Courtois

Rudiger - Luiz - Cahill

Azpilicueta - Kanté - Fabregas - Alonso

Pedro - Batshuayi - Willian

Caballero; Christensen, Player X; Kenedy, Boga; Musonda, Morata

 

Something like this I think.

This is so sad. Premier League champions, mind you.

Last year's squad wasn't much to write home about, and now the squad's even weaker.

Chels seems to be stuck in this strange space I find hard to define.

Therefore I don't have any expectations.

We'll see what happens.

We're going to resort to using our record signing out of position. 

Arsenal-esque. 

Already dreading it. The pressure will quickly build on him if he puts in poor performances while out of position and his confidence will be shot.

Start Morata on nr.9 position or put him on the bench :) Don't waste his talent on the wing ... what is the point of having Musonda&Baker in the squad when we don't have the ba**s to start them in home match against Burnley? Put Musonda in starting eleven and enjoy his trickery, we will have the ball in our feet most of the time anyway :) Fabregas is the biggest problem anyway, his lack of workrate could punish us in counter attacks ..

He's already mentioned how the criticism after the Arsenal game has affected him. 

It would be unfair Batshuayi to leave him on the bench after the preseason he's had. And I don't think we have the personnel to go 2 up top. 

Basically, someone's getting screwed.

Personally Burnley at home is a perfect game to start morata up top, might bag a couple of goals and get his confidence up straight away. What will happen:: bats will start, he will stand still, he will shoot a lot and miss, he will try take on every player on field, he will not pass, he will b dog shit. Morata will come on on 76 mins presented with a good opportunity he will miss.Because he's just come on he will get absolutely smashed for it. GG the end.

I really dont like the idea of Dave on the rwb, rudiger fits way better, having the physical and the crossing ability it's a no brainier for me, but still not optimal.

I wanted to both strikers upfront, moratas headers might come to be useful in this game, but unfortunately we are still missing a CM to be able to properly change to a 3-5-2 formation when required

Morata isn't going to start, and I don't think that's screwing him. Conte has said he needs more time to adjust to the system and he also needs time to adjust to the league.

If Batshuayi continues to progress, Conte will have a decision to make, but for now, I think it's an easy choice to start Batshuayi.

Can't believe the club will start the league with only 2 fit mids. And when you know they are Cesc and Kante, who don't play so good next to each other, the situation is even more f8cked up... 

Hope at least Boga or Musonda starts, prefer to see them than playing Morata out of position. The bench also gonna be fun.

Do Chelsea have enough players to fill up the bench?

No.

Courtois - Cahill, Luiz, Rüdiger - Alonso, Cesc, Kante, Azpi - Willian, Morata, Batshuayi

As it stands that would be the most likely starting lineup. Leaves Caballero, Christensen, Musonda, Boga and Tomori on the bench out of players who can even remotely be considered a part of the first team squad and then maybe filling the rest with U18s.

If it were up to me I'd replace Morata there by Musonda or Boga to start which would allow for a better impact sub later in the game with Alvaro coming on, not to mention actually getting to play him in his preferred position up front instead of on the wings.

Either way it's fucking ridiculous, the starting lineup will have two league debutants for the club and apart from the backup goalie the bench will have zero PL appearances prior to today. :lol:

Very nervous for this game. Players are not sharp and a Bit rusty tackles can be very poor this stage of the season a injury to cesc or kante and we are fucked deffo if kante gets injured.
