The undefeated race ended, and Chelsea were brought to the ground after almost forgetting how to lose. There needs to be a reaction against the Wolves tonight.
One of the main problems at Goodison Park was the display without front teeth. Either we cook some fresh ideas, or a semi-appropriate Christian could become the solution. This game has the potential to be an interesting encounter.
CHOICE OF PEOPLE
Nothing has changed in the WAGNH community’s opinion about the 4-3-3 formation being widely favored (73%) compared to 4-2-3-1 (10%) and 3-4-3 (9%), but there was an increase in votes for Kepa Arrizabalga (10%) after Édouard Mendy made the first mistake since joining the club. Although he keeps his place, it only shows how hard the goalkeeper’s life can be.
The back four saw no change in the regular quartet of Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouna and Reece James, although Silva received the fewest votes of the four after a slightly lower performance over the weekend. Antonio Rüdiger (21%). César Azpiliuceta (20%) and Andreas Christensen (12%) were the only other defenders to receive a double-digit percentage of the vote.
Kai Havertz (47%) had a game to forget at the weekend and it is a small surprise that he was abandoned by the community, both in midfield and in attack. Mateo Kovačić heads with N’Golo Kanté and Mason Mount, while Jorginho (18%) and Billy Gilmour (27%) wait in the wings.
Timo Werner may have a good chance of finding his team mate, but his header was tipped to a corner by the visitors’ keeper. Due to the lack of options, Christian Pulisic is in a hurry, although Tino Anjorin (17%) got a decent number of votes. Olivier Giroud (48%) spins Tammy Abraham (45%).
Mendy (88%) | Chilwell (87%), Silva (79%), Zouma (87%), James (90%) | Kovačić (59%), Kanté (96%), Mount (86%) | Pulisic (6%), Giroud (48%), Werner (87%)
MY FAVORITE CHOICE
Kai Havertz is a top talent, and his current tough patch does not change anything in this regard. And given that he recently contracted COVID, his fitness and inconsistency are not really a surprise. It will take time and patience to get back to the best. Chelsea have to go hand in hand, so Kovačić starts before Kai.
While I was careful not to rush Pulisic back last time, I threw all this out the window. The lack of an extreme goal against Everton was painfully obvious and we can’t afford another performance like this. We need someone who can threaten him and take his man, and Pulisic’s guy. Please don’t break.
I would stand firm with Giroud down, as Tammy has done little or nothing to justify a recent starting point. Giroud has been very hungry since Saturday, but Pulisic’s return will hopefully solve this problem.
Mendy | Chilwell, Silva, Zouma, James | Muntele, Kanté, Kovačić | Werner, Giroud, Pulisic
Lampard may be tied at 4-3-3, and with good reason, but if there’s a game to move to a back-three, it is – well, it should have been the last, but I missed that opportunity.
A back-three means we don’t need wings, none of which we can fit, he can deploy Werner in his most ideal position and he would probably see us fitting in well with Wolves, who could step back. to a rear configuration as well.
Mendy | Silva, Zouma, Azpilicueta | Chilwell, Kanté, Kovačić, James | The mountain | Werner, Giroud
