Chelsea starting XI with Raheem Sterling: Romelu Lukaku is getting forgotten, doesn’t win the trophy of pride

Estimated Chelsea starting XI with Raheem Sterling . The Blues are increasingly confident of being able to sign Sterling from Manchester City in the 2022 summer transfer window.

Sterling has been one of Manchester City‘s key players in the last four years. Since being handled by Josep Guardiola, the winger has become one of the most deadly wingers in England.

This situation began to change since last season. Sterling has been sitting on the bench more often than being a starter in the City attack. Despite the success of bringing his team to victory, Sterling was not too happy.

Sterling is also claimed to be ready to move clubs in order to get regular playing opportunities ahead of the 2022 World Cup, and Chelsea are reportedly ready to provide that.

At Chelsea, Sterling could be a suitable replacement for Romelu Lukaku who is reportedly getting close to returning to his old club, Inter Milan on loan.

So, how about Chelsea’s starting eleven mainstay next season with Sterling’s presence? Here’s the full review.


Edouard Mendy in action against Palmeiras in the 2021 Club World Cup final

Edouard Mendy

Mendy ended the 2021/22 season yesterday with a record of 49 appearances, 40 goals conceded and 23 clean sheets in all competitions that Chelsea went to.

Despite his slightly declining performance in the 2021/22 season yesterday, Edouard Mendy’s position under the Chelsea bar is believed to still be immovable.

The existence of Kepa Arrizabalaga still will not be able to make Mendy evicted from the post of Chelsea’s main goalkeeper Thomas Tuchel.

Reece James

Reece James is not only good at defending, he is also actively assisting the attack. Last season he recorded nine assists in the Premier League stage. He will still be a mainstay in the right-back sector.

Trevoh Chalobah

Chalobah has not yet had the chance to play regularly from Tuchel. However, every time he is trusted to appear, he always plays impressively.

Thiago Silva

Problem experience, Thiago Silva no doubt. The Brazilian defender has proven to be still solid at the back at the age of 37 years.

Ben Chilwell

Last season, Ben Chilwell took turns filling the left-back position with Marcos Alonso. However, rumors of Alonso’s departure make Chilwell likely to become the main left-back next season.


Chelsea’s Mason Mount

Mason Mount

Mount is one of the brightest Chelsea academy players. Mount will still be a mainstay of Chelsea’s midfield next season.


As an anchor midfielder, Jorginho’s capacity cannot be doubted. Tuchel will most likely still trust Jorginho to set the tempo of his team’s game.

N’Golo Kante

It must be admitted, Kante’s appearance in the 2021/22 season has decreased compared to the previous season. However, now he is ready to bounce back and become a mainstay of Chelsea’s midfield.


Chelsea’s Kai Havertz

Christian Pulisic

Injury storms had made Pulisic’s career at Chelsea stagnant. However, slowly he was able to rise. Next season might be the time for Pulisic to prove his quality.

Kai Havertz

After Romelu Lukaku often did not live up to expectations, Tuchel began to often play Havertz as a false nine. The result did not disappoint. The same thing could be repeated in the next season.

Raheem Sterling

During his time at Liverpool and Manchester City, Sterling was often played in the left wing attacking position. This post is also likely to be occupied by Sterling if he comes to Chelsea.

Romelu Lukaku’s expression after breaking into the Wolverhampton goal

Romelu Lukaku is considered to have failed to meet expectations at Chelsea. Lukaku has recently been said to want to return to Inter Milan.

Lukaku only returned to Chelsea in the summer of 2021. The Belgian sticker was purchased from Inter Milan for a fee of 115 million euros.

However, Lukaku actually had bad luck in the Premier League. The former Manchester United player struggled to shine with Chelsea.

Lukaku was then widely rumored to be leaving Chelsea in the summer of 2022. One club that has been heavily linked with the 29-year-old is Inter Milan.

Here are five reasons Lukaku should leave Chelsea and return to Inter Milan.

Romelu Lukaku was recruited by Chelsea to perfect Thomas Tuchel’s attack. He is expected to score regularly for the Blues.

Tuchel played Lukaku as the spearhead in a 3-4-3 scheme. However, the system did not work well for Lukaku.

As a result, Tuchel was often seen as a substitute for Lukaku throughout last season. The Belgian bomber ended the season scoring 15 goals from 44 games in all competitions.

Romelu Lukaku made a lot of noise in December last year. In an interview with Sky Sport , Lukaku has openly admitted that he is not happy with his situation at Chelsea.

Not only that, Lukaku also expressed his desire to return to Inter Milan. These comments immediately made Lukaku reap criticism from Chelsea fans.

The Belgian striker has publicly apologized. However, it did not restore the confidence of the Blues supporters to him.

Before experiencing difficulties at Chelsea, Romelu Lukaku thrived at Inter Milan. He was able to score 64 goals in 95 games during his two seasons with the Nerazzurri.

Lukaku also played an important role in bringing Inter to the Scudetto in the 2020/21 season. He also managed to win the title of Serie A’s best player that season.

Lukaku seems more suited to playing in Italy. Returning to play for Inter may be able to restore the career of the Belgian national team bomber.

Romelu Lukaku helped Inter Milan to the Serie A title in the 2020/21 season. However, the Nerazzurri failed to defend the title after Lukaku left for Chelsea.

Lukaku wants to return to Inter this summer. The presence of the Belgian bomber will clearly improve Simone Inzaghi’s Inter front line.

Inter are clearly targeting the Scudetto next season. Lukaku can form a deadly trio with Paulo Dybala and Lautaro Martinez to make that happen.

After being appointed coach of Inter Milan, Simone Inzaghi actually really hopes to work with Romelu Lukaku. However, his wish did not come true.

Inzaghi had previously only coached Lukaku for more than a week at the start of the 2020/21 season. After that, the bomber left the Giuseppe Meazza to return to Chelsea.

Inzaghi will certainly welcome Lukaku’s return with open arms this summer. He is ready to make Lukaku the center of his game next season.
