Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard reckoned opposition teams are starting to figure out his side 3-4-3 formation.
Antonio Conte switched to the formation following Chelsea’s 4-0 in the hands of Arsenal and has helped the Blues to series of win in the Premier League, sitting at the top of the table presently with 34 points.
However, Hazard believes other teams have started to work out the system despite just conceding two goals in eight league matches.
‘Maybe for the opposition they now know where we are good [now],’ said Hazard.
‘They can be a little bit more prepared, they know what they have to do, and if we want to beat them we have to be ready for that. It’s the new challenge for us.’
Prior to Hazard’s comments, Conte revealed the reason why he for the formation change was due to the opposition team approach and number of goals conceded during that period.
“I was worried because we conceded a lot of goals in every game and conceded many chances and for this reason we changed it,” Conte said.
“Usually when you lose, it’s important to have a good idea and to change to improve and to explain why you had this defeat.
