When Silva comes back into the team - who would you have as your 3?

I'd say on form and all rounded balance -

Dave Silva Cristensen

I think Rudi flaps to much and isn't great in the ball. I feel Cristensen has come on since TT took over has has looked our best defender in recent week. He looks a lot more solid and comfortable in a back 3.

Agree0 Disagree0

The same for me Wheely. The only thing is I would have Christensen in the middle.

01 Mar 2021 13:14:35
Rudiger has been excellent under TT.

01 Mar 2021 13:53:03
I have to admit he has Strasbourg but for me it’s a straight choice between him and Silva and Silva gets the nod for me!

Not really the wide CB need to have a bit of pace as a minimum requirement in a three and particularly if Alonso is playing. That is one of Rudiger best assets.
You won't see Tiago playing anywhere but centrally in a three so it comes down to where you play Christensen bearing in mind he looks best centrally himself.

01 Mar 2021 15:52:33
I don't think Christensen is best defending in a wide area. It's central role or nothing for both him and Silva for me.

01 Mar 2021 16:09:17
On present form: Silva Christensen Rudiger - also a more balanced 3.

01 Mar 2021 16:57:58
Silva won't be playing in one of the wide roles it's not his game.
Of the two Christensen would be better playing one of the wide roles but Azpi is the Capt. and better suited.
Tough call for TT and its possible he might keep Silva on the bench for a few games when he's fit if Andreas keeps performing at the same level.

Christensen is playing very well- considering that, I think Silva might have to wait until Chelsea’s FA cup game against Sheffield United. for a start. Sometimes when you try to touch or make changes to a system (defence or midfield) that’s working very well, it back fires.
I don’t think Christensen or Silva will be very good playing from the side, they are both at their best playing from the centre.
Funny though how Zouma’s name is gradually becoming mute.

02 Mar 2021 14:36:35
Zouma has to play to complement the backline. I would choose can, Silva and zouma. cath skippoand has more defensive instinct than ac, are Silva is more experienced and has good positioning and is also good on the air not minding his height while xouma has aerial abilities for set pieces than at and ac. ac seem to have mistakes when pressed and could still be bullied only time will tell if his resurgence has finally put those his frailties behind him. He obviously is the guy to step in for Silva when not available.
