With the imminent addition of Joao Felix to Chelsea squad, Graham Potter would have one more option to convince for his starting lineup.
However, there might not be an immediate change or instant impact since key Players in the team like Ben Chilwell, N’Golo Kante and Reece James are still absent due to injury but, what if these Players are available and ready to share the pitch with Joao Felix when the Portuguese National arrives at Stamford Bridge?
The West London club will definitely be able to field one of strongest starting lineup among the EPL Top 6 Clubs.
Of course, Kepa Arrizabalaga will be Chelsea’s uncontestable number 1 with Thiago Silva and Wesley Fofana in the Central-back. England Fullback Duo Reece James and Ben Chilwell will play in the Right-back and Left-back position respectively.
Due to the favorite position of Joao Felix as an Attacking Midfielder, Chelsea will have to switch to an old formation and use the 4-2-3-1 formation with N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovavic as double pivot in the Midfield.
Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic will play as Wingers while Joao Felix will play in the Central Attacking Midfield role and Kai Havertz will play as number 9.
