The UEFA club competition season curtain-raiser known as the UEFA Super Cup pits together the winners of the last season’s UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. So for this year, it will be Chelsea Football Club against Villarreal CF.

In this article, we’ll be taking a look at how Thomas Tuchelcould set up his squad for the final match.
Since the transfer window opened, Chelsea hasn’t been able to make any significant signing. The chase for Erling Haaland hasn’t made progress so far as Dortmund is said to be unwilling to lose their star striker this summer after the sale of Jadon Sancho to Man United.

The Blues also face the same problem with another summer target, Declan Rice. According to Eurosport, ‘West Ham don’t want to sell Rice in the current transfer window’.
As such, Thomas Tuchel might have no new players in his squad for the Super Cup match which is scheduled to be played on the 11th of August, 2021.

Nevertheless, Chelsea still has a quality squad to play the match. Here’s how the starting XI could look like without new signings:
Thomas Tuchel could still settle for his traditional 3-4-3 formation like last season.
Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger, and Cesar Azpilicueta could form the Blues defensive trio.
Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic could play as central midfielders while Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ben Chilwell occupy the right wing-back and left wing-back positions respectively.
For the front-line, Kai Havertz could be used as a false 9, just like in the Champions League Final match against Man City.

Mason Mount and Cristian Pulisic could help stretch Villarreal’s tight defense by playing in the right wing-forward and left wing-forward positions respectively.
