    First draft.

    - Holgate might start for Everton, given that Coleman is injured and if they will play with 3 at the back, he's gonna be the right centre-back most likely
    - not sure about Zaha, might consider someone else instead of him
    - attack is very risky, not sure about Lacazette or Chicharito
    - can't see Conte dropping Batshuayi after his display in friendlies so I think he's gonna start and get some points, at least in first GWs

    I don't think Holgate will start. They've signed Martina for a cover RB and Kenny is back. Also doesn't look like they'll be doing 3 atb with the signings they're making.

    Conte COULD play two up front. But I don't think he will.

    Surely it has to be Batshuayi over Morata, though? At least at the beginning.

    Unlikely.

    Conte says Morata doesn't fit with his idea of football yet. He's looked really bad in preseason games, whereas Batshuayi is in much better form. Can't see how Michy starting over Morata is "unlikely".

    Fair enough, haven't paid Chelsea much attention during pre-season.

    Forster
    Bertrand - Stones - Trippier
    Phillips - De Bruyne - Alli - Willian
    Jesus - Lukaku - Gayle

    Elliot, Lascelles, Mee, Carroll

    Pretty happy with that

    6.0 Midfielder was between Phillips and Ritchie
    7.0 Midfielder was between Willian/Zaha/Fabregas and Ramsey

    Willian actually has a good chance to start for at least the first few weeks considering Hazard is still returning to fitness and Pedro is recovering from a concussion and multiple facial fractures.

    I actually think he's nailed on to start, Chelsea have no wingers apart from Hazard and Pedro and if both are out for the first few weeks I think he'll play Willian on the right and Batshuayi on the left with Morata in the centre

    One question - why is everyone jumping at Southampton defenders? They have by far the worst centre back partnership in the PL, no matter who plays there. Van Dijk will most likely not play so imo it's unlikely they won't concede. I mean Yoshida-Bednarek, Yoshida-Stephens? What kind of defence is that? Most Championship clubs have better partnerships.

    EDIT: Ik they have an easy run of fixtures at the beginning, maybe I'm exaggerating but if they don't sign at least 2 quality centre backs, they will be fighting not to get relegated.

    Quite like this draft tbh, usually 4-3-3 but two CB's have hard first games

    Latest draft, no Spurs attacker is my only concern at the moment.

    Hart
    Kompany - Yoshida - Trippier
    De Bruyne - Salah - Willian - Zaha
    Lukaku - Jesus - Chicharito

    Elliot - Carroll - Dunk - Rosenior

    Really like that team, I'd swap Hart for someone else though

    This is my team, happy with it!

    Only thing I might change is Zaha to Ritchie which will free up 1m to spend on my defence

    or Zaha/Willian v Ritchie/Mkhitaryan combo

    I've never understood the need for three £10M+ attackers. Just buy one, if any, and invest the rest of your money in midfield, defence and goal.

    Initially, they'll both start. Remember, Michael Phelps is still injured.

    Welcome on board!
    Decent squad but I have some advice for you.
    - Butland is back, so Grant won't start. You can swap him for another £4.5 goalkeeper;
    - if you want some extra funds then David Luiz and Keane are not the cheapest options from Chelsea/Everton defence. If you want, you can downgrade Luiz to Courtois (for example swap Begović for Courtois and Luiz for a £4.5 defender) and Keane to one of Holgate/Martina (a bit risky cause we can't be sure which one of them starts).

    Thanks for the tips. I probably will have a look at changing it up a bit now that you've pointed a couple of things out.

    Lallana out for a few months apparently; might give a settled CM spot to Milner or Wijnaldum.
