Chelsea's Squad Review - Who Stays and Who Goes in Attack
When Antonio Conte came to Chelsea in 2016, he brought with him a playing style that had not been used in the Premier League for quite some time. The three-in-the-back formation helped him bring success to Juventus and served Chelsea Football Club well in his first term.
One of the key components of the system is how wing-backs provide additional support to the forwards, thereby overwhelming opposition defences. An 85-goal haul in his first season testified to the fact. However, in 2017/18 season, that number dropped to 62 goals.
In this part of Chelsea’s Squad Review, we take a look at the performance of their forwards. There are some rumours surrounding transfers from the forward line, so we’ll take a look at them as well.
