Antonio Conte has hinted that he may use the same formation with three defenders at the back for the upcoming game against Leicester City.
Chelsea recently had to be without captain John Terry for almost a month and their form has not been good during this period. Terry has not played since the 2-2 draw with Swansea City back at the start of September. The poor run of form forced Conte into adopting a formation that he has favoured at all of his previous clubs – 3-4-3. The Italian has achieved a lot of success with this formation and it was surprising to see him go with a regular back for in the initial few months at Chelsea.

Even though he did not score from open play, Hazard was at his imperious best with his dazzling runs that made him a nightmare for the opposition. He created numerous openings for his teammates while also try his luck from long range.
After much talk about an impending exit for Chelsea legend John Terry in the summer, the club decided to extend his stay by offering him a one-year extension at the last moment.

He represented the blues in the 1960s as a defender and he went on to make more than 100 appearances for the club. Back then, Chelsea were not as successful as they are now.
