Should I try a 3-5-2 with Chelsea? In my save, 2013/14 season, Celtic advanced past UCL group stages, defeated PSG 5-1 at home and drew 0-0 away at Round of 16. Then they drew 1-1 away to Benfica and won 1-0 away. Now they drew 0-0 to Bayern at home and 1-1 away, advancing on away goals. Meanwhile, my Chelsea lost to this team 2-4 on aggregate (Bayern). In the final, they completely shut out Real Madrid and scored a 90th minute header from a corner (Like Wigan did against City) and won 1-0.

They play a 3-5-2, 3 CBs, 2 DMs (which help cover the gaps on the flanks), 1 CM, 1 LM, 1 RM and 2 ST. In my save, I can't really try this out as Man City and Man Utd win loads of league games and I can't afford to experiment it. Anyone else has tried this?

P.S. Since this is 2013/14, squad is same as real life. :) Though Wanyama at DM is a beast.
