Chelsea got off to a winning start after the international break as the Blues defeated Wolves 5-2 away at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Chelsea’s next game is the Champions League clash with Valencia and Blues defender Fikayo Tomori believes Chelsea have the confidence getting into that game.
Tomori said after the Wolves win: “Any win gives a team confidence. Going into the Champions League it’s nice to have these three points in our back pocket. Hopefully we can produce a similar performance on Tuesday.
“We know what’s coming and hopefully we can produce. Valencia are a top team in Spain and they have a lot of technical players. Ajax we saw last year are a very good team. Lille came second in Ligue 1 and are a very good team. We will have to be on top of our game to progress.”
Chelsea are in the same group with Valencia, Ajax and Lille.
One would be wondering whether Frank Lampard would line up his squad in a 3-4-3 system after using the system against Wolves.
Lampard explained why he had decided to go with three central defenders and wing-backs for the game against Wolves.
“It’s a tough place to come,” said Lampard. “They haven’t lost here for a long time.
“They get good results against the top six teams because they defend so well and are dangerous on the counter-attack.
“We changed the system. The players took that on board really well. I’m delighted to come here and score five goals because not many teams do that.
“For ourselves, with Wolves in account. They play three at the back and they play it very well. There are two points really. One is we’ve conceded more than we’d have liked to. We had Toni back fit and to have three centre-halves gives you a bit more security on face value.
“And also I want us to be adaptable in an attacking sense. What it allowed us to do today is get Mason and Willian in really nice positions, inside wingers, behind Tammy.
“They caused Wolves exactly the problems we wanted to cause them. It was good to see the work we had done on it come off.”
