Ian Wright offers Antonio Conte tactical advice ahead of Chelsea v Man City
The Arsenal legend urges Antonio Conte not to alter his tactics for Chelsea's home clash against Manchester City on Saturday evening
Ian Wright has urged Antonio Conte not to alter his tactical approach when Chelsea line up against Manchester City on Saturday evening.
The defending Premier League champions will host the current leaders in what promises to be one of the best games of the 2017-18 season so far.
Chelsea will have been buoyed by a 2-1 win against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night when Michy Batshuayi scored a late winner in the Spanish capital.
The Blues are unbeaten in their last five games in the Premier League to get their season back on track following a 3-2 loss to Burnley in their opening fixture of the campaign.
Manchester City are the Premier League’s form team after scoring 16 goals and keeping three clean sheets in victories over Liverpool, Watford and Crystal Palace.
The Citizens are sitting at the top of the table ahead of Manchester United on goal difference to underline their title credentials.
Former Arsenal striker Wright doesn’t believe Conte should alter his approach for Chelsea’s home clash against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
“I think Chelsea will play their normal game and go for it and try to beat them,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live. “I would do that if I was Conte.”
Chelsea won the Premier League title with two games to spare last season after finishing seven points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur.
