Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud, has revealed formation the Blues will adopt under new manager Frank Lampard, next season.
Chelsea will tackle Manchester United in their first game of the season
Giroud said he ‘feels good’ after training with Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic for the first time at the club.
The former Arsenal star is currently on pre-season tour with Chelsea and there are a few new faces to get used to in his second summer with the club.
The likes of new signing Christian Pulisic, the returning Kenedy and youngster Mason Mount have all featured alongside Giroud in the club’s pre-season friendlies with Bohemians, St Patrick’s Athletic and most recently, Kawasaki Frontale.
While he’s optimistic about what lies ahead, for the club, Giroud admits it will take a little time to strike a relationship with those newcomers on the pitch.
“We’re working on the tactics when we don’t have the ball and playing this 4-2-3-1 we have to know each other a bit better as well,” the Frenchman told Chelsea’s official website.
“This was the first time I’ve played with Christian, with Mason and with Kenedy so obviously it will take time but we feel good.
“We believe in the gaffer because he’s the right man for this situation.”
