Arsenal legend Paul Merson has urged Chelsea boss Frank Lampard to ditch the 4-3-3 formation as the Blues have become predictable.

Lampard has been advised to adopt a formation in which Havertz can operate behind two strikers.

“At the moment it does not look like there is a plan, Chelsea look like a group of top players who have been told to just go out and play,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“Lampard went with the pace of Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech against Manchester City but after the game he probably thought he should have gone with Olivier Giroud. That’s down to inexperience and learning.

“They need to ditch the 4-3-3, get Kai Havertz behind a front two, get two up front, play that way and cause teams problems, because as it stands things are predictable with Chelsea.”
