I thought we actually looked far more defensively secure with Kante replacing Jorginho - Kante and Kovacic provide far more protection to our centre-backs than Jorginho and Kovacic (soz, didn't mean to burst the pro-Jorginho bubble) .

Hmmm, it’s tricky because jorginho doesn’t deserve to be dropped, but like the Azpilicueta / James situation James playing v zaha was best tactically. And kante kovecic plus a no10 who will press like mad will be important, Mount hasn’t been great last few weeks and but has an engine on him, I’d go for the same line up v palace,

Kovacic and Kante is easily our strongest pivot, both good defensively and have the engine to run all game. I agree it's harsh to drop Jorginho but Kovacic has been the better player this season and you simply can't drop Kante. Sure some people would say play the 3 of them together but that doesn't work for me. It's far too defensive and not having a midfielder who can run inbetween the lines and contribute with goals or assists hurts us. 4231 with a Kante and Kovacic pivot with Mount or Pulisic at the 10 is the way to go for me. Then use 433 as well once Ruben is back fit.

the trios performance against crystal palace was great, but I wouldn't get carried away as I spot some misplaced passes from kovacic, he seems too apprehensive and under pressure. jorg, kante and mount will always be my best bet. A fluid midfield, ball retention is better with jorg around.

Jorginho is the main player in Lampard team sheet and rightfully so. I don't want to get into any debates but he is ahead of the trio for me. His creativity is what does it for me. Leader on the pitch.

OscarAY; I disagree with your assessment of Kovacic, I think the trio (of Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic) are all good at the moment and all bring something different (that's important) to our midfield. I feel it will be quite a selection headache (for Lampard) for the game against Manchester City- we will see.

One thing I did notice in Jorginho's absence was that the team had difficulty moving the ball quickly from the defense into attacking areas. Jorginho is great at finding space deep and providing a link. I think kovacic is more than capable of doing this and would improve in this capacity if called upon to do so regularly but I was very keen to discern differences in his absence and that was the biggest one for me.

Agree 100 percent TK.
