“Not a bad lineup” – Some Chelsea fans react to Mason Mount missing out as Lampard switches systems » Chelsea News

Chelsea have announced their team for the game against Manchester United this evening, and there are some interesting changes.

The formation switches to a 343, allowing Cesar Azpilicueta to return to the team in a back 3. The man who drops out is Mason Mount, known as one of manager Frank Lampard’s favourite players in the squad.

It’s a ruthless move from the manager, who clearly thinks the tactical tweak is worth the loss of a player he considers important. There’s also an element of tiredness, with Mount, Havertz and Timo Werner all looking like they could do with a break.

Fans on social media were unsure about the move, with the Mount-haters happy to see him out of the team, while others were more positive about the formation change at least.

This front three should be a threat. “Not a bad lineup,” as one quite conservative commenter put it.

Not a bad line-up to be honest.

3-4-3 formation with Zouma, Silva & Azpilicueta at the back.

Lamp’s does his 3 at the back curve ball, I like it. Still lets us attack with 5, but gives us a more stable base for counters and naturally gives us more room to counter too #CFC #MUNCHE

Boring and predictable
