Chelsea’s defence have been solid since Antonio Conte switched to a 3-4-3 formation, and the team is yet to concede a goal with this new system.
Chelsea number one goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes the new formation has made the team solid at the back.
“We have more defensive security. Against Hull and Leicester I didn’t have to make many saves but against United I did, we’ve been defending very well,” he said.
“At the Euros I played for Belgium against Italy and Wales, who both used this system, and they were very difficult games.” said Courtois.
