CHE Vs SEV Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two sides struggling for form in their domestic leagues turn to European football to steady their jittery ships.
Despite having been in charge of Chelsea for well over a year now, Lampard just can’t seem to get his house in order defensively. The English man’s lack of knowhow when it comes to the defensive side of the game is truning out to be a real aberration for the London based club with the team consistently being bogged down by its defensive issues.
Failing to address the elephant in the room, Chelsea yet again only had themselves to blame for their shambolic performance against Southampton. Despite being in a comfortable position as they sat on a 2-0 lead in the first half, the club failed to make its advantage count to allow Southampton to overhaul that deficit and walk away with a 3-3 draw.
The performance once again saw questions being asked of Lampard and fingers be pointed at him. He’s starting to feel the heat now with his side getting their 2020-21 sojourn in the Premier League to a lopsided start.
CHE Vs SEV Fantasy Probable Winner
Its what makes this contest against Sevilla all the more crucial for Chelsea come today. The club is in dire need of a win as it looks to pull its socks up and justify the colossal amount shelved out in the transfer market earlier.
This is not going to be an easy tie for Chelsea by any means. Despite Sevilla themselves struggling in La Liga with the side having failed to have won its last couple of affairs, the Europa League champions need no introduction.
We have a real edge of the seat thriller on our hands today, one we envision swinging in Chelsea’s favour owing to their slightly better attacking setup.

All of Sevilla’s consummate success the last coupe of years has been down to their defensive brand of football. The side has clobbered teams with goal-keeper Yassine Bounou taking over the charge of the side’s defensive setup.
For all of Chelsea’s plights defensively, we have still managed to opt for the two names from the club. Sevilla aren’t massively renowned as an attacking unit, a team which failed to muster up against Getafe in its 1-0 defeat.
We begin with Ben Chilwell who has two assists in his two Premier League starts, a fullback who has looked extremely imperious when cantering down the park. New signing Thiago Silva links up with him while the one assist for Jesus Navas sees him find a place in our side from Sevilla.
Kai Havertz is starting to show why Chelsea broke the bank to make him their most expensive signing ever. He scored his first Premier League the last time around, one which goes along nicely with the two assists he has for the side.
Mason Mount is capable of striking the ball cleanly and hitting some peach of a strikes to see him join up. Completing the triad from the side is midfielder Jorginho who currently finds himself as the club’s top scorer with three penalties.
Sevilla on the other hand will find representation in the enterprising Lucas Ocampos for the forthcoming scrimmage along with Ivan Rakitic who can distribute the ball nicely around the park.
Timo Werner silenced his naysayers in some style. He was absolutely enigmatic against Southampton scoring twice and setting up the one goal for his club to make the striker an instant pick.
Sevilla’s leading scorer in the league as things stand with the two goals to his name, striker Luke de Jong will be our pick from the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The three goals he crafted for Chelsea see Werner captain our side while Kai is the vice-captain.
Bounou, Chilwell, Navas, Silva, Rakitic, Jorginho, Kai, Lucas, Mount, Werner, Luke
