Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed why his 3-4-3 formation has ensured Chelsea’s recent excellent form.
Defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal saw Conte revert to his favorite three-man defence formation and has worked so well for the Blues in recent weeks.
The Italian told the club website: ‘The central defenders on the right and the left must be very fast and aggressive,’

‘The players that play in the middle of the three defenders must be more tactical, must reflect more and find the right position, and also call the line up and down,’ Conte added.
‘In these last three games we did very well. It’s normal when you play with the same players. They take confidence in the role to play together.
‘It’s important also for example in this game, the cup, to find a new solution. If you have during the season an injury, then it’s important to have a good solution ready.’
Chelsea is expected to continue with a three-man defence against West Ham on Wednesday night.
