Welcome to the penultimate matchday of the group stage. Chelsea have turned things around after a poor start and currently sit top of the group. A win tonight would see us advance to the knockout rounds, and make the final matchday a formality.
As usual, Graham Potter makes a few changes to his lineup, switching both personnel and formation this time. As far as what the formation may be, your guess is as good as mine. There are three defenders in the team, one goalkeeper, and the rest can [FUNNING] run about a bit. For what it’s worth, the official lineup tweet has Pulisic and Sterling as wing-backs in a 3-4-3.
Here we go!
