Here’s a lineup with Christensen and Kessie helping the team start their attack next season.
In this system, Araujo can play short passes with Christensen or Dest. However, Christensen’s responsibility will be to play more adventurous passes looking for Pedri – or a longer pass seeking out Aubameyang or Ferran Torres. That would help the Blaugrana launch many attacks this season.
Kessie can play as a box-to-box midfielder – his best role would be in central midfield where he can force his way into the final third and make things happen for the team.
As indicated with the arrows in the image, Kessie’s main job will be to win the ball further up the pitch and find Pedri who can then create something with a defence-splitting pass to either Ferran, Fati or Aubameyang.
