Frank Lampard was flirting with the idea of a 4-4-2 as far back as January.

Regardless, few expected a variant of the shape in the form of a 4-2-2-2 to be used on the opening day of the Premier League season.

Altogether, 4-2-2-2 showed promise but it requires a few tweaks for perfection.

This was a Premier League match, but physically, Chelsea is still in preseason.

Most teams train for about two weeks before their first preseason match.

The actions of the front four were the main driving force of the shape.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek, either no longer willing to trust his legs post injury (understandable) or simply not physically able post injury (also understandable) was used as a quasi target man up top.
