Can Chelsea try the False 9?
False 9 has became famous since Spain used it during the Euro 2012 and has been used by Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona and many more clubs down the road. A false 9 tactic uses the formation of 4-6-0. This is how it looks like.
Lines with arrow shows which defender and midfielder is marking whom and the line without arrow shows the defender, who does not want to follow Torres. Now Torres has two choices to make. Either he runs at the defender or picks out a pass to the flanks or to one of the midfielders. Lets have a look at that.
Now I chose Torres because he knows how the False 9 works, thanks to him being a part of the Spanish national team and Del Bosque. Another option that we can use is that instead of Torres, we use Hazard as it its conventional to use a midfielder as False 9 and in Hazard’s place use someone with pace like Moses or Sturridge.
