The composition of Chelsea for the season 2018-2019

In the 2017-2018 season, the “aristocrats” finished in 5th place in the Premier League, which was an unsatisfactory result for them. The result of an unsuccessful season was the change of head coach - one Italian Antonio Conte was replaced by another Italian Maurizio Sarri, who before this event “ignited” with FC Napoli in Italy. The composition of “Chelsea” for the season 2018-2019 has changed: the new head coach creates a team for a new style of play (attacking). The main transfer events of the club are listed below.

Forwards

The line of attack has remained the same since last season: Alvaro Morato remained the main striker of the team, apparently, the coach believes that the Spaniard will show his level and bring the coveted goals.

In addition, during the season it will be interesting to see how the most expensive goalkeeper in the world, Kep Arrisabalaga, will fit into the submarine.
