4-4-2 (Zaha and Benteke up front)

Can we all now agree that with a midfield lacking the quality of RLC and Cabaye that this is the only way to go? Itís so bizarre that we played 4-4-2 all pre season and at the start of the season, played well and then jettisoned it for the failed 4-3-3. It doesnít work with our current personnel. Benteke has been fit since January. Itís truly bizarre that it has taken Roy until April to see that Benteke and Zaha in a 2 (not a 3) is our most threatening frontline. Benteke needs a runner close by, and thatís why he works so well with Zaha, especially away from home. Sign some proper attacking goal scoring wingers for the home games but keep the 4-4-2 and keep the narrow defensive mids for the away games. The team is working away from home. We just need to be more attacking at home. But 4-4-2 is here to stay, surely?

Agree benteke needs someone alongside him......that neednt be wilf.
I hope roy tries a game with him and bats together.
Cheik would have to lift his game though if he were to play alongside luka in the middle......which would be required to provide attack / defence balance

When Wilf played in a front two there were weeks and weeks of posts saying he is more effective wide.

That was a front two with Townsend, who can’t exactly hold the ball up or flick it on for Wilf. I’d still like to see Benteke and Batshauyi up front together, but if that’s not gonna happen, Wilf and Benteke going forward please.

Wilf & Benteke played well in there yesterday. If we do play 442 then I think we need to set up as we did yesterday with 4 centre midfield players, which would mean no starting spot for Townsend.

I think Kouyate is great for the team, he provides that physical presence that weíve not had since Jedi & he covers so much ground, disrupting the opposition. I really like him.

Also having Meyer on the left gets him in the team, allows us to retain a bit more possession & he does some nice link up play with Wilf. It also takes some physical responsibility off him compared to when heís played in the middle.

I thought it worked really well yesterday, but we need multiple systems for different opposition; 442,433 & 451.

So pleased with yesterdayís result & performance. Brilliant.

We played 442 with RLC and cabaye too. Maybe it just suits us more.
