The traditional Boxing Day match this year sees Chelsea face Arsenal in the magnificent London Derby. Conditions cannot be different. One is in the wider race for the title, the other on the brink of a relegation loss. However, if history tells us anything, this model will come out of the window in these types of games.
After an important win over West Ham, it was WAGNH community Maintain confidence in known quantities. The belief continues in the 4-3-3 lineup, with 4-2-3-1 (15%) failing, 3-4-3 (6%) and 4-4-2 (3%) failing.
Edward Mendy maintained his 10th clean sheet for the club earlier this week so Kepa Arizabalaga (4%) must stick Consider beer bottles While on the bench.
With both regular fullbacks knocked out with injury, Emerson and Cesar Azpilicuita intervene again, with Marcos Alonso (9%) remaining as a back-up defender. Tony Rudiger (10%), Andreas Christensen (6%) and Vicayo Tomori (5%) had absolutely no chance against the blossoming and wonderful partnership between Thiago Silva and Kurt Zuma.
Likewise, the choices were clear in midfield, with Matteo Kovacic, Ngolo Kante and Mason Mount ahead of Billy Gilmore (13%), Jorginho (9%) and Kai Havertz (26%). The latter might especially benefit by stepping off the bench, and taking a little out of the spotlight.
The attacking squad remained the same on Monday: Olivier Giroud (22%) and returning Callum Hudson-Odoi (39%) behind the trio of Christian Pulisic, Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner.
Soggy (95%) | Emerson (86%), Silva (93%), Zuma (93%), Azpilicuita (98%) | Kovacic (74%), Kante (98%), Mt. (89%), Werner (67%), Abraham (63%), Pulisic (95%)
My favorite choice
Although I understand the community’s choice to start Ibrahim after he scored an important goal on Monday, I’d like to see the potential killer combination between Hudson-Odoi, Werner and Pulisic start here as Arsenal’s defense is so much to capitalize on it. . Imagining them running the likes of Mustafi or Hold ragged is somewhat fun, to say the least.
Otherwise, the remaining squad will choose itself in light of the current list of injuries.
Soggy | Emerson, Silva, Zuma, Azpilicueta Mount, Kante, Kovacic | Hudson-Odoi, Werner, Pulisic
