London: Chelsea boss Antonio Conte revealed he rolled the dice with a formation tweak at Stoke because he was not content to leave with just a draw. Having started the weekend with a 10-point lead at the EPL summit, the Blues were on course for a share of the spoils against the Potters once Willian's free kick was cancelled out by Jonathan Walters' penalty before half-time.
Conte brought on Cesc Fabregas with 20 minutes to go altering his 3-4-3 system to a back four. The move paid dividends three minutes from time when Gary Cahill lashed in a winner in a 2-1 triumph. “It's not the first time,” Conte said. “When you want to try and take three points, you try to change. But, when you change, there is a greater possibility to score as well as concede a goal. ” Conte added.
