Chelsea will look to get back to winning ways in Sunday’s game against Leeds United at Elland Road.
The Blues dominated proceedings in the London derby against Spurs last week, however only came out of things with a point following Harry Kane’s late equaliser.
Thomas Tuchel operated a fluid and unique system at Stamford Bridge, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount especially thriving in the new look system.
However, the Blues could turn back to the recognised back three this weekend, with our predicted lineup for the game against Leeds.
GK and Defence
Edouard Mendy made a brilliant save just before Spurs’ late equaliser at the end, and his position in the squad is more than secure for this one.
With there still being no breakthrough on the Wesley Fofana front, Cesar Azpilicueta will return to the starting lineup as captain at Elland Road.
Fixtures are yet to pick up in the early stages of the season, so Thiago Silva should still be fresh and okay to participate again.
The centre-backs will be completed by Kalidou Koulibaly, who showed his quality again in an emphatic display against Spurs.
Reece James scored almost instantly after being moved back to wing-back on Sunday, and the Blues will look to get the attacking best out of him on Sunday.
Jorginho may have been at fault for the first conceded goal last week, although his great performance will still see him start again against Leeds.
Injuries have ruled N’golo Kante and likely Mateo Kovacic out of the game, there is a big choice to be made to partner the Italy internatonal. While Ruben Loftus-Cheek starred against Spurs, Conor Gallagher will be chosen to partner in midfield, being handed his first start for the club.
Marc Cucurella will look to build on his impressive performance last week with another start against Leeds, with Ben Chilwell still not quite at match fitness.
The Chelsea attack will have a familiar look to the last two weeks, with Mason Mount occupying the free-roaming role in the attack against an opponent he has had a lot of success against before.
Raheem Sterling will try again in his quest to open his Chelsea league account, with him missing a glorious chance last week.
Kai Havertz is another man who missed a great opportunity to win the game for the Blues at the weekend, although his work in the front three was enough to see him start again.
