I think what i told my wife was based on my believe that
any team who is able to keep moses and alonso at bay will be close to wining or holding chelsea.

I knew this in november 2016, when the full backs became the new heroes of contes 3:4:3.

I am a liverpool fan.

Proud of that.

as to disagreeing with my belief, youve got all right to disagree. however, we both cannot deny the result.

have a great day.

thanks. have good day too.

For all I care fabregas was the perfect choice for that game. There are certain matches you have to do the opposite of your opponent if you want to daze them and have any chance of winning that's why arsenal was never able to beat Barca in as many games during the days of tiki taka. Why ? Because arsenal kept playing their style and ask yourself why a team like Chelsea was able to handle Barcelona and tame them? Because we played the opposite of what they played. Fabregas might not have the speed or those things you are saying but he has those pinpoint passes and technique to locate any player from any part of the pitch and create the goals. Its coaches like you that will use two Mikel obi's because you want to face a Gatusso. There's always a way you can catch these people unawares.

Besides, conte has a bad reputation of tiring players, favoritism, using them till death until they start to wear off and get jaded. He did this in juventus where he used the same set of first eleven for twenty something games. He did such with the Italian national team also. I repeat and I'll say it again, I hate it when our first eleven is predictable even before the game starts. Just take a look at zouma, conte will never use that boy until he decides to move on with his career and better and funny enough, he's a better and solid option to Gary Cahill but favoritism will never let him play.

sister, i do not think any coach will pick a team/player based on favoritism, they want to win and they pick players according to their idea of football, they pick players who will get the job done(win them games.)
you mention that conte has a reputation of tiring players and not changing his line up in his juve days, it amazes me that you remember how tired they were but not all the successes they achieved. let me remind you. that team won 33 of 38 games in a season, went a season unbeaten, hardly conceded goals and scored for fun.
i am sure you have heard the saying that you do not change a winning team. well that's how football works, still know lester city starting 11 of last season, the chelsea team under mourinho i remember. Once the coaches find a balance and an 11 that gets the job done, they hardly change.

Just as the analysis on supersport began before the match, I told my wife that tottenham will defeat chelsea or at worst play a draw.
I told her the formation shown on the screen will peg Moses and Alonso back at their own half, making it hard for chelsea to play its own football (conte's working formation).
Chelsea only looked more like it anytime moses is able to push rose back.
While alonso was kept at bay throughout his stay pn the pitch by Walker.

This game is a clue to other teams on how to counter chelsea's new found tactics.

hmmm, this same chelsea have good fixtures from January 31st till february end.

I welcome chelsea to the anfield on 31/01/2017.

i don't agree that you could categorically tell that tott will win or at least draw from just seeing the formation. reason is tott played same formation the last time and i believe walker and rose played in that game. this game was close and could have turned out differently, especially if hazard scored that headed chance. and maybe the record of a thing got to chelsea a little bit.
that said, i totally agree that Rose and Walker gave real problems to chelsea and what you said happened alot during the game. those two were immense. As regards that being the way to play against chelsea, maybe, maybe not. tott did it well, everton not so much. i know man u, arse and liver won't change sys to play chelsea, others don't have as good wingbacks as walker & Rose to cause trouble, i think. guess you are a liver fan, liver play some scary attkin football shocked shocked shocked[color=#990000][/color].

It's so easy to analyse a match with the help of hindsight

At the bolded you'll loose a lot of matches as a coach If you don't study & understand your opponents well.

Spurs came with 2 DM's in dier n wanyama + a deep lying playmaker in dembele

NOTE: wany n demb are both very good box-to-box players

Fabregas has limited skill, strength, speed, tackling abilities to match these guys... so you would field him in an away match to spray pass? undecided

You now want to use dimunitive kante as a shield? Even at Leicester he had drinkwater to partner up with.

If Conte had gone with your thoughts, you'd still be mourning a loss & analysing his team selection.

Truth is on the day, spurs players wanted it more #simple

After all these were same boys (who gave ya'll a 2-1 win over spurs in november).

One of the most difficult decisions facing managers is 'changing' a winning team, which Is one of the criticisms of benitez coaching philosophy

Tottenham are a top team and he had to put forward his first team...they lost #simple

Don't over-analyse the situation
Correct guy, I beg tell am! Pple just come here and say which formation and players to use, meanwhile they have never coached a football game once in their life. 13 of 14 no be beans. Conte knows what he doing. Give credit.

Today, chelsea did not get to their usual attacking gears.
The height of moses and azpi was exploited. And it does not help if you a sniper in Erickson crossing the ball. Good win Tottenham.

European Football (EPL, UEFA, La Liga) / Re: West Ham Vs Chelsea : EFL Cup (2 - 1) On 26th October 2016 by Eru009(m): 3:58pm On Oct 28, 2016

Why did chelsea make seven changes or did he think that west ham is a small club.i am really dissapointed angry
Guy, na the efl cup, it is what teams do to give fringe players playing time. Maybe conte no make subs early enough though. Even at that they still had loads of chances and could have won had they been more clinical. You would have seen that if you watched the game.
And next time don't claim one formation no work for epl without having seen it tried severally and without regards for facts. Na waitin vex me for ur comment be dat.

Bergovic no fit catch anything; even sleep sef him no fit catch. Shey I don talk am; 3-4-3 is not really for the EPL. meet a team on a good day and they'll clear your doubt like West Ham is doing now.
bro, you sure say you watch d match? First off, begovic was fantastic. you say 3-4-3 is not for epl, I beg na which formation westham play today? how effective a formation will be depends on how well you implement it and the players wey you get. how come draw conclusion on just one game and ignored the last three? you also ignored the fact that Chelsea made SEVEN changes to the side dat started the united game and westham fielded their best eleven. you go agree with me say a team missing 7 starters wont be the same. not making excuses, westham better today, but bros try not jump into conclusion hastly.
