Welcome to our second ever Club World Cup final!

We lost the first.

Let’s not do that again.

Tuchel, now in person, makes four changes from the semifinal — Palmeiras are unchanged from their win — with Mount replacing Ziyech, Hudson-Odoi replacing Alonso, Kanté replacing Jorginho, and Mendy coming back in for Kepa in goal. It’s probably a 3-4-3 with CHO as left wing-back, but possibly not. We’ll see!

Here we go!


Chelsea starting lineup (3-4-3):
Mendy | Rüdiger, Silva, Christensen | Hudson-Odoi, Kanté, Kovačić, Azpilicueta (c) | Havertz, Lukaku, Mount

Substitutes from: Arrizabalaga, Betinelli, Chalobah, Alonso, Kenedy Jorginho, Saúl, Barkley, Ziyech, Pulisic, Werner

Palmeiras starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Weverton | Piquerez, Luan, Gómez (c) Rocha | Ze Rafael, Danilo | Scarpa, Veiga, Dudu | Rony

Substitutes from: Kuscevic, Jorge, Wesley, Mayke, Deyverson, Breno, Atuesta, Cerqueira, Navarro, Jailson, Mateus, Marcelo
