Conte: Chelsea Looking For Balance With New Tactics

share on:

Antonio Conte has revealed that Chelsea are trying new tactics to find solidity and balance in the team.

The Chelsea manager watched on as his men shredded West Brom for a 4-0 win, with Hazard scoring a brace, Morata getting one and Alonso as well.

Conte believes Hazard is back to his best form, while his link-up play with Cesc Fabregas and Morata is paying dividends.

“I think to see Eden in this fitness is very important for me. Eden and Morata showed a great link, but also with the ball we have another player with great creativity in Cesc,” Conte said at the Hawthorns.

“This season I think we’re changing something to find a new balance, a new solidity, to have a good balance when we are attacking and when we are defending. I hope to continue to improve. This is the second game we finished with a clean sheet and we have to continue in this way.

“I must be honest: These players and this team has always shown great desire, great will to fight in every game. Against Roma, together we didn’t show this. Me first. I always put myself before the players, to take responsibility.
“In this season we faced a lot of problems from the start. Now we’re trying to solve these problems, to recover the players, to find the right form for players like Hazard and also Morata — this is the first season that he’s playing with regularity.

“Kante is recovering good form and you know very well the importance of these players for us. Also [Danny] Drinkwater, now he’s starting to play. We had a lot of problems and also we’re trying to change something in the tactical aspect, to find different solutions. When you concede so many goals it means you have to find a new balance and solidity.”
