Possible Chelsea Lineup under Conte’s 4-2-4 Formation- How it could Look [Analysis]

The Mirror is reporting that next season’s Chelsea Boss, Antonio Conte, will supposedly use an aggressive 4-2-4 formation, instead of the 3-5-2 formation that the coach currently uses with the Italian National Team.

Yes, that’s right, 4-2-4! It would not be completely new for Conte either, as he employed this formation while at Bari in Italy. Although this 4-2-4 formation has not been confirmed by Conte, it is interesting to think about how the Chelsea Lineup might look like in this setup.

Furthermore, Conte is being linked with moves for Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann, playmaker Javier Pastore (PSG), and Juventus central defender Leonardo Bonucci. For the purpose of this 4-2-4 lineup analysis, I’m assuming that Conte will be able to land these three players, as well as retain the services of Hazard (dreaming doesn’t cost anything!).

It is very likely that the 4-2-4 will turn into a 4-4-2 while on defense, otherwise the midfield would be overwhelmed on the defense. Though, the graphic below shows how the Lineup will look like on paper. What are your thoughts on the 4-2-4?

  1. I dont think it will be right to field in the young lads now becos we haven’t got the stability and consistency needed.they will have their chance if the team is balance, or they’ll play the lads in the FA Cup and c’shield.one of the biggest mistake chelsea will do is to let JT go,the absense of leadership is costing chelsea,so we need his leadership skill.for goodness sake,chelsea are a big club,we need goog players not names,some of the best legs in the game haven’t got much media hype,the chelsea scouts need to be proactive and sensible in the kind of players they bring to the bidge.take a look at westham,tottemham and leicester for example,their players aren’t expensive,but they’r arguably the best in the leaugue .we miss the days of great players like drogba,Essien,makalele,Anelka,Ashley cole,salomon kalu,maluda,lampard etc.chelsea need to be champions again pls.

  2. IF CHELSEA WILL BE PATIENT THEY WOULD INTRODUCE THE JUNIORS AND GIVE THEM TWO SEASONS TO MATURE BEFORE CHALLENGING FOR AND DOMINATING THE EPL AND THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FOR A DECADE OR MORE. THIS YEAR WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A YEAR WE DID THAT BUT WE WASTED IT ON OLD LEGS.

  3. I think Chelsea must not longer stsy in the past. Its time to say goodbay to a monument like Jhon Terry. Further Fabregas is on his way back and Cahill is not good enoufgh. Time to Let Ivanovic go. When you can buy two verry good defenders plus Griesmann and Naingolan there is music in the air.

  4. Terry is old truth! but we need him,let ivanovic,Matic,Oscar,Remy,Facoa,Costa leave so that caudrado,grizman,Hazard with pato will be there.

  5. Oscar over Willian?, and Baba Rahman?. Where’s Fabregas, Matic, Zouma, Cahill?. who in that lineup is captain over John Terry?? Ivanovic?.
