3-4-2-1 formation: Chelsea probable line-up with new signings Bakayoko, and Rudiger

Chelsea will be looking to stage a strong title defense but having discovered a productive tactics, Antonio Conte is bound to stick with the 3-4-3 formation he used to conquered the Premier League last term.

The Blues are heavily involved in the transfer window and have already bolstered their squad Willy Cabellero and Antonio Rudiger. Monaco defensive midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is also on the cusp of being announced as a Chelsea players.

Willy Cabellero joined as a replacement for Asmir Begovic and he is not expected to make the first team. Meanwhile, James Rudiger is classed as a first team player and he is expected to form an impenetrable defensive trio with Gary Cahill and David Luis – Rudiger is suited to playing on the right side of back three and he will take the place of Ceasar Azpilicueta.

Meanwhile, N’golo kante was partnered by Nemanja Matic but Bakayoko is due for medical today. Although he is recovering from knee injury, he is said to be a creative option to Matic and a perfect partner for Kante. His incisive runs will come handy while Kante’s hard tackles will give him the leverage to roam Chelsea’s midfield.

Belotti, Aubameyang and Morata have all been linked to Chelsea, it appears that Conte wants Bakayoko’s deal done before focusing on a striker. Most of the fans of Chelsea have called for Belotti to be signed and so, we predict Chelsea’s line-up with probable new signings.
