On their return to the Premier League, Chelsea could line up without Thiago Silva and three other players.
After the international break, Thomas Tuchel’s options are limited.
Chelsea’s problems have been remedied by the arrival of Romelu Lukaku, and they now appear to be a complete team with him leading the line. The Belgian has three goals in six outings for the Blues, who are top of the Premier League standings with five wins, one tie, and one loss coming into the international break.
However, with several key players sidelined, Thomas Tuchel’s team may have to dig in even deeper when they face Brentford on October 16th.
The German boss has announced that he will be missing central defender Thiago Silva, who has been called up to the Brazil squad, as well as a few other key first-team players, for the trip to the Brentford Community Stadium.
Tuchel remarked on the club’s official website on Silva’s absence: “He will go and then play for Brazil, and then he will come back on the matchday versus Brentford.” This is how international breaks will be in 2021. What can I do, whether I like it or not?” He’s our player, and he’s returning from a nation where he’ll have to go through quarantine. Is this a viable option for our club? No, but we won’t be able to stop him. It isn’t possible.
“If they summon him, he must go; else, FIFA will suspend him.” As a result, there isn’t any other option. You just have to put up with it.” Trevoh Chalobah, a product of Chelsea’s academy, is the most likely contender to replace the 37-year-old in the back three, having replaced Andreas Christensen in the most recent league game against Southampton.
Tuchel will have Antonio Rudiger, Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta, Malang Sarr, and Nathaniel Chalobah to choose from in his defense.
Chalobah has made an impression since being promoted to the first team this season, scoring twice and playing good defense. Tuchel’s experience as a holding midfielder has given him another advantage in defense, as the 22-year-old is excellent with the ball at his feet and can move the ball well from deep.
Reece James, a fellow Englishman, is also anticipated to miss time after picking up an injury in the defeat to Manchester City a few weeks ago.
For the matches against Andorra, the right-back was called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
