Lampard reveals what he loves about the 4-3-3 system

Since the start of the season, Frank Lampard has mostly set Chelsea up in a 4-2-3-1 system, as he decided to play with a double pivot in midfield.

However, in the second half against Krasnodar, in the Champions League tie away at Russia, Lampard switched to a 4-3-3 system, and the attack became rampant.

Lampard decided to roll out the 4-3-3 from the start against Burnley, and it was to devastating effect, as the Blues were on fire against Sean Dyche’s side.

With N’Golo Kante sitting in front of the defence, Mason Mount and Kai Havertz played as two No. eights, and the midfield has so much fluidity.

Explaining what he liked about the 4-3-3 system, Lampard said: “I liked the balance of the midfield.

“N’Golo Kante was fantastic behind Mason and Kai, and there was a fluidity about it where they could drop out and get on the ball in deeper areas. There was a lot of energy in that midfield as well as quality.

“We have played slightly differently in the last couple of games, and there have been a lot of positives. It doesn’t mean we can’t change back, but it’s great to see what it did for Kai and for Mason. It brought the best attributes out of what people would regard as really offensive players.”

    When you see the new Chelsea, you forget the mistake of the past. Great team, excellent cohesion and understanding among the defence line.

    I see a new James and of course big head zouma that can damage any goal post, zouma the coup plotters.

    Good job the front guys, glad kai is settling down fine with the new Hazard ‘Timo’, that is my new Hazard for now with the swerving moves, you can’t beat that, great ziyeth, hope i got the name spells correctly, anyway, my new morrocan, guess that will make sense. Pulisic, Mount, great boys, chilwell the dancer, dust off marcos, pity.

    Mendy welcome and keep the good work at the post but please don’t get carried away, we the chelsean from the Ireland loves you.

    Hmmmmm! Great Lampard, the unpredictable manager, i guess he will have a good dancing steps with the kids and mama at home.

    Good job and looking forward to the BEST of my Chelsea.
