Chelsea have become the Premier League’s in-form team after Antonio Conte switched to a 3-4-3 formation and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher admits Chelsea plays the 3-4-3 as well as any team he has seen play the formation.
“Chelsea are playing this formation as well as anyone I’ve ever seen do it,” Carragher said as quoted by Daily Star. “It was more than professional – especially in the first half.
“They were unfortunate not to go into half-time two or three up. Diego Costa is looking like he was when he first arrived. He’s as good as any striker out there at this moment.
“The biggest thing for them was the results of the other teams. Sometimes, playing on a Sunday after your top-four rivals, can put pressure on you if they win.
“But it was only City who won and Chelsea got the result they needed.”
