Chelsea are unbeatable :Tuchel’s latest formation revealed: How Chelsea lined up in Arsenal win

Formation

Thomas Tuchel used the usual 3-4-3 formation in the London derby. The manager made three changes to the starting XI after the Palace game.

Chalobah was benched as James was reinstated at right wing-back, with Azpilicueta moving to right centre-back.

Lukaku was given a nod over Werner as Tuchel said he bought the striker to start games, not to have him play off the bench.

Tactics

Speaking about the tactical side of the game, James was tasked with running behind Kieran Tierney and Reece really excelled at it as he assisted Lukaku’s opener before scoring

The same applied to Alonso, who was often found in an extremely advanced position.

The Blues exploited Arsenal’s poor defensive organisation, catching them on the break several times.

Long balls from Rudiger and Christensen were especially helpful in that regard as Chelsea transitioned from defence to attack at supersonic speed.

At the back, the Blues defenders were instructed to drop deeper so the pacy Arsenal attackers would find it difficult to run into spaces behind them.
