Glad we are going to 433. Hated last season's 3511.

Agreed mate. The 3 at the back is good as long as it is that- three defenders. However too often last season we saw 5 at the back with 2 holding midfielders, was quite shocking to watch. My only concern is that we don't really have the necessary full backs for 4 at the back anymore. I guess Azpi at RB but who plays LB?

IMO, from the little I've seen of Emerson, he's good enough to play the LB position.

I never watched Emerson before he joined us and I'll be honest I was so busy with work the last year that I hardly watched the few games that he did play for us. But heard a few good things! Guess Alonso and Emerson can fight it out for now and if needs be we can replace them in January or next summer! What about our back up RB? Not a fan of Zappacosta at all and don't think Moses will cut it at RB, though I'd still prefer him over Zappacosta and he's homegrown. going to be a very interesting few weeks.

Where Emerson has an advantage over Alonso is pace, Alonso is too slow. Both have good crosses and shot but Alonso has the advantage in the heading department. Against pacy teams we have to play Emerson especially if Hazard stays as we need to use the overlap more than we have done.

{Ed001's Note - I would say Emerson's main advantage is that he provides width, while Alonso spends most of the game pretending to be a centre forward.}
