Chelsea have another big game tonight after traveling to Turin to face Juventus in the Champions League group stages.

At this level there is never an easy match, but Juventus are in a bit of stumbling form this season and it’s certainly isn’t the worse time to play them.

However, this will be a very tough match for Chelsea, and Thomas Tuchel has some huge tactical and personnel decisions to make.

Being without Reece James, Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante, and Christian Pulisic, there might be opportunities for others..

I believe Tuchel might stick with a 3-5-2, or a variation of it, but just a more attacking version with Loftus-Cheek and Mateo Kovacic playing more advanced in 8 roles, and Jorginho sitting.

I think Kai Havertz might play in a free roaming role but close to Romelu Lukaku, and the back three pretty much pick themselves.

I also think Marcos Alonso might get a rest.

My predicted Xl in a 3-5-2:

Mendy, Christensen, Silva, Rudiger. Azpilicueta, Kovacic, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Chilwell. Havertz, Lukaku.
