Chelsea are in a bit of an injury crisis up front right now, with Romelu LukakuTimo Werner and Christian Pulisic all sidelined.

Moreover, Thomas Tuchel has dropped a bombshell today as he announced that Mateo Kovacic will be out for some weeks due to a hamstring injury.

Luckily, Ruben Loftus-CheekAndreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta are back in contention, so it’s not all bad before the Blues’ trip to Newcastle.

So, how should Chelsea line up tomorrow? Here are a couple of options for you to consider.

Option 1: 3-4-3


This looks to be the most balanced formation for Chelsea that would allow making the most out of Kai Havertz as a false nine.

Besides, Callum Hudson-Odoi could feature in his favourite role on the left of a front three again.

N’Golo Kante‘s recovery means he can slot in beside Jorginho in Kovacic’s place without a notable drop in quality (if any).


Alternatively, Chelsea could load up in midfield, given the number of options there and a limited choice in attack.

Loftus-Cheek has shown in previous games he’s good enough to start for Chelsea in the Premier League.
