Thomas Tuchel has spent over £150 million this offseason, giving Chelsea hope that they can challenge for the Premier League title this year.

Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Marc Cucurella are just a few of the new players who have joined Thomas Tuchel’s squad at Stamford Bridge in recent weeks.

The Blues got off to a winning start, beating Everton 1-0 on the road thanks to a penalty kick from Jorginho, while Tottenham beat Southampton 4-1 at home.

Antonio Conte, who previously managed Chelsea, has also made significant roster changes this summer, bringing in players like Richarlison, Ivan Perisic, and Yves Bissouma.

Foreseen Chelsea starting XI: Blues’ starting lineup against Spurs

In a 3-4-3 formation, this is how Chelsea’s starting eleven might look: Mount, Sterling, and Havertz are joined by Mendy (GK), Azpilicueta, Silva, and Koulibaly, James, Jorginho, Kante, and Chilwell.

Who, if any, of Chelsea’s recent free agent additions might start Sunday’s game at Tottenham?

Both Koulibaly and Sterling, two of Tuchel’s new players, made their debuts last weekend at Goodison Park.

Koulibaly is expected to keep his starting spot against Spurs despite being substituted out late in the game, with Sterling expected to continue to lead the home team’s attack.

Tuchel could start the Spanish international Cucurella, whose transfer from Brighton was only finalized the day before, in this derby match, but Ben Chilwell is likely to get the nod once again.

While Tuchel should have a healthy roster to choose from, he may make some lineup changes upon returning to their home turf.

His primary conundrum will be whether or not to start Cucurella, but Christian Pulisic’s strong performance off the bench for the United States against Everton will also provide some food for thought.
