3 things Conte learned from Chelsea’s latest key 1-0 win against Sunderland

System Changes – finding us out


Whilst most of the takeaways from the game were undoubtedly positive, the clash did also reiterate one pretty significant fact for Antonio Conte.

When Conte had just introduced the 3-4-3 system, the Blues were running away with games. A 5-0 win against Everton and a 4-0 win against Man Utd were just some of the results.

However, in recent weeks, games have started to become a bit more tight – and that is no coincidence. Chelsea are beginning to get found out, and Conte must notice this and change a few things going forward.

It was always going to happen, but Conte must not expect Chelsea to walk through games anymore. He needs to switch up the tactics and the personnel somewhat over the next few weeks as he looks to keep teams guessing.
