Thanks for posting the image of the formation.
Please excuse my ignorance, but what is Chelsea's Backline Setting, and Offside Trap Setting?

S. Kalou is out and Malouda is in. Maybe Alex for R. Carvalho.

This is how I set up Chelsea in my game, it looks pretty similar to the real Ancelotti's system for Chelsea.

Line-up are :

- Seattle Sounder :

Cech (GK)
Bosingwa (RB)
Terry (RCB)
Alex(LCB)
Ashley Cole (LB)
Deco (DMF)
Ballack (RCMF)
Malouda (LCMF)
Lampard (AMF)
Anelka (RCF)
Sturridge (LCF)

- Inter Milan :

Cech (GK)
Bosingwa (RB)
Terry (RCB)
R.Carvalho(LCB)
Ashley Cole (LB)
Mikel (DMF)
Essien (RCMF)
Malouda (LCMF)
Lampard (AMF)
Anelka (RCF)
Drogba (LCF)

For AC Milan match today, from what I have heard Shevchenko and Zhirkov will play. So Zhirkov will slot in the LCMF position while Shevchenko will take the RCF position, I think.

Yes he is. He just said he is very happy after talking with Ancelotti. I guess Chelsea could use him sometime when they need more creativity in attack ;)

Any news on the formations they are using, that diamond shape thing raises my interest.
and one interesting link on the diamond subject:

I know it's not the diamond formation they've been using in the prem but this was how they played against porto the other night I felt it could maybe go into the first post as a secondary formation.

CHELSEA
Image

GK: Čech
RCB: Carvalho
LCB: Terry (c)
RB: Ivanović
LB: Cole
DM: Essien
RCM: Ballack
LCM: Lampard
LM: Malouda
SS: Kalou
CF: Anelka

Left Corner: Lampard
Right Corner: Malouda/Lampard
Long Free Kick: Lampard
Short Free Kick: Lampard/Ballack
Penalties: Lampard

Notes: A 4-5-1 which at times, depending on how the players shifted, was able to become a diamond 4-4-2 or even a bit of a 4-3-2-1 as Milan played under Ancelotti :roll: Malouda and Kalou were both looking to move centrally as much as staying or pushing out wide. Ballack would occasionally make up for this by pushing out wider, but generally he and Lampard looked to push up and into the box. Lampard could almost be an AM in this formation, but his foward arrow should see him push foward enough. Also to make up for the supposed wingers looking to move into central postions, Anelka looked to push wide almost constantly when Chelsea brang the ball foward, before settling in a central position when the ball got near to the edge of the opposing penalty.

As mentioned above, when Drogba is available they'll probably play a 4-4-2 diamond but this could potentially be a more defensive alternative for the Champions League and when playing top sides of the Premier League.

Isn't Ballack a DMF? instead of Essien?
Essien always come up, while Ballack's forward run is something optional.

Ballack pretty much played as a DM in the second half once Chelsea scored but Essien still played deeper then him the whole match.

Essien only ever ventured near to the edge of the area, while Ballack was often looking to get into the box.

Ancelotti now is playing with a 4-4-2 diamond, it sometimes switches in the game and turns to a 4-3-3.

------------Cech--------------

-Bosingwa-Carvalho-Terry-Cole-

------------Essien------------
-----Ballack-------Lampard---
-------------Deco----------

---------Anleka--Drogba-------


I think there will be changes in the defence soon, Maybe ALEX will take CARVALHO place and IVANOVIC will take BOSINGWA place, well depending on their performances & in the midfield we will see a lot of changes, MIKEL will come on, JOE COLE will come on, so there are many possiblities.

Even in the diamond Essien doesn't play as a DMF, he plays as a CMF with two Wingers and an AMF.

Concerning tactical sliders, found this on PESfan forums:

Let's talk tactics here. For each and every team, Konami have set tactical sliders in different ways. That's why we have different oppositions playing in different styles. Are these opponents playing the right style? I mean, does Chelsea play like Chelsea? Are the tactical slider set ups correct? That's the whole topic of this thread.

For instance, Chelsea don't attack you with speed (not referring to counterattacks). They take their time, build up their play, get the players in the desired spots and then create an attack. And, they don't congest the pitch. Their attacks are not compact. They use the width of the pitch. While they are in possession, they don't congest the ball carrier. They are a very organised team and particular about roles. They deliver a lot of crosses. In defence, they do play high up. When they are not in possession, they put a lot of pressure on the opposition. They are very compact in defence cutting down the options for the passing lanes.

As many have noted, the tactical sliders, though have markers from 0 to 100, there seems to be only three possibilities (0-33, 34-66, 67-99) in each slider. I'm still going ahead with the belief that there is a difference between, say 10 and 20, instead of just bucketing them under the 'below 33' category.

I'd put the Chelsea sliders this way:

Player Support - 40: When a Chelsea player has the ball, you don't see the rest of the players running ahead of him. That's because Chelsea's build up is slow (not referring to counterattacks). If you have players who can hold up the ball, even with a 50 slider, you'll have players for good attacking moves.

Support Range - 20: This means players would generally be spread wide across the pitch. This doesn't quite mean that the would attack from the flanks. It's just that the players would be distributed across the width of the pitch. Anyway, Chelsea are not a close-range short passing
team.

Position Switch - 0: When this is set to a low number, even if a player goes out of his position in an attack, he'd come back to his position as soon as possible, without waiting for the ball to go out of play. He will not continue being out of position too long. I think this value would just suit Chelsea.

Attacking Style - 10: With the full backs set up as either side backs or wing backs, Chelsea do attack from the wings primarily. You'd expect that good amount of their attacks would come from the sides than through the centre.

Pressing - 99: Chelsea presses their opponents very heavily. They just don't allow you anytime on the ball. They come after you at any distance and try to dispossess you early enough.

Defensive line - 80: Chelsea's defence plays quite up the pitch. With the full backs mostly in the attacking half of the pitch, the centre backs also play up. They have players like Essien and Ballack who are very good at preventing attacks quite early with their timely tackles and fouls.

Compactness - 30: Chelsea maintain the formation and the organisation very well. As a team they do not get closer to the opponent ball carrier because they don't have to. The players closer to the opponent will do pressurising while the rest of the team can maintain the shape.

Defensive Strategy - 0: Line defence. I think this is what Chelsea does.
