Food for thought indeed!
Antonio Conte is rightfully lauded as a shrewd tactician. The entirety of the football community is well accustomed to the significance of Conte’s decision to institute the 3-4-3 formation last season. It became indispensable in our successful pursuit of the Premier League title.
A similar tactical alteration has been conducted this season. Antonio Conte has favoured the 3-5-2 formation this season as a method to maximise the potential of his squad. Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas are obvious beneficiaries from the new system, and Danny Drinkwater and Tiemoue Bakayoko have been fighting for the third remaining spot in Conte’s midfield.
The Frenchman has began to produce some questionable performances of late, despite the promise and the potential that he exhibited earlier in the campaign such as his masterful performance against United. On the contrary, Danny Drinkwater has began to impress, and he was very lively during our 3-1 triumph against Newcastle United.
