We ended the season well with a 4th place finish which will bring Champions League football to the Olympic Stadium next season. I changed our formation for the 2nd half of the season to a 4-1-4-1.
The reason for the change was I felt we needed more presence in the middle of the park. We managed to get this with the change and got more ball retention has a result. Noble,Lanzini and Holjberg formed a nice combination allowing our 2 wide players Cheryshev and Embolo to press on in the final 3rd.
