Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is delighted with how his players are taking to his 3-4-3 system and feels their 3-0 win over Leicester City was the best performance yet under his stewardship.
Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Victor Moses goals saw the hosts hand down Leicester’s fourth consecutive Premier League away defeat on Saturday.
Chelsea have now won two straight games since Conte’s tactical switch and he believes he is fulfilling his role as a “tailor” in finding the best system to suit his players.
The Stamford Bridge boss told Sky Sports: “It was a good game. From the start I asked them to play well with intensity and to try to do what we are doing in training.
“I am very happy because I had a good reply. This is the best game for us. I saw good commitment. When you work hard it is important to have a good performance.
“In the week we tried a lot to find a solution that gave us more compactness. For this team and squad this system is the right fit. The coach must understand and find the right suit. We are like a tailor.”
Conte dedicated the victory to Willian, who is on compassionate leave following the death of his mother this week.
The Italian added: “Willian is a fantastic guy and he deserves this on the part of the players.
“We are a team and we want to become a family. I want to dedicate this to Willian and his family as in this moment he is very sad. We are all sad.”
