CHE Vs NEW Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Tuchel strives to keep his unbeaten run at Chelsea going.
When Thomas Tuchel had taken over at Chelsea, few had envisioned him embarking on the kind of run he has. With Chelsea being in a turmoil prior to Tuchel’s appointment with Lampard leaving the club in a shambles, Tuchel’s job was never going to be an easy one.
However, the 47 year old German has made his colossal task look extremely easy. The manager has turned things around in absolutely no time at all, seeing Chelsea make massive strides in the Premier League by remaining unbeaten with them.
He continued that spree into the FA Cup as well with Chelsea managing to down Barnsley 1-0 despite being made to huff and puff on the day.

Premier League 2020-21

Top Goal Scorer
- Abraham: 6 Goals
- Wilson: 10 Goals, 5 Assists
Karl Darlow has been one of the most pristine goal-keepers this season, a player who has seen his stock rise in just six months.
We’ll be slotting him next to Jamal Lewis, a player who has managed to open the park up with his searing runs in attack.
Chelsea on the other hand will see their entire backline be ingrained in our team of the day. With Newcastle United set to miss out on top scorer Wilson, we envision Chelsea emerging with a cleansheet.
It sees us rope in Andres Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, Reece James and captain Cesar Azpilicueta from the club.
Be it Lampard or Tuchel, Mason Mount impressing on the park has been a constant. Jorginho is now the club’s second leading scorer with the five goals to his name to see him and Matteo Kovacic complete the trio of picks from the unit.
With four goals to his name, Miguel Almiron is our pick from the visiting team.
He’s going to find company in the services of Joelinton who has pulled off the two assists for the club.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The likelihood of a Chelsea cleansheet sees Cesar be our captain while Mount is the vice-captain.
Darlow, Cesar, Andres, Reece, Rudiger, Lewis, Mount, Jorginho, Kovacic, Miguel, Joelinton
