Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has led Chelsea to the top of the Premier League using three at the back and Arsenal legend Martin Keown believes the Italian has revolutionized English football with several managers now copying his tactics.
“Like everybody else, I’ve been impressed by Antonio Conte, and how much he seems to be impacting on English football with his tactics,” Keown told the Daily Mail.
“Everyone else seems to be wheeling out three at the back now, including England against Germany last week.
“He’s widened the vocabulary of English football, tactically. Conte played three at the back in the summer with Italy but has managed to vary it up slightly at Chelsea and still managed to get the right balance between attack and defence.
“That has been key to them dominating the Premier League like they have.”
