Conte reveals 3-4-3 was his ‘Plan D’

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has revealed that he stumbled on the 3-4-3 by accident, as it was his ‘Plan D’.

The Italian tactician switched to the formation, after the Blues were hammered 3-0 by Arsenal in September.
Ever since, Chelsea have embarked on a winning run, winning five straight league victories without conceding
a single goal.

“We started the season with another system because the idea in my mind was that I wanted to play with the 4-2-4, and then we switched with 4-3-3 and we played also in the same way like last year, 4-2-3-1,” Conte told Chelsea’s official website.

“But I noticed in some circumstances we didn’t have the right balance because when you concede more goals than your opponent and even more chances to score a goal, it is never a good thing.

“For this reason, we switched to the new system of 3-4-3 and I think this is a good fit for our squad because also we have the strikers adapted for this system.

“I thought it would improve us offensively as well as defensively and we didn’t lose our offensive situation.
“In this way we have increased it because we scored many goals and created a lot of chances to score the goals and also if you maintain the clean sheet, I think this is the right way.”
