Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says that he is left impressed by manager Antonio Conte’s first few months at his former club.
After starting out in brilliant fashion with several late victories, the Italian manager suffered major setbacks later on – especially in the games against Arsenal and Liverpool. However, the club has since recovered and it was largely down to the brilliance of Conte. The Italian switched to a 3-4-3 formation, which he has used for the majority of his managerial career, after recent defeats. It was widely expected that Chelsea would begin the campaign with this formation.
