Chelsea, having collected 10 points from our last 12 and won three straight in the league, can move up to fourth place with a victory tonight and move to within just four points of second and third place. The fixture list has been favorable, and we’ve been taking full advantage. But we must keep it going. With almost a full week to rest until the next game, Tuchel has sprung a few surprises once again.
The eye-catching change is the one at goalkeeper, where Kepa Arrizabalaga continues in place of Edouard Mendy after keeping a clean sheet on his first appearance under Tuchel, as we beat Barnsley 1-0 on Thursday. The man who scored the decisive goal in that match, Tammy Abraham, also keeps his place, leading the line supported by Timo Werner and Mason Mount, as Olivier Giroud drops to the bench. The other changes to the line-up come at wing-back, as Callum Hudson-Odoi and Marcos Alonso return to the starting XI in the Premier League, with Reece James and Ben Chilwell making way.
