Conte goes with hazard as false nine.

Well that's a disgrace if I'm honest hazard won't be effective at all basicly we have lost before kick off cause playing hazard up front worked so well at Bournemouth when we got beat 3-0 yet both strikers are fit what a joke.

We need a big man upfront to hold the ball up and bring Hazard and Willian into play. Disappointed in that aspect, Giroud would have been a perfect starter tonight, we need a focal point upfront simply so we can hoof the ball up field and one of our big strikers can hold onto it. Because we know we're going to be under immense pressure defensively.

Disappointing. No point putting the ball into the box in the air, no threat at all. The midfield could be over run, Fabregas cannot tackle and Alonso lacks pace. Very surprised Pedro over Morata.

Plus with Fabregas in a 2 man midfield too. It’s not looking good imo. It would seem like conte wants us to outbarca Barcelona 😂 which could go horrendously wrong if our passing isn’t great (which it has been at times this season)

I was stunned to see no target man especially given how badly having no true striker has gone for us this season, however Conte has apparently been training and preparing for this game over a month so I trust him. Fingers crossed he’s got it spot on. COYB!

(RWB) Zappacosta (LWB) Alonso

(CM) Fab (CM) Kante
(AM) Hazard

(RS) Morata (LS) Giroud.

the reason why I think he has gone them 3 up front is for quick pressing and counter.

So far we've looked good.

We certainly look fit and rested.

I expect Morata in the the second half.
