Conte: "For this team and squad this system is the right fit."

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte expressed his joy at how his Blues are buying into his 3-4-3 system as he believes their 3-0 win over the Premier League champions Leicester City has been the best display yet under his reign.

Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Victor Moses all registered a goal each to down the Foxes at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

However, Conte reckons his new system is key to their performance and he told Sky Sports: "It was a good game. From the start I asked them to play well with intensity and to try to do what we are doing in training.

"I am very happy because I had a good reply. This is the best game for us. I saw good commitment. When you work hard it is important to have a good performance.

"In the week we tried a lot to find a solution that gave us more compactness. For this team and squad this system is the right fit. The coach must understand and find the right suit. We are like a tailor."

Conte dedicated the triumph over the Foxes to Willian, who is on compassionate leave following the death of his mother.

The Italian added: "Willian is a fantastic guy and he deserves this on the part of the players.

"We are a team and we want to become a family. I want to dedicate this to Willian and his family as in this moment he is very sad. We are all sad."
