Two changes… The slightly changed Chelsea team to tackle Everton
Chelsea’s form has hit a real purple patch of late. After back-to-back losses against Liverpool and Arsenal, which followed a draw at Swansea, Blues boss Antonio Conte ventured away from the 4-1-4-1 formation that gave him three wins on the spin in his opening trio of matches in favour of a three-man system, and the results have fully justified his call.
Indeed, the London club won all four of their Premier League matches in October, keeping a quartet of shutouts in the process. As far as tactical switches go, it’s been a good one, we think you’ll agree.
During the run, Conte has largely stuck with the same XI, but with Everton a slightly different test to those the capital-based club have faced of late, we at FootballFanCast wouldn’t be shocked to see a couple of changes. They say never tinker with a winning formula, but some switches may just inject more energy and verve into Chelsea’s play and also counteract the threats Everton possess.
