We don’t have a lot time to discuss the 5-0 win at Wrexham, as a result of now we have one other sport developing simply three days later!
Simply because the clock strikes midnight on Saturday/Sunday this weekend within the UK at the very least, Chelsea shall be kicking off in opposition to their excellent pals, Brighton!
The place will Moises Caicedo be? That’s the massive query.
This can be a pre-season pleasant, however there may be about to be nothing pleasant about this sport! Chelsea followers and Brighton followers have been constantly bantering over current months about numerous issues that began with Marc Cucurella final summer time. Then there was Graham Potter, Levi Colwill, and now Caicedo!
I need to see some BIG tackles going on this weekend lads!
Mauricio Pochettino shall be drumming it into his gamers how a lot harder this sport shall be from Thursday morning. He’ll need to see enhancements and no sloppy giveaways. Sure it’s a pleasant, however now we have momentum to construct and confidence to maintain up.
Will Pochettino go along with a barely extra skilled group because of the above? Or will we see him stick with his phrase of giving primarily kids an opportunity to step up? Solely time will inform, however under I’ve had a crack at a predicted Xl regardless…
I believe we’ll see a barely stronger beginning Xl with a few of the ‘senior’ gamers coming again in. Trevoh Chalobah was drained within the final sport and Thiago Silva wasn’t fairly proper, however I believe Thiago and Levi Colwill may come into the beginning again line this weekend, with Ian Maatsen given an opportunity to indicate what he can do at left again.
Reece James ought to hopefully be a part of the squad by then however no phrase but if he shall be match sufficient to play/begin.
Andrey Santos I really feel is value taking one other take a look at alongside Enzo Fernandez with a key determination to be made on him.
Kepa Arrizabalaga may get the beginning, though I’d not rule out Jamie Cumming, Gaga Slonina, or Lucas Bergstrom beginning once more if Poch needs to check out them.
It’ll be harsh to depart Cesare Casadei and Angelo Gabriel out, however perhaps introduce them each at half time. I’d wish to see Christopher Nkunku within the ten function, and a few minutes in legs for Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke could be good.
Brighton will current us with a massively robust problem this weekend, however one by which we must always welcome with open arms. We have now to check ourselves at this stage, and we additionally must see a few of these fringe and younger gamers up in opposition to higher opposition so as to see if they’re able to do a job for us this season in our squad, or whether or not now we have to dip additional into the switch market in addition to the priorities we’re already engaged on and .
Trying ahead to this one once more!
