It might have taken him a little while to find the right formula but Antonio Conte’s impact on Chelsea’s fortunes has been immediate. Initially struggling to stay in the top 4, the Blues currently sit atop the Premier League table after an impressive run of form and look like the real deal this season.
Conte’s switch to a 3-4-3 formation looks nothing short of a masterstroke. Since the formation was introduced in October Chelsea have won 6 games, scoring 17 goals and conceding none in the process. Defensively solid and clinical in attack, they are currently a force to be reckoned with.
6 clean sheets in as many games is not a stat to scoff at by any means. However, that isn’t the only indicator of just how solid this defence is.
And a recently revealed Squawka stat shows just how well Chelsea’s defense has operated since the switch in formation.
