Redknapp ditches 3-5-2 formation for key clash
Harry Redknapp has made three changes to the team that was thrashed 4-0 at White Hart Lane last week, ditching the 3-5-2 formation and opting for 4-3-3.
Loic Remy has also been left out of the squad after Chelsea triggered his release clause as they look for a replacement for Fernando Torres.
