Chelsea boss Antonio Conte lined Chelsea up in a 3-5-2 formation in today’s Premier League clash against Leicester City.

The team looked below par and off the pace as the Foxes dominated Chelsea almost the entire game.

Chelsea looked awful in the 3-5-2 formation, but Conte believes the system is okay and gives the team balance.

He said after the game: “Don’t forget last season there were different players. We changed many players and I have to find the right balance.

“Against Norwich we played 3-4-3 with Willian, Pedro and Batshuayi (in attack) and Drinkwater and Bakayoko (in midfield) but we didn’t score.

“I have to find the right balance. We played 3-4-3 against Norwich and didn’t score.

“This is not a problem for the system. In both systems we have conceded less than last season. We have to improve if we want to score and win. “
