Jose Mourinho’s men were embarrassed at Stamford Bridge yesterday as the Blues ran out 4-0 victors.
Goals from Pedro, Gary Cahill, N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard ruined the Special One’s return to his old stomping ground.
“The lack of European football has helped – Conte will have had plenty of time to work on the new system in training”
And former Liverpool star Redknapp was full of praise for Conte after the game, revealing the reasons behind the Blues’ success.
“Who would have believed this time last year that Victor Moses would be playing as a wing back for Chelsea?” Redknapp wrote in his Daily Mail column.
“It’s been an inspired decision by Antonio Conte and is just one of many changes he’s made.
“He’s switched the system to three at the back, got Eden Hazard playing in his preferred No.10 position — and all without established figures like Branislav Ivanovic and John Terry.
“The lack of European football has helped — Conte will have had plenty of time to work on the new system in training. After a tricky spell, Conte has turned things around and Sunday’s 4-0 win over Manchester United was his team’s best result of the season.”
