Thomas Tuchel has four difficult decisions to make before of Chelsea’s match against Brentford.
Chelsea’s star-studded team will be fighting for a place in the starting lineup against Brentford in west London.
Chelsea will try to build on their excellent start to the Premier League with a win over Brentford on Saturday, but with a number of players returning from injury and impressing on international duty, Thomas Tuchel will have a lot of thinking to do. Express Sport examines four potential stumbling blocks for the German.
During the international break, Timo Werner scored for the German national team.
And, after scoring the winner against Southampton last time out despite Romelu Lukaku’s failure to score, there is a case to be made for Werner to take over as Chelsea’s striker.
Last season, he only scored six goals in 35 Premier League games.
However, with two goals in his past two games and only three starts this season, it may be the ideal time to give the German a chance.
Ben Chilwell has had a fantastic week and a half, scoring for Chelsea in a 3-1 win over Southampton prior to the international break, and now for England in a 5-0 thrashing of Andorra.
Due to Marcos Alonso’s improved form and adaption to Tuchel’s methods, the left-back has struggled for game time recently.
Chilwell, on the other hand, has recently impressed and could return to the team.
With so many further matchups on the horizon, it may make sense for the Englishman to preserve his spot in the team.
Chelsea’s loss to Juventus and tight win over Southampton both lacked energy.
Much of this can be due to the absence of N’Golo Kante with COVID-19.
Without the Frenchman, there is less bite in winning the ball back, and Chelsea will be hoping he can return to full fitness in time for the trip to Thomas Frank’s Brentford.
Tuchel will be eager to prove his worth against the Bees against an inexperienced midfield.
Tuchel is in a difficult condition.
There is only one slot left as one of Lukaku’s suppliers if Werner is re-instated after his recent form.
And, with Havertz scoring for Germany in midweek, there’s a case to be made for him coming into the team, considering Mount’s lone assist this season.
It will be, though, because Chelsea has never lost when Mount has been in the team. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
