Wrong Move: Pochettino’s choice to play Chilwell could make Chelsea fans angry.
Some sites, like Caughtoffside, think that Mauricio Pochettino will keep the same lineup as last week, with Ben Chilwell staying on the bench and Levi Colwill staying at left back.
The fans don’t like this set-up because they want Chilwell to play left back and help whoever plays on the left wing, which could be Mykhailo Mudryk like last week.
We’re not sure. It’s clear that Pochettino likes using Colwill as a narrow left back, because he kept him there last week even after he decided Chilwell’s time as a player was up.
We have a good chance that Pochettino will finally do what most of the fans want against Aston Villa. On the other hand, Villa is a strong team, so is it impossible that Chilwell will come back, but this time on the wing?
If that happens, there will be a few meltdowns. 5 goals in 5 games is not good enough, and a move like that will look bad no matter what happens on the field.
