3 things Conte learned from Chelsea’s dominant 4-0 victory over Brentford on Saturday
Beyond Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso, Chelsea don’t have much depth on the flanks. With Branislav Ivanovic no longer really involved, and Cesar Azpilicueta impressing in the middle – many thought that Conte might look to bring in another play as added depth.
However, the Italian has yet to do so – and opted to play Pedro as right wing-back against Brentford – and it worked a treat.
Much like it has with Victor Moses this season, Pedro fit into the role absolutely perfectly.
He is, obviously, more effective further forward – but he looked fantastic playing slightly deeper. It is definitely another option for Antonio Conte.
