Chelsea fans tell Antonio Conte which formation he should use against Man City

Chelsea face runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, and Blues fans have told manager Antonio Conte which formation he should use instead of 3-5-1-1 against Pep Guardiola’s side.

The Italian boss has often chosen to go with the 3-5-1-1 system, a decision which was criticised in an article by The Guardian on Saturday, away against the big teams this season, although he used a 3-4-2-1 in the 2-1 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend.

With that failing in another disappointing performance for the west London outfit, Conte could be tempted to revert to a formation that uses three central midfielders, with Danny Drinkwater, N’Golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas all available, as he looks to avoid a second loss in a week in Manchester.

Football365 believe that Conte could do exactly that against a formidable City side, but Chelsea supporters are keen for him to be more attacking and go with a 3-4-3 formation instead.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
