Mourinho promises a new, attacking Chelsea

In an exclusive interview with ESPNSoccernet Press Pass Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed he will adopt a more attacking approach this season to accommodate his new stars.

Moving to dismiss reports that new signing Michael Ballack and England international Frank Lampard would be battling for a single place in midfield, the Chelsea boss revealed they will form a partnership as part of his 'attacking square'.

Mourinho said: 'Chelsea will be a much more offensive team this season than last season, because last season we always played with a defensive midfield player, to give Ballack - to give Lampard more freedom to play in attack.

'And this season my idea is to play with both, so both are attacking midfield players, players who like to arrive into the last 60 meters, they like to score goals, they have great finishing qualities, and I think together they can be a massive quality.'

Moving away from the highly successful 4-5-1 formation, with which Chelsea have won back to back Premiership titles, Mourinho also revealed that he will play with two strikers to allow new £30million signing Andriy Shevchenko to partner Didier Drogba.

'I'm also thinking about playing two strikers at the same time,' the Chelsea boss said. 'For example, this game I will play Drogba and Shevchenko with Ballack and Lampard behind them, so you can imagine it is a very attacking square.

'After that we have players with a lot of quality, but these players will be the nucleus of an attacking team.'

Mourinho's comments hint at a change to a 4-4-2 formation, dispensing with his defensive midfielder, for the new campaign - casting doubts over the future of France international Claude Makalele, who is hailed as the best in the world in the midfield holding role.

With unsettled defender William Gallas already sending ripples through the Chelsea 'family' Mourinho will be keen to avoid any further discontent.
