Chelsea Formation Against Tottenham: 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3?


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has included Fernando Torres as lone striker to face Tottenham Hotspur at the White Hart Lane.

Mourinho has included Ramires to the side along with Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel, which means the Portuguese can use either 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3. The inclusion of Ramires leaves some doubt, as the Brazilian was doubtful for this tie.

The Chelsea boss had used Andre Schurrle in the wide right of 4-2-3-1 formation, so will Ramires be shifted out-wide in this case? The Brazilian has played in that position before so it won’t be a problem for him to adjust.

In this case, Ramires has been shifted out on the right hand side in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Eden Hazard plays from the left while Oscar as usual starts at no 10 position.

In a 4-3-3 formation, Mikel will drop deep allowing Lampard and Ramires to advance forward. Torres will start as central striker while Hazard and Oscar will shift to the flanks.

In any case, Mourinho can adjust his formation according to the situation of the game. So, which of the two formation Mourinho will be using today?
