The match, which is scheduled to be played at Windsor Park by 20:00 WAT, is an opportunity for both teams to win their first title of the season.

As for the Blues, Thomas Tuchel is expected to name a very strong lineup. In this article, we’ll be looking at 2 possible ways the German tactician could set up his side for tonight’s game. Let’s have a look:


Option A
Thomas Tuchel is expected to line his team up in the familiar 3-4-2-1 formation, with Edouard Mendy lining up in goal.

The trio of Kurt Zouma, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Antonio Rudiger is expected to occupy the defensive positions.

Kovacic and Jorginho should play as pivots in the midfield while Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ben Chilwell stay as wing-backs.

As for the attack, Kai Havertz could be used as a ‘false 9’, just like last season while Mason Mount and Cristian Pulisic occupy the wings.

Option B
Another option Tuchel could explore is to play with the traditional 3-4-3 formation.

In this case, the attacking trio could be made up of Timo Werner as a center-forward, Havertz as a left-winger, and the in-form Hakim Ziyech as a right-winger.

As for the midfield, Kovacic and Kante should play centrally while Alonso and Callum Hudson-Odoi occupy the wings. Reece James is also an option for the wing-back position.

Zouma, Antonio Rudiger, and Cesar Azpilicueta should keep their places in defense.

Here’s an illustration of the possible lineup below:

Although Villarreal is a very tough side to beat, Chelsea seems to have a more quality squad. As such, we expect the Blues to triumph over the Spanish side tonight.
