Our FA Cup clash against Peterborough would be the first time Kurt Zouma would be playing under Antonio Conte but Zouma believes he would slot into Conte’s 3-4-3 formation seamlessly thanks to the training both on and off the training pitch.
“We are working a lot in training, we do a lot of tactical work and we watch a lot of videos so it’s going really well,” Zouma told Chelsea’s official website.
“I have a good relationship with the manager and we talk a lot with each other. He talks a lot to all of the players and it’s easy to understand the tactics because he’s always right behind us, encouraging us, that makes it easy to learn.
“I played a few games for the Under-23s using that system which was good for me. When you watch videos and work on the tactical side in trainings, it’s much easier to take in.
“Watching the players from the bench allows you to learn a lot and I always talk to the boys about the games. They’ve been playing so well and I’ve been very focused and watching closely.”
