'Tomori and kovacic returns'-See the formation Chelsea would use against Manutd on Sunday

Manchester united and Chelsea will be clashing tomorrow at the semi-final round of FA cup which will take place in Wembley. This will probably be the 4th time these two rivals are meeting this season. It has not been favourable for Lampard in all these past meetings with Ole Gunner Solskjaer.In other ways ,it could be said that Lampard has never won Solskjaer since they both took up managerial works. Manchester united will also break a record tomorrow if they win the blues as it will be the first team Manutd has ever beaten Chelsea four times in a season. However, with the return of Tomori and Mateo kovacic, things could turn around for the London team if Lampard uses the formation above.

Yhe 3-4-3 formation shown above would be suitable to conquer the red devils at Wembley stadium on Sunday. Olivier Giroud should probably start due to his goalscoring form over Tammy Abraham and Michy Batsuayi. The wingers will be Christian Pulisic and Hudson-Odoi, improvement have been noticed in Hudson-Odoi's recent matches added to his greater number of goals in FA cup this season as well as Pulisic who is the blues' current star man since the departure of Eden Hazard. Mason Mount and Mateo Kovacic are seen at the deep defensive midfield position although i will prefer Barkley to start ahead of Mount who might as well enter as a substitute.

The wing-backs are Marcos Alonso(left) and Reece James(right),they will be both attack and defensively minded in order to withstand Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood. The 3 center-backs here are Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma and Azplicueta. There is no doubt, that is really a strong trio who would probably resist Martial, Pogba and Bruno Fernandes'attacking combo. Kepa Arrizabalaga should probably start, his inconsistency have always been a set-back for the London club and have also forced them to start looking for other options.

Lampard should use this team tomorrow in order to prevent Manutd from breaking that disgraceful record. The English manager(Lampard) should also advice his team to be very careful with Manutd attackers especially in the 18-yard box so as to avoid penalty. From this look of things this season, there is no doubt that VAR has been so favourable to Manchester united which is not supposed to be, it happened in almost all their matches including that of Crystal palace. I believe that Lampard will obviously get a good result if he uses this formation.
