New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has clinched the manager of the month award for the second time this season with Diego Costa earning the player of the month title for November.
The Italian manager has proved his mettle after arriving at Stamford Bridge and has guide the Chelsea side to the top of the table after a perfect November – outplaying Everton, Middlesbrough and Tottenham.
In-form Diego Costa has replaced Eden Hazard to land the best player of the month award this time around – after leading the Blues attack with two goals and two assists to his name for the month of November.
It was all about Chelsea in the month of November – with Pedro won the best goal of the month award for his brilliant strike against Tottenham.
Conte’s Chelsea are now desperate to hold on to the top spot and are all geared up to face West Brom this weekend.
Conte has now brought things under control with his 3-4-3 system at Chelsea. Chelsea have now won all their last eight matches after a series of brilliant performances and have retained the top spot in the Premier League table after 14 games.
The Chelsea defence have proved their mettle and earned clean sheets in all their last six wins and now it seems that the newly implemented 3-4-3 system has turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta have cleary adapted to the new 3-4-3 system and now are Conte’s favourites for the back-three spots.
The three-man attack under Conte has displayed incredible form this season – which was not the case last year under former boss Mourinho. Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and Pedro, who were not at their best form last season has now found life exciting under the Italian. The attacking trio has stepped up their game and has provided the much needed impetus to challenge for the title this season.
New signing Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses, who went down the pecking order during Mourinho’s reign and later loaned out to Southampton – has given the Blues the much needed pace, precision and control down the wings. The icing on the cake has been the resurgence of Matic and last season’s Leicester City hero Kante. And all this has been achieved after the arrival of the prolific Italian manager Conte.
And as a fan you cannot ask for a better start.
