Antonio Conte: This is what I think about today’s win, new system and Willian’s absence
The win against Leicester City was not just about 3 points, it was a lot more than that. The defence, that has been criticized for being leaky over the weeks, not only helped keep Courtois largely untroubled, but did not even let Leicester take a shot on target. All this while John Terry was on the bench.
Apart from the defense, another thing worthy of noting is the role of the two wing backs, Alonso and Moses, who were absolutely fantastic on the two flanks, with the latter even scoring off a wonderful one-two with Chalobah. They were crucial in keeping Amartey and Drinkwater quiet.
The three man defence looks very compact, and wing backs provide the midfielders much more freedom.
