At the moment, the team will be represented with very familiar faces. The reason for the move is to maintain the Blues fantastic start to the ongoing English premier league. However, other small competitions will see other younger players like Hudson –Odoi play.

In the lineup against Bournemouth, the manager will play with a 4-3-3 formation. The new goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalega will be the one on the goal post. The young goalkeeper has been slowly adapting to his new environment in England. In the times to come, the shot-stopper is expected to gather more confidence as the number one goalkeeper. In the defense line, the obvious quartet David Luiz, Azpilcueta, Marcos Alonso and Antonino Rudiger will be staring at the backline. In the midfield, Ngolo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and the new boy Jorginho will be making a start. Lastly, the forward pack will be led by Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata and Pedro Rodriguez.
