Coming off a 2-2 draw against Tottenham in a pre season Friendly despite the side stacked with star players in every position, Tuchel would hope his side step up their game against Europa League Champions Villarreal.
In the Goalkeeping Department we have Kepa competing with New signing Bettineli for Second Choice position in the bench with hopefully Mendy being the first choice Goalkeeper in the match against Villarreal.
In Center Defense we have Thaigo Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Zouma, Christensen and Azipiculeta competing for a three man Defense slot, with hopefully Tuchel going for a three man center defense line comprising of Christensen, Silva and Rudiger a proven Defense line that won him most matches last season.
A Midfield with exceptional players but we all know Kante would start but who would partner him? Well Kovasic or Jorginho form during training sessions would decide that.
In attack we have players like Mason mount, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic would all compete also not forgetting Romelu Lukaku who is rumoured to join before the Match.
Wingback slots? We have Ben Chilwell, Recce james, Emerson competing for the wide areas with Hudson odoi not included, does that mean a sign that his chelsea career is on the road to end?
Well it was noted that a 23 man squad is allowed and chelsea have two more slots maybe those slots are for Romelu Lukaku and Callum Hudson odoi hopefully.

Kepa, Bettinelli, Mendy, Rudiger, Alonso, Christensen, Thiago Silva, Zouma, Chilwell, James, Azpilicueta, Emerson, Jorginho, Kante, Pulisic, Kovacic, Mount, Ziyech, Havertz, Abraham, Werner.
