Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has had the pressure off his back since his switch to the 3-4-3 took Chelsea to the top of the Premier League table.
Ex-Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle is hoping the people at the top at Chelsea leave Conte to do his job without any pressure or interference.
“The people at the top have to leave him alone. It’s no good if he loses a couple of games and he’s put under pressure or there is interference,” Hoddle told Daily Mail.
“If they allow him to run the team and strengthen at the right times, as Sir Alex Ferguson did at United, they will have him for five very successful years.
“I saw Chelsea lose 3-0 at Arsenal in September and they were all over the place. Late on, he changed to three at the back and they looked like a team. They’re living proof that managers and systems do make a difference.”
