Why Mauricio Pochettino should stop starting these Chelsea players

Why Mauricio Pochettino should stop starting these Chelsea players

 Chelsea's recent poor run reached a new low as they failed to secure any points against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge.

The West Londoners now face the challenge of turning things around, and a crucial step might involve making changes to the starting lineup.

Thiago Silva

Yesterday's match highlighted a challenging day at the office for the veteran Brazilian in the heart of Chelsea's defense. Signs of aging were evident, and Newcastle attackers took advantage of his vulnerabilities.

Silva was also directly involved in one of the goals conceded, losing possession in a crucial area.

A potential solution could be to give young defender Levi Colwill an opportunity to bring fresh energy to the backline.

Marc Cucurella

The left-back position proved to be a weak link for Chelsea, with Marc Cucurella struggling to execute his defensive duties effectively.

Multiple exposures allowed Newcastle attackers to breach the defensive line, putting additional pressure on the team. To strengthen the defense in the upcoming matches, Cucurella might need to make way for a more reliable option in the starting XI.

Robert Sanchez

While the ex-Brighton goalkeeper had moments where he could have kept Chelsea in the game, his overall performance was less than convincing, especially when dealing with crosses.

Cole Palmer

In the attacking third, Cole Palmer struggled to show his best form against Newcastle United. With only one goal-scoring opportunity created and a lackluster offensive contribution, dropping Palmer for the upcoming game would allow Chelsea to explore other attacking options.
