Frank Lampard’s clever transfer trick hands Thomas Tuchel early tactical edge over Antonio Conte

Chilwell’s 50th appearance for Chelsea was unexpected, but his achievement reminds fans that they must applaud Lampard for giving Tuchel an early advantage against Conte, should the Italian move to Manchester United.

According to the Manchester Evening News, former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is interested in the Manchester United position, and Thomas Tuchel has already been given an advantage.

After becoming famous for his back-three system in 2016 for Italy and later Chelsea, Conte is largely considered as one of football’s most thorough tacticians.

His legendary plans resemble Tuchel’s in some ways – albeit just on the surface – and both managers largely rely on their wing-backs to provide their teams a tactical edge.

Despite the fact that the Chelsea manager has had a lot of success since his arrival in January owing to Ben Chilwell’s efforts, Gareth Southgate banished the Blues left-back to the bench during the summer.

Despite a shaky start to the season, Chilwell has jumped ahead of Luke Shaw, who might be Conte’s next left wing-back, in the fight for a starting spot for England.

While Conte’s unconventional use of wing-backs may benefit the United defender, Frank Lampard’s shrewd signing of Chilwell in 2019 has already widened the gap between the two teams.

Chilwell, who made his 50th Chelsea appearance in the Blues’ 4-3 penalty shootout win over Southampton, is the Premier League’s best-performing left-back this season, according to WhoScored, with an average rating of 7.98.

The 24-year-old is ahead of teammates Marcos Alonso (7.47), Joao Cancelo (7.30) of Manchester City, and Andy Robertson of Liverpool (7.04).

Chelsea’s marauding left-back is head and shoulders ahead of Shaw (6.62), who Conte is expected to start ahead of his rumoured move to Old Trafford.

Despite leaving a portion of football Twitter bemused by his interest when the links first emerged, Lampard must be credited for signing the former Leicester City defender, despite having left a portion of football Twitter bemused by his interest.
