For every Chelsea fan, Antonio Conte’s switch to 3-4-3 has been divine. Since the switch to the new system, it’s been 3 victories and no goal conceded, for a team that has been letting in goals easily for over a year now.
Chelsea have been solid at the back, and Antonio Conte has explained why the new system has been so successful.
“The central defenders on the right and the left must be very fast and aggressive,” said the Italian.
“The players that play in the middle of the three defenders must be more tactical, must reflect more and find the right position, and also call the line up and down.
“In these last three games we did very well. It’s normal when you play with the same players. They take confidence in the role to play together.
“It’s important also for example in this game, the cup, to find a new solution. If you have during the season an injury, then it’s important to have a good solution ready.” He said.
