Incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is famed for using a 3-5-2 formation.
The Italian used it to devastating effect when helping Juventus secure 3 back-to-back Serie A titles, and has helped current side Italy reach the knock-out rounds of the European Championships deploying the same formation.
While it may have been effective in Italy and Europe thus far, it is not a tactic customarily used in the Premier League.
During his tenure at Bari, Conte used the 4-2-4 to great effect and helped his side finish runaway winners of Serie B back in 2009. The Italian also used the formation successfully in the following years whilst manager of Siena.
It would certainly be a huge shake-up for Chelsea and moreover the Premier League to see such an attacking outfit, but could offer the Blue’s the unpredictability and cutting edge they lacked in the final third so much last campaign.
So, could Chelsea line up like this next season at Stamford Bridge? Our fans at the Tavern sure do hope so. Check out this mouth watering attack…..
