3 things Conte learned from Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over Bournemouth
Reliance on Costa and Kante
There is no doubting that Diego Costa and N’Golo Kante have been vital for Chelsea and Antonio Conte so far this season – but just how crucial they have been remained a pretty significant question mark.
However, the Blues proved that they can more than cope without the talented duo – and that bodes well as the season progresses.
Cesc Fabregas performed well in the absence of the Frenchman, whilst the utilisation of Pedro as a false 9 also appeared to work.
The game proved that Conte has more than just a Kante and Costa shaped string to his bow.
