CHE vs BRE: How Chelsea Could Lineup With Petrovic In Their EPL Match Against Brentford

Chelsea will aim to elevate their position on the EPL table when they face Brentford, as they have only been able to accumulate 13 points after playing 9 EPL matches. The Stamford Bridge side also failed to dominate in their previous London Derby against their fierce rivals Arsenal and nearly ended up losing the match.

These stand as the reasons why Pochettino will want to field a formidable squad against the Bees, who ran riot against Crystal Palace last week. He is also likely to replace Sanchez in the goalkeeping area following the goal poacher’s consistent poor footwork, which also led to the team conceding pitifully against Arsenal.

Judging by how the Blues squad performed against Arsenal and the availability of players who have returned from injuries, below is the lineup Chelsea could pick for their next match with Petrovic as the goalkeeper.

Formation: 4-3-3

Goalkeeper: Petrovic

Defense: Cucurella, Thiago Silva, Colwill, Reece James

Midfielder: Enzo Fernandez, Caicedo, Gallagher

Attack: Mykhailo Mudryk, Cole Palmer, Raheem Sterling

As stated earlier, Petrovic could be the Blues’ goalkeeper for the match, while Reece James could be brought in to replace Gusto. The midfield may not witness changes as the trio of Fernandez, Caicedo, and Gallagher performed well. Palmer could still lead the attack following Jackson’s lack of cool finishing.
