The Thomas Tuchel’s men pulled off a massive comeback against Luton Town this evening, as they defeated the Championship team 3-2 at their home. As a result, Chelsea have literally qualified for the next phase of the FA Cup competition, as they continue their winning streak in all competitions.
Meanwhile, there are two players Chelsea shouldn’t play against Burnley on Saturday, mainly because of their all-around performances against Luton Town this evening. Apparently, the Blues cannot avoid losing any Premier League fixtures at the moment, so they shouldn’t play these two players against the Clarets, in order to claim 3 points.
The Italian magnifico failed to command the midfield in the absence of N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic this evening, as he was poor throughout his 76 minutes on the pitch. Jorginho lost ball possession 10 times, with 1 interception and 2 tackles as a defensive midfielder.
Aside from that, the Italian magnifico had 1/4 long balls, 0/1 aerial duels, and 2/4 ground duels, as he literally gave Luton Town enough chances to oppress Chelsea, because he couldn’t control the midfield. With all that being said, Thomas Tuchel shouldn’t start Jorginho on Saturday, as he can repeat the Kante-Kovacic combination.
As a defender, the Frenchman didn’t have any clearances, tackles, blocked shots or interceptions against the Championship team, as he overworked Antonio Rüdiger at the back. Having said that, he doesn’t deserve to start against the Clarets this weekend. Malang Sarr also lost ball possession 17 times, with 2/8 long balls, 2/5 ground duels, and 2/4 aerial duels, so he was poor both defensively and offensively. Trevoh Chalobah and Andreas Christensen are most unlikely to play on Saturday due to injuries. Nevertheless, Chelsea shouldn’t play Sarr, so as to be able to command their defense against Burnley.
