Chelsea are currently having a rough start in the English Premier League, with the Blues languishing in 10th position on the league table.
The Blues have won two games, lost two, and drew one in their first five games, but they could have achieved more than that if Thomas Tuchel had taken a bold decision of benching some of the first team players who are underperforming.
Chelsea’s next game in the league is against London rivals West Ham, and the Blues need to get back to winning ways. Here are the three players that need to be benched in Chelsea’s next five games.
The Italian midfielder has not been at his best in the first five games and needs to be replaced for Chelsea to get back to winning ways. The Chelsea midfield department needs some fresh legs and is desperately missing the services of N’golo Kante.
2 Kai Havertz
The German forward has been criticised lately for his below-par performance for the Blues. The Germany international has played in the false 9 position, and he hasn’t impressed. With the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the former Bayer Leverkusen star could be out of the starting XI.
3 Mason Mount
The England international hasn’t been at his best this season and needs some time off the team so he can get back his form. Mount has always been an important player for the Blues since breaking into the first team setup, but he hasn’t replicated this same form this season.
