Actual Squad Situation
Chelsea earned their first Premier League victory of the year after defeating Luton Town 3-0. Raheem Sterling scored twice and Nicolas Jackson also scored in the match.
**Players Not Available**
However, as many as 10 players were absent during the Luton match: Mykhaylo Mudryk (unspecified), Romeo Lavia (fitness), Wesley Fofana (knee), Benoit Badiashile (thigh), Marcus Bettinelli (unspecified), Christopher Nkunku (knee), Carney Chukwuemeka (knee), Reece James (thigh), Armando Broja (knee), and Trevoh Chalobah (thigh).
Although Mudryk and Badiashile may have a remote possibility of playing in the forthcoming match, Pochettino is probably going to avoid taking needless risks given the situation. This can be a chance for young athletes to demonstrate their abilities.
Potential Lineup Modifications
Bashir Humphreys and Marc Cucurella might come off the bench to replace Bashir Petrovic, the recently acquired goalkeeper. Conor Gallagher, Malo Gusto, and Levi Colwill might all keep their spots in the starting lineup in midfield.
Lesley Ugochukwu and Ian Maatsen are pushing for more minutes, so expect adjustments elsewhere. Diego Moreira and Noni Madueke could play wide roles.
Deivid Washington, a promising Brazilian prospect, was welcomed by Chelsea, but Mason Burstow could have the chance to spearhead the assault.
Potential Lineup for the Game
In addition to Petrovic in goal, Chelsea’s starting lineup might also contain Humphreys, Colwill, and Cucurella on defense, Gusto, Ugochukwu, Gallagher, and Maatsen in the middle of the field, and Madueke, Burstow, and Moreira up front.…… Continue Your Reading
