After watching Real Madrid's Champions League success and the success of the German team in the World Cup, I am wondering if Jose Mourinho should consider making a switch to the 4-3-3 formation.
I have always liked the 4-3-3 formation as to me anyway, it looks solid and more stable than the current system we play with (4-2-3-1).
It's my view that the signing of Cesc Fabregas could be key for any decision being taken based on where the manager believes is his best position.
Some would argue that he is better coming from a deeper position as in his Arsenal days and some would champion Fabregas playing in the number ten position. I personally believe he should play in a similar role to that of Frank Lampard either side of the holding midfielder again, in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
With reverting back to the 4-3-3 formation you would imagine Nemanja Matic would be the first choice for the holding role but with a battle with Oriol Romeu for that position over the course of the season.
In the midfield positions either side of the holding midfielder, Cesc Fabregas would command the regular start leaving the likes of Ramires, Oscar and Marco Van Ginkel competing for the place next to him.
Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle, Willian and Salah would all compete for a start in the wide areas.
With the problems we had last term with players not tracking back the 4-3-3 provides better cover for those problems and I honestly believe this is a formation we should revert to. Just think back to how successful Chelsea were in Jose's first term here playing that way.
What do you people think? Do you think the 4-3-3 formation is something Jose should seriously consider?
