GK: Andre Onana – With Chelsea’s hierarchy eager to maneuver on certainly one of Edouard Mendy or Kepa Arrizabalaga, it is greater than possible that Poch will get a brand new goalkeeper becoming a member of his ranks. Diogo Costa is the perfect goalkeeper who presently is not enjoying in certainly one of Europe’s elite leagues, however his sky-high asking value may see Inter’s Andre Onana change into the popular choice – the Champions League finalists want money, and quick.

RB – Reece James – It has been an up-and-down season for Reece James, however on his day he is one of many best right-backs on the planet. Bear in mind who Kyle Walker first flourished beneath at Spurs? Yeah, you guessed it.

CB – Thiago Silva – One of many few vivid sparks in direction of the tip of the 2022/23 season was common minutes for Wesley Fofana, who will virtually actually be the way forward for the membership’s backline. However with Thiago Silva, aged 38, scooping the membership’s participant of the season award and nonetheless working at a excessive stage, can Poch actually afford to look previous his management?

CB: Levi Colwill – One of many main beneficaries of Pochettino’s appointment might be Colwill, who has flourished beneath Roberto De Zerbi’s administration at Brighton. A younger, progressive ball-playing defender, he seems to be to have all of the attributes to go to the very high, and crucially presents steadiness to the backline as he is left footed.

LB – Ben Chilwell – Like James on the alternative flank, Chelsea followers can anticipate Chilwell’s efficiency to enhance ten-fold with Poch as supervisor.


CM – N’Golo Kante – The Frenchman has been injured for 90% of the time over the previous couple of seasons, but he is nonetheless not likely been changed. If Kante can keep match (and that is an enormous ‘if’), he might be essential to how Pochettino’s Chelsea will play, significantly because the gamers get used to their new strategies.

CM – Enzo Fernandez – We have not seen the perfect of the British document signing simply but and that is purely as a result of Chelsea have been an utter mess. One can anticipate a lot, significantly better performances from Enzo as soon as a transparent tactical plan is in place at Stamford Bridge.

RM: Raheem Sterling – Becoming a member of from Manchester Metropolis for £50m final summer season, huge issues have been anticipated from Sterling at Stamford Bridge. For sure, his, and lots of others, season’s fell properly beneath the anticipated requirements. Nonetheless, there’s an excessive amount of of an x-factor on supply from the 28-year-old for Poch to extract essentially the most out of.

AM – Christopher Nkunku – You forgot he was coming to Chelsea, did not you? Don’t be concerned, everybody did. And but, he may be the right Son Heung-min type participant that would thrive beneath Poch, both centrally or within the vast areas.

LM – Mykhailo Mudryk – The Ukrainian price an absolute fortune however is but to essentially present if he is bought the expertise to make it at Chelsea. If there’s one supervisor who will give him an opportunity, offering he places within the work, it is Poch. May very well be a dream appointment for Mudryk.

ST – Victor Osimhen – Chelsea want a striker desperately and there is few higher strikers in world soccer than Victor Osimhen. If Chelsea wish to compete, they want a participant of the Nigerian’s calibre main the road. Both that or reinvigorate certainly one of Kai Havertz or Romelu Lukaku.
