3 things Conte learned from Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Southampton

Midfield Security


Much of the attention post-game has, expectedly, been placed upon the shoulders of Diego Costa and Eden Hazard – but the Chelsea midfielders must be given credit for their performance throughout the game.

N’Golo Kante has finally hit his stride – and Nemanja Matic looks like a new player in the middle-of-the-park.

Matic, in particular, deserves credit – as he looked down and out over the summer, but he has really taken the chance that Antonio Conte has given him.

Much of the success of this 3-4-3 formation is down to this impressive midfield duo.
