Chelsea vs Everton: Potential Lineups That Graham Potter May Use Ahead Of The Game



Chelsea are set to face Everton in the Premier League this weekend and with Graham Potter at the helm, the Blues have a plethora of options when it comes to their starting lineup. Here are two potential lineups that Potter could use to take on the Toffees:

Option 1:

Formation: 3-4-3

Goalkeeper: Kepa

Defenders: Fofana, Koulibaly, and Cucurella

Midfielders: Reece James, Enzo Fernandez, Kovacic, Ben Chilwell

Forwards: Joao Felix, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech

This lineup would see Tuchel deploy a back three consisting of Azpilicueta, Silva, and Rudiger, with James and Chilwell operating as wing-backs. In midfield, Kante and Jorginho would offer solidity and control, while the attacking trio of Ziyech, Werner, and Hudson-Odoi would be tasked with creating chances and scoring goals.

Option 2:

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Goalkeeper: Kepa

Defenders: Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Koulibaly, Ben Chilwell

Midfielders: Enzo Fernandez, Mateo Kovacic

Forwards: Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Mason Mount

Striker: Joao Felix

In this lineup, Potter could opt for a more traditional 4-2-3-1 formation, with James, Fofana, Koulibaly, and Chilwell forming the back four. Enzo Fernandez and Kovacic would sit deep in midfield, with Havertz, Ziyech, and Mount operating as attacking midfielders behind Joao Felix.

Both of these lineups offer a good balance of defensive solidity and attacking flair. The first option provides more width with the wing-backs, while the second option offers a more creative attacking midfield trio. Ultimately, it will be up to Potter to decide which formation and lineup will give Chelsea the best chance of beating Everton.
