1: Antonio Conte
Chelsea’s Antonio Conte will be livid after their recent loss to Crystal Palace at home and will look to rectify things immediately with a decisive win over City.
Conte can’t sleep at night for several days after a loss according to reports.
After the Arsenal loss, Conte couldn’t sleep and worked meticulously on his tactical plans to try solve Chelsea’s defensive woes. Well it worked, as he masterminded a complete tactical and formation change which resulted in Chelsea’s winning run of 13 games. He changed to a back three and put Moses and Alonso in as wing-backs.
"“I don’t sleep, sure. I don’t sleep. After this game, this defeat, it’s normal for me not to sleep. “Not only one night, but for two nights. When I don’t sleep, I reflect. And it’s important to reflect.”"
Well, now after the Crystal Palace loss, there’s very little doubt in my mind that Conte has done some thinking over another couple of sleepless nights and I’m sure he will have the right solution in place against City.
Conte is a tactical genius and he will beat Guardiola again.
