‘You can never guess a Tuchel line up’

Thomas Tuchel’s eleven against Leeds United raised quite a few eyebrows with the change of formation – reverting back to a back four, as opposed to a back three that has served Chelsea really well in the past few matches.

The 4-3-3 formation sees sees Azpilicueta take the right back position and Ben Chilwell on the opposite side. The centre-back pairing is of no surprise as Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen maintain their place in the team after praise-worthy performances in recent match days.

American forward Christian Pulisic’s inclusion in the starting eleven also got Chelsea fans swinging ahead of the game.

He plays alongside in a front three consisting of Everton match-winner Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech, who will look to unleash his full potential this time.

All eyes will be on the attacking lineup. Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Ziyech and Pulisic will all look to make a difference in the final-third.
