Thomas Tuchel has called this match a chance to start the season anew, so let’s see if we can indeed do that and make this a turning point. Of course we cannot erase the previous five games, but it’s a long season ahead with plenty on offer.

To help that along, Tuchel has tweaked the system, going with three midfielder (as per the official tweet), and no recognized striker. Bold choice; let’s see if it works out for us.

Here we go!
