Werner and Lukaku up front: tuchel set up a strong lineup to face zenit in champion league

Werner and Lukaku up front? Pick Chelsea XI v Zenit from 2 options!

Thomas Tuchel will be without Christian Pulisic and N’Golo Kante for the Zenit game. However, he has plenty of options to choose from.

Option 1: Proven XI
This is the Champions League, there are no weak teams there, so only the best and fittest players right now should start.

It means Alonso over Chilwell, Christensen over Silva, James at RWB and Mount and Havertz over Ziyech and Werner.

Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Kovacic, Jorginho, Alonso; Mount, Lukaku, Havertz

Option 2: Chance to under-used players
We’re not saying play Barkley and Sarr but the likes of Chilwell, Chalobah and Loftus-Cheek deserve more time on the pitch.

Zenit won’t offer the pace of the Premier League so it’s a perfect opposition to give game time to Saul.

Mendy; Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Rudiger; James, Saul, Loftus-Cheek, Chilwell; Ziyech, Lukaku, Werner
