3 things Conte learned from Chelsea’s demolition of Leicester

Formation Concerns


Chelsea have long opted for a standardised back four, and Antonio Conte began in that vein during his early days at Stamford Bridge. However, after several weeks of disappointing results – Conte has now changed to utilising 2 wingbacks and 3 central defenders; and it has worked a treat.

Chelsea’s performance against Leicester was the best of the season so far, and his system has been proven to work well in the Premier League.

Man Utd will, of course, be a tough opponent; but if Conte was concerned about how well his formation would work against a top side; he got his answer against Leicester.

Keep at it, Antonio.
