Chelsea threw away a two-goal lead against Roma a fortnight ago to end the game 3-3 and Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has told Antonio Conte to revert to the gameplan which saw Chelsea overcome Atletico Madrid when they face Roma in the Champions League tonight.

Chelsea defeated Atletico Madrid 2-1 away from home in a dominant midfield display in which Conte used a 3-5-2 formation. Conte used his regular 3-4-3 formation against Roma three weeks ago, but Lampard has told the Chelsea boss took use a 3-5-2 formation against the Italian giants.

“Conte will want to prove a point against Roma,” Lampard told the Evening Standard.

“Chelsea will have to play better than a fortnight ago when they did well to escape with a 3-3 draw.

“Chelsea need to defend as a team. I will be surprised if Conte doesn’t pick three in midfield and I’m sure N’Golo Kante will start if he’s fit.

“Conte needs bodies in midfield, his team struggled against them at the Bridge. Roma moved the ball around and changed the play.”
