While Joao Felix’s first start is certainly noteworthy, the inclusion of Lewis Hall in Chelsea’s lineup tonight is the most intriguing development.
Thiago Silva, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Trevoh Chalobah appear to man the middle, with Cesar Azpilicueta on the right and Lewis Hall on the left, but the team’s defensive formation is unclear.
We all saw this coming; he had such success under Thomas Tuchel that we were disappointed to learn he would have to start over under Graham Potter.
His brief appearance against Manchester City last week proved decisive. Hall made a huge difference for the Blues down the left side, and he should get another opportunity to do so tonight.
We can only hope he is as assured in this new opportunity.
