How Tuchel would play Koulibaly and Sterling in a 3-5-2 Formation.
Three at the back requires the flanking Defenders to have speed one part Koulibaly knows like the back of his palm.

Sterling and Havertz in Attack is enough to dismantle any opposition.
How Tuchel would play Koulibaly and Sterling in a 4-3-3 Formation Next Season
Tuchel is Hardly a fan of this Tactical Set-up and has shown his inability to be flexible when it comes to this formation but he had some success with it last season though with gives an hint if he might want to use a 4-3-3 formation next season.
Sterling in the Left wing in a front three, Werner Playing Center forward and Ziyech playing Right wing would be so illegal.
That’s a Combination of Speed and Flair in Chelsea Attack next season.
In defense Koulibaly partnering Silva in a back two might not be too appealing in the pitch as both players are currently in their 30’s and lack part of the energy they had when they were young. That doesn’t mean they can’t perform together at a back two because the speed Reece James and Ben Chilwell possess would be fairly enough to make the Back two Functional.
In Midfield Jorginho Kovasic and Havertz would be Just too good to complement the Attack and Havertz would operate in a free role alongside Hakim Ziyech.
