Much of the talk amongst the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern naturally centres around the notion of Antonio Conte delivering a league title to Stamford Bridge.
Having surrendered their league title so meekly last season to the most unlikely of usurpers, the Blues propping up the bar are begging the Italian keeps up his table-topping form throughout the course of the campaign.
Key to their recent surge has been the 47-year-old’s decision to move to a 3-4-3 formation, providing far more solidity.
In fact, the rearguard is in such good shape now that John Terry can’t even get back into the side.
While the 36-year-old is obviously in the autumn of his career, you get the feeling his presence heading into the business end of the season will be vital.
Well, Opta have pretty much confirmed that fact with this stat.
