Antonio Conte: This excellent Chelsea star is perfect for my new system

ANTONIO CONTE reckons his current formation is perfect for wing wizard Pedro.

The Spaniard has impressed for the Blues since Conte switched to a 3-4-3 formation.

Pedro, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa have formed a lethal attacking trio which has been too hot to handle for their rivals.

The Spaniard was in-and-out of the team last year after Jose Mourinho bought him from Barcelona for £20m.

And Conte think he’s found the right formula for the World Cup winner.

“Pedro? He has qualities of absolute excellence,” the Italian told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He’s perfect for the 3-4-3.”

Conte is also delighted with frontman Costa – who is the Premier League’s top scorer with 10 goals.

“Diego Costa…he is one of the best strikers in the world,” he added.

“For us it’s not just important that he’s a goalscorer, but that he works for the team.”

Pedro and Costa have another chance to shine when Chelsea host Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.


  1. I have no doubt on you…. But Pedro is loosing most of our chances .. at least in our last game at boro , He should have scored an hattrick ….. Tell him all Chelsea fans from Nigeria are angry with him…. Applaud you #Conte on your good work … Keep the blues flying …..God bless you all.
