3 things Conte learned from Chelsea’s dominant 3-0 demolition of Leicester City
Who Needs Costa?
Diego Costa was absent in the game, leaving many to question whether Chelsea would still be able to leave with the 3 points. The Spaniard has been vital for the Blues all season – and he has very often been the matchwinner.
Chelsea showed no signs of needing him against the Premier League champions, though, with defender Marcos Alonso proving deadly in front of goal – showing the accuracy that Costa has been famed for this season.
Utilising Hazard in place of Costa worked well, and Conte will know that he can rely on the Belgian going forward – regardless of what happens to Diego Costa.
