Chilwell returns to Chelsea XI as Tuchel explains Alonso and Hudson-Odoi benchings

Chelsea will be aiming to make it four clean sheets in as many matches under their new manager when they face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane this evening.

Kick-off in the last of four Premier League fixtures to take place on a busy Sunday is at 19:15 GMT.

The Blues are unbeaten under Thomas Tuchel but the German hasn’t kept an unchanged starting XI in any of his four matches in charge and tinkers with his line-up again this evening.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is one casualty, dropping to the bench and losing his ever-present starter status under Tuchel.

Olivier Giroud is recalled and will be supported by Mason Mount and Timo Werner in the three-man Chelsea attack.

Marcos Alonso also makes way, with Ben Chilwell recalled.

Tuchel explained those two changes ahead of kick-off:

For Marcos, it was no need to take the risk to let him play three in a row in 10 days after a long pause in competition for him. So, there was the choice of Chilly. It was the same reason for Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The German’s final alteration was an enforced one, with Andreas Christensen stepping in to replace the injured Thiago Silva.

Chris Wilder has gone one better than the man in the opposition dugout, making four changes to his line-up.

Kean Bryan and Max Lowe replace the ineligible Ethan Ampadu and the injured George Baldock in Wilder’s two enforced tweaks.

And the regular rotation continues up top, with Oliver Burke and Ollie McBurnie ousting David McGoldrick and Billy Sharp from the front two.

Sheffield United XI: Ramsdale, Basham, Egan, Bryan, Lowe, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Bogle, Burke, McBurnie.

Chelsea XI: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell, Mount, Giroud, Werner.

    who are your targets for the DGW next week, apart from City players....

    1. DMP
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      DCL, Mee and Areola. Look above.

    2. tbos83
        2 months, 6 days ago

        James, DCL

      • Pad Randa (The OG)
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Digne and DCL, but I’ve already got them both, so will likely bank the transfer.

      • Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        DCL plus Pope definitely. And maybe another extra.

          2 months, 6 days ago

          Agree!

      • Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Pope and DCL

      • Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Got DCL and will get Pope and maybe one other but not sure who!

      • Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Pope DCL

        1. Breezyy
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Why everyone Pope? Benching Martinez?

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

              • 5 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              dont agree, great fixtures in a DGW

              1. Magic Zico
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Talking about myself bro spending transfer for DGW

                1. OneDennisBergkamp
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  fair enough, good pick though may double again in 26

          2. Davros
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            DGW

    3. MikeLowrey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Will wait for FA Cup games, but thinking of using 2FT on Robbo & Mitchell to Cancelo & Mee. Leaves me with the below:

      Martinez
      Cancelo Dias Coufal Mee
      Gundo Salah Bruno Grealish
      Antonio Bamford

      (Forster Son KWP Brewster)

    4. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      We are gonna need an extra forum for Rough with the Rough.

    5. MMN
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      1 FT 0.1M ITB. Good to save FT?

      Going to bench boost in 26. Antonio > Bamford the obvious move next week. Any thoughts on who to replace Chilwell with and how to use the third FT before DGW26?

      Areola*
      Stones*, Mee*, Cancelo*
      Gundo* (C), Salah, Bruno, Grealish
      Watkins, Antonio, DCL* (VC)
      Martinez, Barnes, Justin, Chilwell

      1. Kitman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Would you TC Bamford?

      2. MMN
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Perhaps. It depends on how he does vs Palace and Arsenal. My guess is I'll end up holding out for a big hitter although the fixtures are pretty good ...

        Any thoughts on the Chilly replacement and transfer plans?

        1. Kitman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Chilwell to Targett maytbe? they've got buckets of DGWs left

          1. MMN
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Already have triple Villa but otherwise not a bad shout. Thinking Shaw/AWB or Southampton defender if back to back doubles.

            1. Kitman
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              jeez forgot about shaw - yeah that a great shout.

              But i would wait and see, especially until the end of the week as the landscape may completely change and some sure fire options will emerge

    6. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Need a Dallas haul tomorrow to make the gameweek not a disaster

      1. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        55 with Dallas and Bamford to go is hardly a disaster...

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          ML rival closing gap is concerning though...

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Raphinha

    7. Pad Randa (The OG)
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Play Pope or Areola?

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Pope

      2. Tcheco
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Not sure if serious but surely Pope?

      3. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Pope

    8. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Pope
      Mee, Cancelo, Digne, Stones
      Salah, Saka, Bruno, Sterling
      Antonio, DCL

      Subs: Martinez, Bamford, Soucek, Coufal

      Right order?

      1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I would start Bamford (on pens) over Saka

    9. Tcheco
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Currently on Sterling(C) & have Lookman (eve bur). Should I upgrade Lookman to Gundogan?

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Uh yeah

      2. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I’d try and get 3 city but not the week to lose Lookman

        1. Tcheco
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Exactly! He'd be a big differential & served me well last DGW. Also plays SHU in GW25.

      3. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Definitely need 3 City players. If Lookman is the only mid you would lose to get Gundo then go for it

        1. Tcheco
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Other mids are Sterling Bruno Rashford Son and a stacked front line. It's the one slot I would tinker with

          1. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Then do it. Gundo is going to score more than Lookman.

            1. Tcheco
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Cheers mate

    10. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Not many asking if they’ve got a good score this week

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Many asking good bench scores this week 😉

        1. Buck The Trent
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          🙂

      2. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Not gonna lie to you. It has been an awful week.
        Soucek red, Saka blank, DDG howlers and all this with DCL and Martinez on the bench.

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          It’s def one of those weeks that 50/50 calls could backfire. I almost brought in Pope (bench Martinez) and Bamford (bench DCL) but ended up saving transfer - fine line

      3. MoSalad
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Happy with how I did in the end but unsure what the average is this GW.

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          52 overall average

          1. MoSalad
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Oh ok, yeah I did pretty well then just guy below in my ML is on like 93 inc bonus plus BamBam to go.

            1. Pat Bonner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Wow that’s massive score

    11. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Want Pope but he's not cheap, what's your vote for GW24 and 25?
      A. Pope (cry FUL WBA )
      B. DDG (wba NEW) + 4

      1. Buck The Trent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Pope .. DDG doesn’t get baps

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Yeah and bps as well if 0-0 or 1-0 win

        2. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          This for me

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Ta!

      2. Tcheco
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Would be an obvious move if for free. The -4 makes it a 50/50

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          I'll go Pope if it's 50/50, thx

      3. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Love a dgw keeper so I’d prob go for pope

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Hoho yeah I'm a DGW junkie

      4. ivantys
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Pope is not guaranteed baps as the 3 teams he faces don't shoot much. I prefer DDG here as he's already 1 CS ahead.

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            You take it if for free?

            1. ivantys
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Yeah for free works, don't trust the United defence anyway.

                1. Magic Zico
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Exactly my problem with DDG (he's my left over from BB GW19)

                  1. ivantys
                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      But then palace and fulham are actually better in attack when compared to wba and newcastle. I guess you can go Pope if you're WC'ing soon since he will be useless after 25.

                      1. Magic Zico
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 2 Years
                        2 months, 6 days ago

                        No WC left ... to me feels like spending transfer I agree. Will not overthink, I will pick what excites me the most and enjoy.

                        1. ivantys
                            2 months, 6 days ago

                            Yeah it's not like that United defence will actually keep CS too.

              • CROYDON DE BRUYNE
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Same conundrum but gonna bring in Pope for -4

                1. Magic Zico
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Good man

            2. Le Bluff
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Somehow going to end on 80 all out, despite Antonio (c).

              The last 2 GWs I have genuinely captained my lowest scoring player in both weeks. Here's to that changing next week...

              1. Free Hat
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Id rather have a bad Cpt and 80 score than good cpt and 59 tbf 😀

                1. Le Bluff
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Yeah fair point! 80 is a great score and I'm not complaining. Just frustrating that Antonio didn't deliver!

              2. TheDragon
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                That’s a great score unless Bamford and Dallas both get hattricks tomorrow

                1. Le Bluff
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Very true.

              3. Free Hat
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                But nice score. Well done.

                1. Le Bluff
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Cheers. Slowly started getting some momentum. Just need to nail some captain picks!

                  1. Free Hat
                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    Yeah. Cptcy is very frustrating this season!

              Who scores more in gw24

              A. Coufal (sheff United)
              B. Lowton (Fulham & palace)

              1. Bushwhacker
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 6 days ago

                    Depends on fixtures in 26

                    Kane the priority of the 2 but both good options

                  Already have Son. Keeping an eye on his price. May have to pull the trigger

                    Definitely need Kane if Spurs get double in 26. He'll be my TC

                  Cheers. Figure carrying 2 ft into 25/26 makes sense. Hoping I can BB, and then somehow get past 29 with no FH to play - WC 30.

                    Look well set for that plan. I have Mitchell and Brewster stinking out my bench so might either wc or take a few hits for 26 BB

                      All season I seem to be well set for 2 or 3 games ahead, but constantly struggling to get a big score. Been kicking around 150k-250k for weeks, and the last DGW was a disaster.

                2 months, 6 days ago

                So picking chilwell, cancelo and soucek over dcl, coufal and justin probably my all time worst decision! I thought if chilwell plays clean sheet guaranteed. Rudiger with a ridiculous own goal just before chilwell subbed sums up my gameweek. Horrendous

                  Mini league rival had Salah and DCL in the bench. Ouch

                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      That is brave benching Salah! Building a strong squad because of covid has caused too many benching headaches

                  2. bench boost for every gamew…

                    You are being to hard on yourself. Sound thinkin and sometimes margins are not on your side. I would perhaps have played Justin over cancelo, but tight. I knew Liverpool would score though-) Justin was vert Lucky not to concede and soucek, well he misses one sitter and then Mason suddenly lost the concept of 'violent conduct' and Dean executed it

                      He played for the penalty well.

                      There was a covering defender and he ran around the wrong side of the keeper to win a dubious penalty. Well, he contrived it at least.

                  Any reason the RMT Tool still rates Gundogan at a comically low score each week?

                    Don’t use RMT....never gets updated from what I can see. This is a good example

                      Yeah. I'd like to use it but this is the sort of thing that makes it useless.

                      I can ignore the bench suggestions, but it's rubbish.

                  Would you use a transfer to bring in a Burnley defender to play over one of these?

                  Sanchez
                  Coufal Cancelo Stones
                  Son Salah Bruno Gundo
                  Watkins Antonio DCL

                  Im thinking Burnley defenders will get 8 points max this week which many SGW players could match. Contemplating whether it'd be better to just prepare ahead and bring in a DGW 25 or 26 player

                    Personally I'm not getting too hung up on this GW. GW18 completely blew up me season and I took some good risks

                  My rock solid captain picks lately:
                  GW20: Bruno = 2
                  GW21: DCL = 2
                  GW22: Salah = 2
                  GW23: Grealish = 2

                  Safe picks low score
                  Punts low score too...
                  next week:

                    Mee cheaper... only reason. Might come good with the extra cash

                  This is a terrible take on the penalty decision from Souness

                  As someone with just BB + WC remaining, I do think it *could* pay off long term to BB24 and WC25 with 26/29 in mind. Obvs dependent on midweek results etc.

                  Would you consider this GW24 BB (no hits) of:

                  Martinez (bha)
                  KWP - if fit (WOL)
                  Soucek (SHU)
                  Watkins (bha)

                  Pope
                  Coufal Dias Stones Digne
                  Salah Bruno Son Gundo
                  DCL Antonio

                    I’d probably hold it tbh.

                    If using wc in 25 then surely BB in 26

                      With Leeds/Southampton singles on the bench?

                        Would just be Leeds tbf, but still you’d want them for 29?

                        1. Pat Bonner

                          Should know more in midweek on teams who have a double and a game in 29

                          1. JIMMY764

                            Well we know Leeds double in 25 and don’t in 26. Also playing in 29. That’s the conundrum for me without Leeds atm.

                    Decent .. but DGW25 have 2 bites of the cherry

                      I can see the benefit of this. Have you still got 1 ft?

                        I have 2FT. Would be Steer and Pereria to Pope + Gundo.

                    Planning on just doing Barnes —> Lookman this GW after the FA Cup to get this team for 24.

                    Areola
                    Cancelo, Stones, Cresswell, Coufal
                    Lookman, (G)undo, Salah, Penandes
                    BobbyDR, Antonio

                    Johnstone, BamBam, Son, AWB

                    Nervous about leaving those players on the bench but seems the strongest 11 I can put out.

                    Nervous about leaving out DCL but BobbyDR to DCL seems backwards for a -4, and don’t like any Everton mids.

                    What people think?

                      I like it, but as you say I wouldn’t be happy with the bench, it’s going to be one those weeks for a many of us.

                        It’s going to be a nervy GW behind the Sofa cause that bench could easily score 20pts plus.

                        Hopefully Arsenals defence gets back on song, City keep another cleanie and West Brom somehow score lol.
