How Chelsea could lineup this weekend following Reece James and Kante’s return.
Chelsea will return to action against Brentford this weekend after the second International break of the season. The Blues will go into this fixture as the league leaders after beating Southampton earlier this month to climb to the 1st position before the International break. And they would look to win the game to maintain their position on top of the table.
However, Chelsea missed some of their first-team stars in the last couple of weeks before the break due to injuries and illness as they were without the likes of Reece James and Kante in their recent victory over Southampton. But ahead of their next league game after the break, the two stars have returned to training with the squad as they prepare to feature on Saturday.
And if they are very fit to feature in the game, Tuchel could start the two of them to give his team more chance of winning against the Bees who have been very outstanding in the Premier League following their promotion to the League this season.Brentford has beaten the likes of Arsenal, West Ham, and Wolves so far this season.
And ahead of the crucial game, we have predicted how the best way Tuchel could line up his team for the game with Kante and James in the starting lineup following their return.
