In the past two Premier League games we have seen Jose Mourinho switch to a back three, bring an extra man into midfield and chase results. On both occasions it's worked but I just wonder what you think about his tactical gambles?

He stated a few weeks ago that he will almost always chase results and would be willing to take risks in order to win three points rather than settle for a draw.

Against Norwich and Cardiff as stated above, the changes he made worked and treat and we overpowered our opposition. I just wonder, what happens when we come against our title rivals starting with Manchester City?

God forbid it happens but picture the scene, Chelsea are up against it against City and are behind. Now knowing City normally play with two up front, would you be in favour of Jose making a similar switch to three on two at the back and putting on an additional man in our attacking third?

The problem we have (and so far we have been lucky that Norwich and Cardiff never took advantage) is that people are aware of his philosophy and is more than likely to make the change if we do need to chase the game.

For example, up against the likes of United, City and Arsenal, the opposition would look to counter our approach and this is where we could become unstuck!

What I will say is that for the past couple of seasons, I am tired with watching games we have drawn and those we should be winning! We have the players, we have the ability to beat these teams week in, week out and when it hasn't happened and whoever has been in charge at the time decides to settle for a draw, it's frustrating.

I really like the approach to the game Mourinho has! I would much rather we try to win games we should be winning (such as the last two Premier League games we have won) than to sit on a point.

One thing to note though and Saturday's game against Cardiff is the perfect example of this, Once Chelsea took the lead he made another defensive change to revert back to a back four and to protect the lead with a better defensive shape.

So what do you people think about Jose's approach? It's won us six important points that has taken us back up the table.

Do you agree with the gamble he takes or would you rather we take calculated risks?

Carefree & KTBFFH!
