Werner is looking to undergo a revamp under Thomas Tuchel, after it didn’t quite work out for him with Lampard at the helm. His pace could prove pivotal in the front line as Chelsea might need a number of backup options if the Tottenham defence is hard to break down.


When coming up against a defence like Tottenham’s which prides itself on aerial ability and toughness, players like Giroud are always the best bet. He is one of the most irritating and toughest strikers to defend against and having spent most of his career at Arsenal, he knows what it truly means to hate the noisy neighbours.


Pulisic is the player that I’m most excited to see under Tuchel. The two have a healthy working relationship and it was probably one of the pull factors for the boss. Pulisic is always rearing to go in games as big as this.
