Silva out, Loftus-Cheek and Chalobah in: Chelsea’s Predicted Lineup to face Brentford on Saturday



Chelsea returns to Premier League action this weekend when they travel to Brentford for their first game after the International break.

The Stamford Bridge club will go into the game as the league leaders after beating Southampton last two weeks to climb up to the top of the league table. And they would look to win this game to strengthen their place on top of the table.

Chalobah celebrates his opener in their last game against Southampton.

However, the likes of N’Golo Kante and Reece James have returned to full training in recent days after recovering from illness and injury respectively. But whether they will be fit enough to start and finish the game is yet to be known, but they might need more time to regain their full match fitness.

And given they have just returned to full training, Tuchel might choose to start with those who are fully fit to start, and maybe bring them on from the bench in the second half. And judging from their previous performances in their previous games, we have predicted how Tuchel could select his starting lineup to face the Bees this Saturday with the likes of Trevoh Chalobah and Ruben Loftus-Cheek Starting the game.

Formation: 3-4-3.

Goalkeeper: Edouard Mendy

Center-backs: Rudiger, Christensen, Chalobah.

Thiago Silva will miss the game as he is likely to return late from International duty, and Chalobah could replace him at the back.

Wing-backs: Alonso, Azpilicueta.

Midfielders: Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek.

Attackers: Timo Werner, Lukaku, Kai Havertz.

The three Chelsea strikers scored for their respective countries at the World Cup qualifiers, and Tuchel could start with three of them as he would look to score more dangerous in attacks against the Bees.
