Everton manager Ronald Koeman says he’s never seen a side play 3-4-3 as well as this Chelsea team after today’s Premier League match at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues ran out 5-0 winners against Koeman’s men, who had no answer to the home side’s slick and fast football that moved them top of the table.
Eden Hazard was in particularly sparkling form for Chelsea, and is a player reborn this season after Conte’s tactical change, which has seen them win five games in a row since it was introduced by the Italian.
Speaking after the game, Koeman admitted he was in awe of the way Conte’s Chelsea team pulled this system off.
‘Chelsea showed us today very high level of football in every aspect of football,’ the Dutchman said.
‘How they work, how they run, how they press – we can learn from them. It’s a big lesson what happened today.
‘I never saw a team playing so well this system. This system is very difficult to play against, the movement of the players, Hazard.’
