2. Timo Werner
One obvious discovery about Timo Werner in the game against Manchester City was the fact that he lacked connection with Lukaku.Timo Werner made some good runs on the right side, but he had no help. Werner only took two shots throughout the game and created almost no opportunities for his teammates.
3. Marcos Alonso
Chelsea’s wing back was missing in action against Manchester City. Alonso should have been one of Chelsea’s few attacking options, but he did nothing. His defending was poor, and his offensive abilities were non-existent.Players who should replace the above listed Players
1. Ruben Loftus-Cheek For Jorgingo
Ruben deserves a first start of the season. Ruben Loftus-Cheek shone multiple times, despite coming from the bench, that he is ready to make impact. He was impressive against Mancity on Saturday and should get the chance to prove himself in the Champions League.
2. Kai Havertz For Timo Werner
Pulisic and Mount are both expected to miss the game on Wednesday due to injuries. As a result, Timo Werner’s best replacement against Juventus is Kai Havertz.
3. Ben Chilwell For Marcus Alonso
Alonso should be rested for the game against Juventus. His poor performance against a fast Manchester city side suggest that Chilwell Should start against Juventus who plays similar football to Manchester city.
