      Pre Match Chelsea v Liverpool - Sunday 13th Aug 16:30
      Aug 08, 2023 12:47:34 pm
      So it’s nearly there and it’s not a bad opener

      Despite all the doom and gloom when it comes to transfer windows I’m actually excited for the coming season

      So first team selection


      Allison

      TAA
      Konate
      VVD
      Robbo

      Jones
      Gary Mac
      Dom

      Mo
      Gakpo
      Jota


      That’s what I would go with but wouldn’t surprise me if Diaz is in

      Chelsea have just had a blow with Nkunku out for 4 minths

      I would play like this but Klopp will use Gakpo instead Jota.

      NB: Team no longer available

      Just win guys.

      I expect that this will be the team. The only position I'm not sure on is Jota or Diaz. I expect Mac to play as the 6.


                                           Alisson

        Trent               Konate                 VVD           Robertson


                                          Mac Allister

                        Szobo                               Jones


              Salah                      Gakpo                   Diaz

      Didn't watch last friendly, but did we lineup as 4-2-3-1? Gapko, Diaz, Jota and Salah all started.

      Would be interesting to see if we go  back to that formation.

      That's what I think it'll be and what I'd go for.

      I'd play MacAllister beside Jones though just for that extra but I'd security and Trent more orthodox.

      Jota on the left as he's more disciplined that Diaz defensively and also offers that goal threat inside when Gakpo drops back.

      Never once can I recall Jürgen call him a new midfielder.

      I feel starting Jones in number 6 just makes it a case of outscoring them before we even start... It's so hard to make a starting 11 without a natural 6, maybe a back three with Trent filling in the 6 role?


                         Allison
             Gomez   Virgil   Konate
                          Trent
                 Dominik   MacA
              Salah    Gakpo    Diaz

      Trent as a sole 6 would leave even more gaps than Jones.

      But last year he tested him in midfield and it looked promising. He's just error-prone as RB bc he cannot defend on a high level, midfield would suit him more. I did not see any preseason games, did he always only play at RB or also in midfield?

      He's never once started in midfield to the best if my knowledge.

      Let's hope the attack are on their game because we'll be conceding at least a couple here that's for sure!

      How are we in this situation where it's even a discussion putting Jones and Trent there?  :f_wah:

      I don't think we are.

      I think Jones and MacAllister plays as a 2 with one ahead.

      Have we ever played with a double pivot?

      Pretty sure we did when Jürgen had that period with Mo Bob and Sadio up top with Coutinho in a creative advanced midfield role in behind.
