Frank Lampard has all the players he needs in order to beat Krasnodar very well, only if he chooses the right formation.
The full squad that travelled to Russia are compact enough to score more than five goals against the Russian side in the matchday two in the ongoing UEFA Champions League.
The challenge Chelsea have been having after signing more players than any other team in England in the summer transfer window is the inability to combine the stars to form a Killer’s squad.
Recall that players like Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Kai Harvetz and others have joined the Blues.
Now let’s take a look at the full squad that travelled to face Krasnodar in Russia.
Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, Willy Caballero, Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma, Edouard Mendy, Mateo Kovacic, Olivier Giroud, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson Odoi, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech, Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta, Kai Havertz, Emerson Palmieri, Karlo Ziger.
Lampard should not use the 4-4-2 formation or the 4-3-3 formation because the Russian side, Krasnodar may find it comfortable for them.
If Chelsea’s manager wants to score more than five goals, here is the good formation that will deliver the good.
4-2-3-1 will be difficult for any team to handle based on the type of stars available for Chelsea.
The focus here is not on the players that Lampard will use but the right formation that will allow the team to score more goals.
