Frank Lampard has taken Chelsea to stand on many occasions against Tottenham, so all eyes are on the new manager.
The Blues will travel to the London Stadium on Thursday as they battle Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspurs.
Chelsea who sacked their club legend, Frank Lampard, last month and appointed former PSG manager Thomas Tuchel seems to have discovered the form that crowned them champions of England in the past years, but they face strong opposition and fellow Londoners Tottenham Hotspurs.
Chelsea who currently sits on 7th place in the premier league table should have little to worry about when they face struggling Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham on Thursday night.
With Ngolo Kante and Hakeem Ziyech set to return back to the starting xi, the blues should ease past spurs and Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel might change his tactics to a 3-4-3 formation in order to ease past the white Lillies
Ngolo Kante who is no stranger to this encounter might make the starting xi after recovering from injury alongside Hakeem Ziyech who according to Tuchel was given a rest in their win against Burnley last Sunday.
With Ziyech back, it certainly makes sense if Olivier Giroud starts up front because of his ability to head home crosses which most times comes from the former Ajax forward.
With Hudson-Odoi in form and Mateo Kovacic’s ability to anchor the midfield, a 3-4-3 formation would be the suitable idea for Thomas Tuchel to use on Thursday. This formation will make room for youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi to start in the right wing-back position just behind Ziyech alongside Kante and Kovacic in the middle.
Marcos Alonso who scored against Burnley last Sunday will likely keep his place at right wing-back behind Christian Pulisic who has shown promising impacts after making his appearance from the bench In recent games.
With this line-up, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea should have no troubles having the upper hand against their London rivals on Thursday night in London.
