West London club Chelsea hope to continue their brilliant form when they face Southampton in the Carabao Cup. English Premier League giants Chelsea are hoping for a good result when they take on Southampton at Stamford Bridge.
English Premier League giants Chelsea are big favorites to win based on their result against Southampton so far. A comfortable win for Chelsea would secure their place in the next round of the competition.
Germany and Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel is expected to point to a strong squad for the crucial cup clash against Southampton. Chelsea and Germany head coach Thomas Tuchel could prepare his team with two strong formations in midweek. Let's take a look at some of the possible lineups that Southampton can beat in the Carabao Cup;
Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel can arrange his team in a 3-4-3 formation, where Edward Mendy will stand between the racket, Thiago Silva, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger as central defenders, Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek as central defenders, Reese James and Marcus Alonso as wingers, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Mason Mount as wingers, Kai Haverz as lone strikers.
Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel can also field his team in a 3-5-2 formation, with goalkeepers Kepa Arisabalaga, Antonio Rüdiger, Andreas Christensen and Malang Sar at centre-back, Marcus Alonso and Cesar Aspilicueta as wingers, Ngolo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Jorgeninho as central midfielders, Mason Mount and Kai Haverz as strikers.
Chelsea will head into the EFL Cup quarter-finals when they welcome their Premier League counterparts Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night. The Blues started the game after a 7-0 league win over Norwich City on Saturday, while Southampton drew 2-2 against Burnley that afternoon.
As disappointing as Norwich was on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea were irresistible: Thomas Tuchel scored seven unanswered goals against the Canaries to ensure they will finish their last streak of Premier League games at the top of the table.
The Blues started the 2021-22 season very well in the league, winning seven, drawing one and losing one of their nine games to collect 22 points while scoring 23 goals and conceding just three.
It would be fair to say that the EFL Cup is fourth on the priority list this season after the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup, but Tuhel will be desperate to reach the quarter-finals of the competition with his place in the round to reach 16 confirmed by a successful penalty shootout over Aston Villa.
The Blues are currently on a four-game winning streak and will envision their chances of beating Southampton, Newcastle United, Malmo and Burnley in their next four games before taking on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on November 20 to compete.
