TUCHEL CAN’T START HAVERTZ AGAINST LIVERPOOL
Premier League legend Ian Wright is certain that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel won’t start Kai Havertzfor the Liverpool game at Anfield. Hosts Liverpool and Chelsea will put their perfect record in the new Premier League campaign on the line when they meet at Anfield on Saturday evening.
Ex-Arsenal and Crystal Palace striker Ian Wright talked about Havertz and the way Chelsea will start the game during the latest edition of the Kelly &Wrighty Show as they previewed the Premier League games billed for this weekend. The encounter between Liverpool and Chelsea is the star match of the week three set of games in the Premier League this season. According to Wright,Chelsea boss Tuchel can’t afford to start Havertz like he did at Arsenal last weekend.
Tuchel started both Lukaku and Havertz as Chelsea beat Arsenal 2-0 away from home in their London Derby clash thanks to the goals from Belgian international Lukaku and England national team defender Reece James. Ian Wright said that Tuchel could get away withLukaku and Havertz in the Chelsea starting XI due tothe lack of organisation exhibited by the Gunners last weekend and that he might not be able to get away with fielding the two players from the start against the Reds later this week.
Liverpool are set to welcome both Andy Robertson and Fabinho back to the starting XI ahead of the Chelsea game. Scottish national team player Robertson has missed the first two games of the new league season but he’s set to return to action for the Chelsea game after recovering from the ankle injury that forced him to miss those two games. For Brazilian international Fabinho, he’s back in training after the tragic passing of his father forced him to miss the Burnley game last weekend.
