Conte reveals 3-4-3 was his plan D

Antonio Conte has revealed that Chelsea's success with a 3-4-3 formation has come about by accident after actually being his plan D. Chelsea began the Premier League season well as they recorded three successive wins, but a draw with Swansea City and two defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal in September proved they still had a long way to go.

It was the fourth system he had tried with his team and Chelsea have picked up five league wins in succession since that humbling at the Emirates Stadium, becoming a more potent attacking force without sacrificing their defensive stability.

Conte told Chelsea's official website: "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."
