As Chelsea team prepare to enter February with matches set to resume for the blues on the 5th of February, after some winter break, they look forward to sharpen up there squad after the Tottenham defeat to maintain a perfect form.
This January transfer window saw the blues to have only got to sign 18yr old Derby County player (Dylan Williams), who is more likely to continue with the development squad at cobham to rise up his games.
A Natural left Winger and can also be deployed as wing-backs for team that uses 3-4-3 formation, where the blues have been lacking this season after Ben Chilwell injury, also with Reece James missing out from the squad for some weeks now.
while the use of Malang Sarr and Alonso have been deployed to this key area for the team matches in recent weeks, this January transfer window has bring in kenedy who return to the club from his loan spell with Falmengo.
The initial reason to the arrival of Kenedy was to secure another loan option move away from the club, but Thomas Tuchel labelled his return as “bigger opportunity’. But not considered as the perfect option.
As per report, Tuchel said: “we won’t agree the 25yr old is the solution to the left back option. He can be for sometime but the whole issues hasn’t changed. We got some long term injuries in the squad from thesame position which will suffer extremely well for it.
“Also In the midfield, covid19 issues everywhere including injuries and now our midfielders are gradually coming back, don’t Forget we suffer in our defence too which our centre defence out of tiredness.
“Well nothing has changed in the team but it matters the team make sense, making sense on high level form and in good quality with personality. We look into the market but notice nothing has changed, we have every option available and option to say NO.”
Taking a closer look at the team, it clearly shown if any addition would be made, it shows the back line we be the key area for any change. By the time the squad is back from winter break, we should see a more detail pictures on who could start in the blues line up.
We all know Edouard Mendy is out to AFCON with Senegal, so is not in the team. The keeper will want to make impact with his country and that might take him till Feb 6 for the final game of the tournament. Kepa Arrizabalaga will still keep his place in the team.
This winter break brings in the injured players and free covid19 issues, this might put Christensen and Chalobah back in contention. The German coach would likely to return back to his favoured formation, if likely they finally get the hands on wing back.
We all know James would be in any Chelesa line up, with the English man return to the grass, which means his fully recovery is near. The blues head has refuse to give update on the time of recovery but for sure its a positive sign to see James back to the grass.
Chelesa skipper Cesar Azpilicueta might be trusted on the right flank but with Chalobah pace in providing enough protection, he should be ahead of Cesar. If possible a new left back arrival as Tuchel looks forward to price out the Italian international Emerson away from Lyon but the club is reluctant to let the player go.
The Italian international remains Tuchel favorite in that position due to his familiarity with the club. £3M has already put on place to put am end to Emerson loan spell with the club, and the player is open to the move which could see him once more with the blues.
As we all know the midfield could be of any out of the three players with Mateo kovacic, Ngolo kante and Jorginho on line, which depends solemnly on the opposition the blues is facing.
Hakim Ziyech is in fine form right now and will remain once again in the starting line up but his fine form has come deeply from when the uses a back four which Tuchel needs to facilitates and also Mount contribution both on and off the pitch has places in the like up with Ziyech.
Lukaku stays the critical figure as the fundamental striker, the blues searching for a method for drawing out his solidarity and coordinate it into the group.
Christian Pulisic and Odoi effectiveness to run with the balls will be needed from the bench in an attacking forward or as a wingback position.
Possible Chelsea XI: Kepa; Chalobah-Silva-Rudiger; James-Kante-Kovacic-Emerson; Ziyech-Lukaku-Mount.
