Chelsea haven’t really played with three centre-backs, they have maintained the strict usage of four players at the back line of their defence. The blues will be returning back to Premier League action on Saturday as they will host Southampton at the Stamford Bridge at 3:00 pm on October 17.
Their last game saw them secure a massive 4-0 win against Crystal Palace at the Stamford Bridge with Ben Chilwell, Kurt Zouma & Jorginho getting on the scoresheet to claim the victory for the blues.
Their game against Southampton this weekend might prove to be difficult as the saints are a really strong side & not forgetting the major setback they just recently encountered with Edouard Mendy suffering from a thigh injury while on International duty for Senegal.
Christian Pulisic & Hakim Ziyech might ease up the fear from the minds of the Chelsea fans as both players are a tough & fit shape as they will probably feature in the game against the saints.
Frank Lampard should be open to taking risks that can help the team develop in confidence & here is how Chelsea could line-up against Southampton with three defenders ;
Forwards: Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic & Hakim Ziyech.
Midfielders: Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz, Ngolo Kante & Reece James.
Defenders: Zouma, Thiago Silva & Cesar Azpiliceuta.
