My team:

Alisson Trent Matip VVD Robbo Fabinho Keita Hendo Mo Bobby Sadio

They're going to try and prove a point with their purchases and will try play as many of their "new boys" as possible.

I think picking Keita ahead of Gini for this fixture is a huge gamble, and not one I would take.

I was also thinking about it from the context of the contract and not wanting have a conversation about why he is not making the first XI for one of our most difficult games.

Breaking down battles by side-of-pitch, looking at Chelsea at Brighton - their right side (so side down which Keita or Wijnaldum would be stationed) was 

James (RB), Christiansen (RCB), Kante (RCM), Havaertz (R-AM), Loftus Cheek (#10) - contrasted to the left

Alonso, Zouma, Jorginho, Mount (L-AM), Werner (more left than right)

Loftus Cheek is unlikely to play, meaning it could be Kovacic back into a midfield 3 or push Havertz into #10 and bring back in Pulusic. Lampard could even swap out Loftus Cheek for a 3rd CB and go 3-4-3.

Yeah I'll be stunned if it's not Hendo, Fab, and Gini. Also not sure they'll play as many new signings as they did at Brighton.

They only played two!

Would be shocked if Matip came back in, 45 minute pre season and up against a quick player like Werner would be a thing I think we'd avoid. Think he'll start the (potentially) two league cup games but Gomez stays in for the four league games. Probably see him at Everton in the fifth game to combat Calvert-Lewin.

Alisson

TAA Gomez VvD Robertson

Henderson Fabinho Thiago

Salah Firmino Mane

Throw him in at the deep end.  If he is outdone by Havertz just send him back to Bayern and cite a cooling-off period.
