Antonio Conte has a settled team, and rarely makes an alteration to his starting lineup. This has made Chelsea play with so much understanding, and Burnley manager Sean Dyche has been impressed with Chelsea’s consistency.
Dyche said: “Am I right in thinking they have mainly used the same 13 players this season?
“Maybe that adds to the galvanising feeling. The Italian way is very structured, very organised. They have shown signs of having a good team belief and camaraderie.
“Their reality and expectation is to win a lot of games, if not to win all the time – to be right up there. You need an underlying culture, a team unity for that.”
