How Chelsea can lineup their starting XI to face Nottingham Forest this weekend


Mauricio Pochettino was a complete mess at Stamford Bridge at times since the start of the season. No one was counting on them to finish at a respectable spot at thw end of the season. However, the concluding statement may not have been delivered yet as Chelsea have been in an immensely amazing run in the last few fixtures. There is a strong contemplation about how Chelsea can lineup against Nottingham Forest.

How Pochettino can lineup Chelsea to face Forest

The weekend fixture is going to be a huge game for the Blues to bolster their European finish hopes. In order to achieve the feat, the Blues need to give their best on the field as Nottingham are not going to be a cakewalk. One of the most interesting aspect will be the availability of Christopher Nkunku for the team. This is how they can lineup.

Djordje Petrovic is going to be the man between the sticks as usual for Pochettino over Robert Sanchez.

With Malo Gusto back off the bench last time out, he will this time be back in a starting side who could be challenged by Callum Hudson-Odoi in attack.

For the central defence pair, Thiago Silva and Benoit Badiashile will be a preference for the Argentine manager. Badiashile has been able to silence hus critics after his recent performances and Silva is still an asset for the club.

Marc Cucurella is going to start at the left back with an inverted role, a position where he has been living his potential recently to the fullest.

The midfield trio will be Moises Caicedo, Conor Gallagher and Cole Palmer. The absence of Enzo Fernandez has not been a major setback for them. Their current alignment is doing wonders for them. Hence, the change in these three seems not to be changed.

The forward lineup will be Noni Madueke and Nikolas Jackson . Their partner on the attack can be the returning Christopher Nkunku who is ready again after another long-term injury.

The season is on the verge of conclusion and Mauricio Pochettino will wish to present the management a solid testament to continue his job next season. The players will also be keen to finish the season with a good will.
