Manchester United had already beat Chelsea thrice this season and this meeting was their fourth meeting of the season and Chelsea were expected to win this one or else, the critics will be so much for Lampard.
And it turned out that Lampard was well prepared for this encounter and it seemed as if he won the match even before the ball was kicked with his Tactical plans. Although there were good performances all over the pitch – Kurt Zouma, Mateo Kovacic, Olivier Giroud and Mason Mount in particular.
The Chelsea boss switched to a 3-4-3 and it appears that this formation was the reason Manchester united game plan was disorganized. Marcos Alonso and Reece James were playing as both fullbacks, amd and this made Chelsea's defense line up to look as if it was a 5-man defense and when Chelsea were attacking, both players will be playing as left and right midfielders.
Marcos Alonso always shines in the 3-4-3, and he picked up an assist from the left which Cesar Azpilicueta grabbed one from the opposite side.
