Kovacic To Return? – See 2 Ways Chelsea Could Line Up Against Leicester In The League

Here are the 2 ways Chelsea could line up against Leicester City in the Premier League on Tuesday night. Thomas Tuchel should have a fully fit squad as he aims to get revenge on Leicester for the FA Cup final defeat.

Option 1: A Little Tweak From the FA Cup Final Squad

Following the disappointing loss to the Foxes in the FA Cup final, Thomas Tuchel is likely to change things up for the upcoming Premier League clash. At least, Ben Chilwell should replace Marcos Alonso after his late bright cameo on Saturday.

Elsewhere in the squad, Mateo Kovacic is expected to be back to the starting XI as long as he’s fully fit, while Christian Pulisic and Edouard Mendy should also make their return to the starting XI.

Option 2: A Possible Change In Formation

One of the reason for Chelsea’s lethargic display in the FA Cup final was because the team was possibly too defensively set up. Now with the Blues in dire need of a win on Tuesday to boost their chances of a top-4 finish in the Premier League, the German gaffer could switch things up.

If he should revert to a 4-3-3 formation as we predict here, Cesar Azpilicueta will probably be the defender sacrificed as an extra attacker in Kai Havertz coming in for him.

Meanwhile, as fans return to Stamford Bridge for this game, the Blues will want to produce a special performance and an attacking formation could allow that to happen.
