FM22 Chelsea 5-2-2-1 Gegenpress Tactic | Team Guide

FM22 Chelsea 5-2-2-1 Gegenpress Tactic | Team Guide

Football Manager 2022 Chelsa tactic and team guide. Club culture and board requirements, tactics, key players, youth prospects and potential transfers in FM22.


Here is a brief analysis of the Chelsea squad, their club structure, relationship any potential managers will have with the board, expectations and possible tactics any FM22 manager can use.

About the club


Firstly, Chelsea are a champion side with very high expectations and ambitions. They are the only English team to have won the English Premier League, UEFA Champions League and the Europa League in the last decade. With dominance come expectations, and the Chelsea board and owner expect big things from any manager. 

Chelsea are the 6th most valuable club in the world and 8th highest-earning club in the world. In the last 2 decades alone, Chelsea have won 5 league titles, 2 UCL titles, 2 Europa league titles, 1 super cup, and 11 other domestic titles making them one of the most successful teams from England.

Chelsea are the defending champions of the UEFA champion's league, and the board requirements, once you take over, will be;

Vision

⦁ Challenge for the PL title
⦁ Reach the Semi-final of the Champion's league.
⦁ Reach the final of the FA Cup.
⦁ Win the club world championship

Additionally, the board requires you to play attacking possession-based football, sign high reputation players, sign players under 23 for the club's future and develop youngsters using the club's academy.

The club are also blessed with excellent training facilities and a very solid youth setup that churns out league ready players every season. There is a lot of room for development with the stadium, too, as it has comparatively a small capacity for the club of the stature of Chelsea.

Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


Chelsea have had a big transfer window and have completed the signing of Romelu Lukaku and have acquired Saul Niguez on loan.

You could deploy quite a few tactical setups with Chelsea; however, the best-suited ones will be a gegenpress or a vertical tiki-taka. This should provide the fast-paced attacking football the board demands and could make use of all the fine attacking talent at your disposal. However, against quality attacks or tough away games, one could go with a fluid counterattack or wing play.

A 5-2-2-1 is the best-suited tactic for the current squad of players, however, it is a very versatile squad, and you can easily play a 4-3-3 or a 4-2-3-1 or even a 3-5-2 tactic, depending on your preference.

A rough example of what your line-up would look like in a 5-2-2-1 formation is as follows;

tactics


Edouard Mendy as a sweeper-keeper

Reece James & Ben Chilwell as the 2 wingbacks, they are naturally attacking players who will push much higher up the pitch.

Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva & Cesar Azpilicueta as the 3 centre backs. Rudiger & Azpilicueta to play as wide centre backs and Silva as a ball-playing defender.

Kante and Jorginho as the 2 central midfielders. The former plays as a box to box midfielder, and the latter playing as a deep playmaker in defence duty.

Mason Mount & Kai Havertz as the 2 attacking midfielders given a free role to roam freely. Havertz to be played as an attacking playmaker and Mount as an attacking midfielder.

Romelu Lukaku as a lone striker in a Pressing forward role.

As suggested, you can play multiple formations and tactics as this is a very versatile and powerful squad.

Key Players


Ngolo Kante


Ngolo Kante

Kante is probably one of the best central midfielders in the world and in the game too. He has a very high interception and tackle rating, making him the perfect player to win you balls with a press.

Romelu Lukaku


Romelu Lukaku

Lukaku is currently one of the best strikers in the world and is a beast up front. His hold up and physical play is second to none and, if used correctly, can be amongst the top goalscorers in the game.

Kai Havertz


Kai Havertz

Havertz was a wonderkid in several previous FM editions and recently scored a goal that won the Champion's league for Chelsea. With the right amount of gametime, Havertz can be a clutch player who can win several silverware with the club.

Antonio Rudiger


Antonio Rudiger

Rudiger has rediscovered his mojo under Tuchel and is currently among the best players at Chelsea. His performances at the back will help shape the season for the manager. Rudiger is currently in the last year of his contract, and managers will do well to extend his services further.

Young Prospects


There are a few exciting young prospects in the ranks who have the potential to be some of the best players in the league. A few examples are;

Jude Soonsup-Bell


Jude Soonsup-Bell

Soonsup-Bell is a young striker with high potential. He is the first player to score 4 goals for Chelsea in the FA youth cup since 1961. If nurtured correctly, Soonsup-Bell can be an amazing goalscorer for the club.

Armando Broja


Armando Broja

The 19-year-old Broja has already been linked with several high profile moves. The winger is extremely versatile and will develop into a superstar in the game.

Levi Colwill


Levi Colwill

The versatile centre back is regarded as a top prospect at Chelsea and can become a big player for club and country in the future.

Weaknesses


• This is overall a very young squad and could take a few seasons for the youngsters to hit their prime.
• There is a lot of competition in the squad, and it is not easy to maintain squad harmony and give game time to every player.

Potential Transfers (in)


Although Chelsea have a strong squad, even they could do with some bolstering, and these players will add value to the side,

• Jules Kounde
• Dusan Vlahovic
• Declan Rice

Potential Transfers (Out)


These players may be surplus to requirements at the club or may not be of the expected quality.

• Marcos Alonso
• Ruben Loftus Cheek

Summary


Chelsea is a solid squad for most managers, but it is also an exciting challenge to help their young stars reach their potential. If you're determined to overcome the volatility of the board, years of success could await you.
