The preferred line-up of Chelsea fans against Southampton: We want Ziyech!

Back to the real, not unnecessary football!

Chelsea welcomes a tricky team from Southampton, led by former RB Leipzig manager Ralph Hassenhüttl, an Austrian compatriot and a very tactically clever coach. Their underestimation has cost other teams in the past, even if Saints had a mixed start to the season. The Blues have to bring our A-Game here and our best line-up.


The 4-2-3-1 (61%) remains the clear favorite of the WAGNH community after the international break, with the 4-3-3 (34%) also receiving a fair share of the vote.

The light-hearted inclusion of the one-legged Mendy or short-term reactivation of the Petr Čech option won a solid stake (26%), but Kepa Arrizabalaga (62%) is the one who ultimately nods to Willy Caballero (13%).

The vast majority of votes cast came ahead of the Lampard press conference on Friday. This explains in part that the community is not taking any chances as Ben Chilwell (46%) has potential fitness issues, as well as the launch for Thiago Silva, which has since been confirmed as dating. After Zouma’s overwhelming majority, Fikayo Tomori (11%) leads the rest of the central defender vote, ahead of Andreas Christensen (7%) and Antonio Rüdiger (6%).

N’Golo Kanté (47%) leaves more injury insecurity; Mateo Kovačić and Jorginho start in Double Pivot.

The attacking band is the one we’ve all been waiting for: Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech – unfortunately it was confirmed that the latter is only suitable for banking. Callum Hudson-Odoi (19%) was next in the vote and received more votes than Tammy Abraham (12%) and Olivier Giroud (4%), who thus lose slightly to Timo Werner.

4-2-3-1 (61%)
Arrizabalaga (62%) Azpilicueta (68%), Silva (90%), Zouma (90%), James (65%) | Kovacic (67%), Jorginho (55%) Pulisic (91%), Havertz (96%), Ziyech (70%) | Werner (94%)


I’m happy to give Kepa another chance after saving a goal for Spain, but I’m ready to do my best to see Petr Čech come out of retirement. He’s got another stinker. A retired Čech can only be an improvement … and he’s younger than Caballero!

I had the luxury of writing this down after Lampard’s press conference so of course I made some changes: Chilwell in the back left, Tomori in the back center, Kanté in the center, and CHO on the wing.

Let us do this!

Kepa | Chilwell, Tomori, Zouma, James | Kovacic, Kanté Hudson-Odoi, Havertz, Pulisic | Werner
