Finally, back to a back 3. I said it from the outset, our defence cannot defend and our midfielders do not get goals so this has to be tried, especially as Alonso is so productive in the formation. The only shame is that we do not have Luiz who is excellent in the middle of the 3.

This is to counter Wolves set-up. Would be very surprised to see this formation with any regularity.

Is it not just a 4-2-3-1 playing Rudiger RB and Azpi LB with Alonso on the left of midfield?

 I see the official site has interpreted that way too.  Though I really hope not.  What is the point of having all this pressing play without 3 midfielders?

If we go back to the dull (depressing even ) way that Conte's teams played, then there is at least a logic to 3 at the back.  But playing with the Panache of a Lampard team is just daft with 3 at back.  
The smart thing to do is simply play a more cautious way while sticking to 433.  

Fingers crossed that Christensen or Azpi will be in midfield (but not expecting it).

Christensen or Azpi or Alonso - could be

I doubt it - SFL hasn't shown too much concern about oppo set up to date.  This would have been perfect for Man U.

Interesting. We needed to change something. Hopefully this is the remedy.

I read it as:

Kepa

Azpi Rudiger Tomori Alonso

Kovacic Jorginho Christensen

Willian Tammy Mount

 

Frank has said before Christensen is a midfield option and I think Frank realises we need more bodies in the middle of the park. I could be wrong but would be surprised to see 343.

 

It could also be:

Kepa

Tomori Rudiger Christensen Azpi

Kovacic Jorginho

Willian Mount Alonso

Tammy

 

But this would surprise me.

Hard to say what formation, 343 looks the obvious choice but it could be something else. Problem I have is with the wingback combination. Neither of them will run up and down all day so we may get stuck in a 523. Still not sure this sorts out the problem in midfield unless it is a 3 man midfield. I can see Wolves overrunning the midfield if it is just 2. Good to see Lamps trying things out though ,defensively something needs to change.
