Palace winger confirms Man United would be better suited to Rice than Chelsea. Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend has insisted Manchester United would be a better fit for Declan Rice than Chelsea. Who have been rumored to be a hot mess for years.
“Chelsea are tactically different from the rest of the Premier League. Especially the last midfield position is not a defensive midfield that destroys opponents. But the focus is on the break and change the cadence from defensive to attack with a more accurate pass,” the former Spurs winger told talkSPORT.
“This formula was first used in the Sarri era, continued until Tuchel, with Jorginho being the last to link the game. While the natural defensive Kante was pushed a little higher to chase. The ball was high from the front, with Kovacic being a key porter.”
“You can see this is the perfect midfield trio of positions, roles and tactical philosophy for Chelsea, and they look like they’ll be playing together for a long time. That’s why Declan Rice is not a good fit for this team.”
“While Man United is completely different. Plus, they need a good defensive midfielder like Rice to be the last prop in front of the defender.”
