Chelsea FC Potential Formation
Sarri’s formation is a 4-3-3 with a defensive midfielder and wingers. This is a classic Sarri’s tactic with the ability to defend well but also the ability to exploit the flanks.
First option in your squad is Kepa Arrizabalaga. The former Athletic Bilbao keeper is an excellent player and a wonderkid in the game. His vision, aerial reach and ability to guide the defense is more than amazing. He develops to be one of the greatest players in the game.
Second option is the 37 years old Argentinian Willy Caballero. He has experience of the Premier League from his spell in Manchester City.
Third option is Robert Green. The Englishman came from Huddersfield Town this summer. Himself and Caballero can be role model for the young players.
There are plenty of choices for the Center-Back position. The clubs captain Gary Cahill has been in the club for years. He is a tough defender with good marking, tackling and heading.
David Luiz has his second spell in Chelsea. He is a good player although he can cost you a game due to his often mistakes and lack of concentration. Antonio Rudiger a 25 year old backup defender.
Andreas Christensen is a Danish defender and a wonderkid in FM19. He develops very well if given enough playtime in the first team.
One of the biggest wonderkids in this year's game is Ethan Empadu. He is 18 year-old with good stats and a whole lot of potential ahead of him. Give him on loan for a season or two and he will return ready for first team football.
For the full back positions there are for the right hand side Cesar Azpilicueta and Davide Zappacosta, and for the left hand side there are Marcos Alonso and Emerson.
There are lots of names for the midfield positions. First of all, world cup winner N’golo Kante. The guy can press like a beast and he never gets tired. His marking and tackling are amazing and he also can pass the ball around more than satisfactory.
Jorginho came from Napoli this summer and he already makes an impact. He is strong but at the same time more than intelligent.
The Real Madrid loaned, Mateo Kovacic is an amazing talent. His ability with the ball is excellent, a true deep-lying playmaker.
Cesc Fabregas has the experience and the talent, and despite his age he can make a impact for your side.
Drinkwater has plenty to prove. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is a 22 years old players with great potential. He has to train very hard before you give your opportunity to him.
Ross Barkley is all about the assists. He can pass and score. Surely is a plus if you have him in your squad.
For the right hand side there are the Brazilian Willian who is an elite player and one of the best players at Chelsea, and of course there is also Victor Moses as a substitute.
For the left hand side there are the former Barcelona winger Pedro and the clubs star and No1 player Eden Hazard. He is one of the best players in Football Manager 2019. He is a beast when he runs with the ball. He scores plenty of goals and assists as well, key player.
Two options for your striker position. First we have another former Real Madrid player, the Spaniard Alvaro Morata. He is a player who can finish an assist in all possible ways. He is a natural finisher.
Second, the former Arsenal man Olivier Giroud. Giroud is a player with no world-class ability. But he is a fox in the box, a target man with a poacher's instinct. The way he puts his body to work in his advantage is more than amazing. He can compete with every defender in the Premier League.
I hope you will find my guide for Chelsea FC useful guys.
Best of luck and make Mourinho a memory at Stamford Bridge.
