In this series, I will use FIFA 18 to simulate as well as play the next Chelsea FC match — with the difficulty on the highest level, because much like Chelsea FC, I occasionally like to make things difficult on myself for no reason whatsoever.
My shot at glory (with commentary)
For the starting lineup I have the following to take on the Magpies:
4-3-3: Arrizabalaga | Alonso, David Luiz, Rüdiger, Azpilicueta | Barkley, Jorginho, Kanté | Hazard, Morata, Pedro
This week I was supposed to be joined by Coming Home Newcastle in a nice FIFA 18 Battle to the loss, but unfortunately EA decided to not allow our matchmaking to work. However, the London is Blue podcast did an interview with the site beforehand! So you can check that out here, for the Newcastle perspective.
As always, this simulation also features the same lineups as above.
