Ampadu, 18, is a versatile player, having played at Centre-Back, right-back and in midfield throughout Sarri’s reign. He could get a run out in the left of the midfield or even be used as a right back to cover for Cesar Azpilicueta.
Loftus-Cheek, 23, has started just one Premier League match and it seemed like he was getting towards really fighting for a regular spot until he picked up an unfortunate back injury. The Englishman is back fighting fit now and it’s time for him to make his stamp on the campaign.
David Luiz or Antonio Rudiger need to sit a bit of time out and give Christensen his chance to play in the heart of the defence to see if they can stop the rot.
