I like the 3 at the back, I think it suits us. Less likely to be punished by a counter attack (which has caught us out a few times) and they should eat up all long balls thrown at us.
Going forward we’re a threat from set pieces and Digne and Coleman also have a bit more freedom down the flanks.
It worked for Chelsea two seasons ago, but the main ingredient (aside from them all being brilliant players) was the target man, Costa. If we play this formation we either need DCL or Tosun, as they’re the only players we have who can come close to holding it up.
