Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction at West Ham United

Share

Competition for places is always cutthroat in the Chelsea FC first team, so individual footballers will do what they have to do in order to get/retain playing time. Christian Pulisic, an attacking midfielder or winger, played three different positions in Chelsea’s win at Watford last night.

    Chelsea has the potential to be victorious with West Ham. Chelsea manager and players should maintain 3 things throughout the game: speed, accuracy and continuos on taget strkes. The goal area is for striking. A pass in this are is only to secure a sure goal.
    The backline must ensure a solid rear back.
