Chelsea`s Potential Line-Up for Next Season

Chelsea`s Potential Line-Up for Next Season

With the football season over and another league championship in the bag for Chelsea, the Independent have been looking at how the Blues could line up next season.

In goal, they have Tibo, winner of the golden gloves last term. Can`t argue with that one. The three centre backs are David Luiz, Gary Cahill, and Southampton`s Virgil Van Dijk, tapped up favourite of media darlings Liverpool. There appears to be no place in the line-up for Cesar 'Dave` Azpilicueta though. Not sure that`s right.

Wing-backs stay the same with Victor Moses and the underrated Marcus Alonso. After a series of loans I was pleased Moses had a relatively good season, Cup Final blip aside. Going forward I think we can do better though. Dave could maybe slot in there. Alonso can stay for me, he chipped in with a few goals and did little wrong.

Midfield generals are N`golo Kante and Monaco`s Tiemoue Bakayoko, it could well prove a good partnership, the jury`s out though. Attacking midfielders are Riyad Mahraz from Leicester City on the right and Eden Hazard on the left. I think that could work, Mahrez could hopefully revive his career after under-performing as a league champion last season.

Up front, they`ve got our old friend Romelu Lukaku,with his Luiz-esque 'unfinished business`. Not really sure about this one. I certainly don`t consider him to be worth the ridiculous amounts being quoted in transfer fees. I would like to think that playing in a better team than Everton, would see him up his game, particularly against the bigger teams. He was always touted as a direct replacement for Didier, let's hope his 'unfinished business' see's him fill those really big boots.

Where os Fabrigas? I hope this time round he impregnates his wife earlier than usual.

I rate Bakayoko higher than Matic. I think he'll be an upgrade on Matic.

Sanchez would rather bring a lot on board. Why don't we sign Sanchez instead of Mahrez ...#BLUES4EVER#...

Mahres? No, thanks. I'd rather stick with my Pedro.

Bakayoko-Kante will definately be stronger than the preffered Matic-Kante partnership the creativity will be a little too as Bakayoko looks better on the ball and tight spaces than Matic...

the Fabregas question will linger next season too but against teams that park the bus and counter, I think Fabregas will start to get a goal or two before reverting to the Kante-Baka combo to counter

I think bakayoko and matic will be good for our team when we face transfer that feature high tower in the midfield like man u. One of the reasons we lost. Coz they played high ball in mieldfield leaving kante running around in the first half.

Put Dave at right-wing back instead of Moses and Willian instead of Mahrez and I suspect that's exactly howe the team will line up.

With these additions if they ever show up, I hope we're able to hold onto Fabregas, Pedro and Willian. I think we should lose Matic, Moses and Costa. There's a lot of football next season and we were pretty lucky not to have many injuries last season, we'll need a bigger squad. Let's hope Conte manages that situation better than 'he who shall not be named'

100% agree with that techiec2000. But to manage a bigger squad The Don first needs help to assemble one. As for all the Morata fans - seems he's been tied up by Manure. I too like him and fell he would have blossomed under The Don. Although Morata very impressively has the highest goal ratio per attempt in world football, the grind of the Prem is always an unknown factor on foreign players.
