Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Liverpool

Share

With Romelu Lukaku, there is always a risk that he can hinder and distract whatever team he is on, given his personality. That’s been among the major knocks on him, as he’s never been the greatest dressing room guy. The big Belgian may have disrupted team chemistry now, as he called out the tactics of his own manager Thomas Tuchel.

He also professed his love for his former club, Inter Milan, letting it be known that he wishes to return there someday soon. Yikes! Does Tuchel bench him against Liverpool on Sunday for this? He needs to make an example, right? Or does he have no choice but to play him?

Tuchel has an injury-riddled, covid-stricken club, so he does have some selection issues in the final third right now. When Chelsea host Liverpool on Sunday, it will be a match-up where the loser would likely be effectively eliminated from the league title race.

If there is no winner, and there is a draw, then the winner would essentially be first place Manchester City, as both their main competitors would have then dropped points in the quest to catch them.

  9. Mount should drop to the bench.. he isn’t a team player.. he should be the link btw the midfield and attack but he holds the ball alot wanting to show off when strikers are in right position for him to pass to.. instead he wants to take a shot or dribble.. Mount is selfish.. pulisic and kai can play that role better because they are unselfish even kovacic too..
