For all their talk of a diamond, I think they it is really a 4-3-1-2. Anelka has skills but that isn't a natural fit for him. Otherwise it seems a solid formation, and both Drogba and Torres are going to get chances at some point.
I am not going to even bother working out how to combat it. I thought Kenny had lost it when I saw the team list for Stoke, but he got it spot on. I mean 3 CB it may have been, but you had Skrtel bursting forward like he thought he was Gerrard (although he shot like Skrtel), you had Glen Johnson in the number 9 position with a solid header from a cross that nearly was a goal. It was an amazingly fluid system and Stoke had no clue how to deal with it.
Means Chelsea have no idea what we will play, neither does the press. I hope any ITK shut the hell up as well in terms of team line-ups. We trust in Kenny. One thing I will say, is that if we are to get a result, I have a feeling Lucas is going to need a M0tM performance.
