Moisés Caicedo and Conor Gallagher have been playing as the defensive midfield pairing. Cole Palmer, Noni Madueke, and Mykhailo Mudryk are operating as the main attacking midfielders while Nicolas Jackson leads the line as the striker.

Chelsea Recent Form and Tactics

Mauricio Pochettino has been strict in the use of a 4-2-3-1 setup all season. He has recently made a minor change that sees Cucurella invert from left back which has transformed the team entirely. In the two full matches played with this new setup, they have won with an aggregate scoreline of 7-0.

Goalscoring has not been an issue for the Blues who have netted nine times in their past three fixtures. After a poor run defensively they have now kept two clean sheets in a row and have been in control of recent matches, completely nulling their opposition offensively.

Chelsea Injuries to Consider

It isn’t Chelsea if there are no injuries. Despite that, the latest injury update is dramatically reduced from recent weeks with only five players completely sidelined. Ben Chilwell, Carney Chukwuemeka, Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia, and Enzo Fernandez are those who remain inactive.

Malo Gusto has been removed entirely signalling his return to fitness alongside Axel Disasi. Reece James and Lesley Ugochukwu are in full training so they may feature on the bench. Robert Sanchez remains in partial training for another week.
