3 things Conte must do for Chelsea to beat Leicester City this weekend
Five at the Back
Antonio Conte switched to a five-man defence against Hull City and it worked a treat. The Blues looked dominant throughout, and in the end, they cruised to a relatively simple victory against the Tigers.
Given Chelsea’s misfortunes so far this season, it was essential that Conte changed something; and his decision to utilise three central defenders and two wing-backs was definitely a fruitful one.
However, the Italian must now be brave and continue with that formula against Leicester. Four man defences are, of course, tried and tested in the Premier League – but Conte must stick to his methods and continue with the formation that proved so successful last weekend.
Having two natural full backs was a refreshing change of pace – and one that could prove vital against Leicester.
