Antonio Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League title last season with his 3-4-3 formation that worked wonders. However, it’s been a different story this season and Chelsea have already lost three league games this campaign.
Conte has spoken about working hard to restore Chelsea back to the top, but Arsenal legend Martin Keown believes Chelsea need more of belief than work.
Writing for the Daily Mail, Keown explained: “Chelsea are struggling. Teams are now looking at their system and finding ways to punish them.
“The game was up when they were beaten by Manchester City. Chelsea knew they were second best that evening.
“For the City players, their toughest test of the season came against Napoli, not the English champions.
“Chelsea have looked like conceding in almost every match this season. They may have showed fight to come back from 2-1 down to beat Watford but they could easily have lost that game.
“Antonio Conte has talked about hunger and hard work but really it is about belief. It looks like these Chelsea players no longer have belief.”
