Former Gunners and England midfielder Paul Merson believes Chelsea’s dominance this season is down to the fact that Chelsea aren’t in Europe, and our wing-backs don’t go through enough work as they would, if they play three games in a week.
The Former Gunner in his column for Daily Star wrote: “Conte’s system only works because Chelsea are only playing once a week,”
“His wing-backs have to get through so much work and they couldn’t do it playing three times every week.
“Being out of Europe has really helped them. It means they’ve had time to work on the three at the back every week in training – and it shows.”
