Chelsea’s stunning 2018/19 XI under Maurizio Sarri with seven new signings and eight potential exits

Posted by

RWB: Victor Moses

A top performer at wing-back, if Chelsea continue to use such a system one imagines it would be for the best and allow Victor Moses to continue to play a key role for the side.

LWB: Marcos Alonso

And on the other side, Marcos Alonso is another influential Chelsea player who seems ideally suited to Conte’s system, and Sarri would be wise to look to accommodate both these wing-backs into his team.

CM: Jorginho

Newly signed from Napoli, Jorginho was one of the best midfielders in Europe last season and looks ideal to replace N’Golo Kante amid links with the Frenchman with Barcelona, according to Don Balon.

CM: Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

One of the most exciting young players in the world, Lazio starlet Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is a player Sarri will know well from his time in Serie A and he’s now said to be a target for Chelsea, according to Corriere dello Sport, as translated by Calciomercato. It’s also previously been claimed by the Daily Mail that another midfielder on his way out could be Danny Drinkwater, perhaps on loan.
