As Saturday’s dismal draw with Manchester United underlined, the Blues boss has solved one problem with his change of tactics but created another
In the 32nd minute of Saturday evening’s Premier League clash at Old Trafford, Christian Pulisic cut inside on to his right foot and scuffed a shot towards goal. David de Gea claimed the ball with ease.
It was the only save the Manchester United goalkeeper had to make during a dismal scoreless draw with Chelsea.
Frank Lampard’s decision to adopt a conservative approach, playing with five at the back, undoubtedly contributed significantly to what was a shocking spectacle.
