Frank Lampard has had a tough start to management at the top level, with his first two competitive matches being against the two most decorated clubs in England, Manchester United and Liverpool.

In his opening contest, despite some general positives relating to certain aspects of Chelsea's performance, Lampard's team suffered at the hands of United's speed, mobility and penetrative threat.

For the Chelsea boss to acknowledge that alterations were needed ahead of the Super Cup meeting is encouraging for Chelsea supporters, as it offers an insight into Lampard's practical thinking, and willingness to adjust.

4-2-3-1 was the shape of choice at Old Trafford, but against Liverpool, Lampard opted to mirror Klopp's preference.

Passes Per Defensive Action (PPDA) offers an insight into how frequently a team presses, by measuring how many opposing passes are allowed before a defensive action is made to regain the ball.

Ultimately, these are subtle changes, but they made life notably more difficult for Liverpool in comparison to United.

The direction of Chelsea's season remains to be seen at this early stage, but the situation appears promising considering Lampard's responsiveness to problem solving.
