Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino played a 3-4-3 system and named Eric Dier, Kevin Wimmer and Jan Vertonghen in the heart of defence for the North London Derby, deploying a back three system against the Gunners, and it worked for them in their 1-1 draw away from home, especially in the first 20 minutes of the game where Tottenham bossed Arsenal.

Tottenham manager has insisted that Chelsea do not own the formation, and that he didn’t deploy the formation because of how successful it has been for Chelsea.

He said: “I cannot say if it is a better way to play in the future but it is important to be flexible and it is a good step forward for the team to use different systems, different ways to try to play,” he said.

“It’s a good thing for the players, a good thing for the team.

“Chelsea, when they played here, started with a back four and after 3-0 in the 60th minute they changed to three. But last season we played against Watford, December 28, with three centre backs. Just because Chelsea won 5-0 yesterday, they didn’t discover the system.

“I think it’s a good system to use, dependant on the players. But we didn’t play like Chelsea, we played with two strikers [Kane and Heung-min Son] and Christian [Eriksen] in behind. But I think all the team can play in different systems.

“Nobody owns some system like we played today.”

We all know that teams are trying to play the system because of how successful it has been for Chelsea, but no one can play it like the Blues.

    Hypocrite manager when did you start playing this system? If not Conte do you know anything call 3-43- information that you are bragging, wait till we meet on 26th and we see who own the system why don’t you score Arsenal.
