Chelsea could be seen in a new formation as Lukaku is finally unveiled as Blues new striker.
Tuchel is known to always lining his men in a 3-4-3 format and 3-5-2 but it could be seen in a different shape with the new season already started.
With the German manager confirming plans to line up two strikers, his game against Peterborough already proved his plans for a new formation.
Chelsea provided as many as 6 goals in the game while lining up in a 4-2-4 formation and it could be seen more this new season.

Speaking ahead of their game against Arsenal, Tuchel said; “Every player wants to have a regular position he can fight for.
“I know this very well, but at the same time it can be also a huge advantage to be able to play in more than one position, because then you can be the alternative for more minutes. So there’s an up-side and a down-side.
“I’m very happy with Timo, Christian and Kai because they have put a lot of effort and intensity into the team.
“With the addition of Romelu. We get the number-one striker and we want to have him on the pitch. This is very clear.
“If you do this kind of transfer, we are absolutely sure we want to have him on the pitch, but I think he will lift the pressure off the shoulders of the young guys, from Kai, Timo and Christian, because Romelu is the kind of personality who loves responsibility.
“I think we have now with Romelu the chance also to play with two strikers, like they did at Inter with him, or to continue with three strikers.
“We will see now how this works out and we will find a solution for the players around him.”
Below is the possible set up.
