head coach. Danny Ings remains the key player for the Saints, with his incredible goal scoring record a big reason for not being cut adrift. This fixture is one that they can approach with freedom, as they won’t be expected to win. That said, they have the quality to cause problems for the home side.

INTERESTING STATS

Chelsea kept their first away clean sheet of the season against Tottenham. Lampard will be hoping that their defensive record improves over the coming months.

Southampton’s last 16 Premier League goals have been scored by Englishmen. This is the longest run in the competition since QPR between March 1996 and September 2011 (17 goals).

KEY MEN

Mount

This works well for our rotation. Play the 4-2-3-1 with James, Emerson, Jorginho, and CHO all in. 

Then play the 3-4-3 against Arsenal with Alonso, Dave, Kovacic, etc back in rested.

Rotate. We need him for Arsenal.

Would switch to 433 for Southampton and back to 3 at the back for Arsenal

Likely 4-2-3-1 since Kovacic is suspended.
