Checkout Chelsea And Villarreal Possible Lineup Ahead Of The UEFA Super Cup Match
Chelsea Possible Lineup
The possible lineup that Thomas Tuchel may use against Villarreal is a 4:4:2 formation. In this lineup, Chelsea would be defensively conscious as they know that Villarreal would pose a great threat.
With this formation, Chelsea would deploy the use of a counterattack. The blues would execute this formation very well because they used it in most of their preseason matches.
In goal, we would be expecting to see Chelsea’s number 1 choice goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. The Senegalese goalkeeper has been very impressive for the Blues. Thomas Tuchel may start Antonio Rudiger and Zouma in central defense, while Ben Chilwell and Azpilicueta may start as the left-back and right-back.
Thomas Tuchel would likely pair Ngolo Kante and Jorginho in the middle of the midfield, to help both the defenders and attackers. Hakim Ziyech and Pulisic may play alongside Kante and Jorginho in the midfield. Ziyech is currently in top form as he scored 2 goals in Chelsea’s last friendly match against Tottenham.
Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, and Mason Mount may likely lead the attack against Villarreal. The front trio has covered themselves in glory after impressing very well last season. They played a vital role in Chelsea’s Champions League win last season.
Villarreal Possible Lineup
Villarreal head coach Unai Emery, may likely use a 4:2:3:1 formation.
In goal, we would be expecting to see Asenjo who has been very impressive. In the defense, Moreno, Albiol, Mandy, and Foyth would form a solid defensive line.
In the midfield area, Pedraza, Trigueros, Manu Morlanes, Yeremi Pino, and Fer Nino would mount their positions.
Villarreal last season’s top scorer Gerard Moreno would lead the attack of the squad. Gerard Moreno is known for his excellent goal-scoring ability. The top striker scored a total of 30 goals last season for Villarreal, and he would be hoping to carry that form into their encounter with Chelsea.
