2 Ways Chelsea Could Line Up Against Manchester City In UCL Final

Chelsea have traveled to Porto ahead of the Champions League final against Manchester City on Saturday.

Injury doubts Edouard Mendy and N’Golo Kante have both traveled with the squad as they joined the training on Wednesday. Thus, the boss Thomas Tuchel seems positive about their chances to feature on Saturday – and they ideally would be in the starting XI.

But then, who should play alongside them? Below, we give you a couple of options to choose from. You can use the comment section to share your choice and explain your pick.

Option 1: Kai Havertz as False 9

This particular setup has worked well in the Champions League for Chelsea so far, and Tuchel might well decide to take Timo Werner off the firing line to the wing. And Havertz in this case is ahead of Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham in the pecking order.

Meanwhile, the Azpilicueta-James dilemma is intriguing: Reece has played as the right-sided center-back recently, to mixed results.

Option 2: Timo Werner Up Front

At a second thought, there is every chance Timo Werner could spearhead the attacking role and look to exploit Manchester City’s high defensive line.

Also, Andreas Christensen is more than an adequate replacement for Thiago Silva, while Marcos Alonso could add an attacking threat on set-pieces but would be a risky choice defensively.
