How should Chelsea FC line up next season

Image result for chelsea fcNow that the current season is over for Chelsea FC, it's time for us to look towards the future and our future is all about changes. Changes in the manager, changes in the dressing room, changes in the players attitude and changes in decision making by the club hierarchy. Changes everywhere.

It has been confirmed that the former Juventus and current Italy national team coach Antonio Conte is set to take the reigns of Chelsea football club as the owner Roman Abramovic looks to turn around the fortunes of his club after a disastrous 2015-16 season.

So, without any further delay. Here are the players that I think will be required to get the club back to its best and I am going to consider the formation 3-5-2 that Conte so prefers.

Goal Keeper : Begovic

Courtois has been a disaster between the sticks this season and I personally feel that Begovic has been more matured there. Though Courtois has played more big games than Begovic he does not possess that commanding presence that our former No1 Cech or the current No 1 Begovic has.

Sell Courtois, bring in Leno who is young and will be a good addition for us

Defenders : Azpilicueta - Varane- Ricardo Rodriguez

Well there is no doubt in the qualities of Azpi as he has been one of our best players this season so he is the obvious choice to be our RB.

Many of you may wonder why Varane and not Zouma and the reason is quite simple. Zouma has been out with a knee injury for half a year and though he has been one of our best we simply cannot take the risk of assuming that he will be at his best as soon as he returns and we need someone else who has good experience and Varane suits the requirement. He wants regular game and that is what he will get if he joins us

Ricardo is a player who might not have an explosive pace but he is the perfect defender who can also cross like one of the best and is good set piece taker too and in addition he is young.

We can have in reserve Zouma and Baba and also please sell Ivanovic and Cahill.

Midfielders : Cuadrado - Fabregas - Naingolan - Kroos - Willian/Hazard

Not much of an explanation is required as to why these players were selected to be in the midfield. These players can bring everything to the team. Creativity, stability, flair and what not. We need not spend on Cuadrado but Naingolan and Kroos will cost us significant but we are in the progress of rebuilding our team and that is what we must do. Squeez the money bag dry and buy players that will stay with us for long term.

Sell Mikel, Matic and Oscar

Strikers : Griezmann - Costa

Costa has been our main man for the past season and the current one but he has to be one of the most selfish players I have seen. He takes the ball on his own and tries to bully his way past defenders and eventually ends us losing the ball while Griezmann takes the ball on his own and tries to dribble his way past defenders and eventually ends up scoring. He can also be unselfish and do the right thing. He will be the perfect partner for Costa for God knows that we need the physicality that Costa brings to the pitch.

Send Falcao back and keep Pato as he is happy to play second fiddle.

So, this concludes our team that I think in my opinion is capable of winning all trophies. A gentle reminder of the team once again with substitutes

          Azpilicueta - Varane - Ricardo Rodriguez
Cuadrado - Fabregas - Naingolan - Kroos - Hazard/Willian
                            Griezmann - Costa

Substitutes - Leno, Ruben Loftus Cheek, Kenedy, Hazard/Willian, Pato, Zouma, Baba, Traore

And Finally my word to my Chelsea FC : No matter what else you do, give the captain's armband to Cesc Fabregas. No one deserves it more than him.
