These Chelsea fans react to Thomas Tuchel’s surprise formation change

Necessity is the mother of invention, and with key man Mason Mount out injured, and up against a unique opposition in Manchester City, Thomas Tuchel has switched up his favoured 3421 formation and moved to a 352.

With Mount out, Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho and N’Golo Kante play in a midfield 3, with Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku up front.

It’s similar to the way the team lined up against Tottenham last week in the second half, where the two forwards were able to link up quite nicely.

An extra body in midfield against Pep’s team can only help. It’s certainly a defensively solid setup.

Fans on social media were divided over the decision, but basically the theme was – Tuchel is the man, we trust him whatever he decides.

We’ll know in a couple of hours whether it was a good call.
