Expected Chelsea line-up vs Aston Villa, 3 players injured
Chelsea travels to the Midlands for Sunday’s Premier Association game against Aston Estate.
Graham Potter’s men have won four consecutive matches following the September international break, however, they have experienced exorbitant injuries along the way.
In the present press conference, Potter confirmed that Wesley Fofana won’t return to action until after the World Cup following his knee injury against AC Milan.
N’Golo Kante is likewise sidelined for the long term after a crisp hamstring issue while Reece James has gone to see an expert after a knee issue of his own.
This is the way Chelsea is supposed to line-facing Aston Estate:
Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga has been gaining confidence with each appearance for Chelsea. He has looked assured in objective for Potter and there appears to be no necessity for him to trade places with Edouard Mendy, who was the best option before his rib injury last month.
Defense: Chelsea doesn’t have a lot of space for rotation with injuries hampering the crew. Trevoh Chalobah, Thiago Silva, and Kalidou Koulibaly are supposed to maintain their places in central defense. With James out, captain Cesar Azpilicueta ought to open into the conservative back spot and we could see Ben Chilwell being supplanted by Marc Cucurella in the left wing-back position.
Midfield: Jorginho has not been at his best in recent times yet continues to remain normal under Potter. Yet again the Euro 2020 winner ought to get the backing and he could be matched with Mateo Kovacic, who is the most experienced midfield star in the ranks after Kante.
Attack: Potter played a different attack against Wolves last weekend with his normal starters being refreshed. We don’t see that happening again. Mason Mount, Raheem Sterling, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ought to make up the front three against Steven Gerrard’s group. Mount has hit a purple fix over the last two outings with three assists while winning a penalty for his club. Aubameyang has likewise been in fine scoring structure, registering an objective in every one of his last three appearances. The former Barcelona star has finally found his sweet spots.
