A moderately easy run of fixtures saw the Blues miss Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Mason Mount, and Christian Pulisic.

However, after the International break, we are anticipating a full house as they are expected back at the Bridge.

Thomas Tuchel will have attacking decision to make once everyone is fit after the International break.

But, just how will he fit these eight players into three spots?

Romelu Lukaku has been a regular since he made Stford Bridge his new home. However, the growth of others certainly means he’ll be rotated more frequently now. His profile is unique in the squad and now that his presence has made the Blues a force upfront. 

Mount and Werner on the other hand are very different players obviously. If Mount can replicate the form he had  like last season, which he was starting to have just before recent illnesses, he’ll be the third man.

At the same time, Tuchel does seem to favor Werner and appears to like the concept of two strikers up top. This could become a situation where, if Tuchel wants a 3-4-3, he can use any assortment of Mount, Hudson-Odoi, and Werner around Lukaku.

If he wants 3-4-1-2 or 3-5-2, Hudson-Odoi would likely make way to get Mount into the midfield and Werner up alongside Lukaku.

Then there is Barkley and Ziyech. Barkley did satisfactorily against Burnley, but we all know where he stands.

The club put him up for sale all summer and he is playing now because Tuchel doesn’t want to waste a resource if he has it. For every good match Barkley has, he has many others where he is inefficient. It’s difficult to watch where his minutes will show up from.

Ziyech is, possibly, even worse off. Very few of Ziyech’s performances have been good enough to explain starts.

It very much feels like he was a good match for Frank Lampard but is a very bad match for Tuchel. With everyone fit, it’s even harder to see Ziyech giving minutes than it is Barkley unless he can show any degree of magic.

These are good problems to have, but Tuchel will have to rotate and be smart about how he does so over the winter.
