Conte’s team hasn’t looked the same since they lost their perfect start against Swansea a couple of months ago, and even with a couple of emphatic wins against Hull City and the defending champions Leicester City, there’s still a lot of room for improvement for the Blues if they want to be back in the European competition next year.

The blue side is currently sitting at the fifth position in this year’s Premier League’s table, trailing only Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, with a difference of just three points between the leaders and them.

Even if the results have been there for Conte’s side, the performance of his team is miles away from expected at the start of the season, and they’ve been bailed out by some late strikes by the controversial striker Diego Costa for most of the season.

Having said that, we’ll take a look at three main adjustments the Italian boss will need to do in order to keep the three points at home when they host Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United team this weekend.

1: Mess with Zlatan’s head:

The always controversial and talented Zlatan Ibrahimovic is known for four main reasons: being one of the most narcissistic players in the history of the sport, his incredible athleticism even at his age (35 years old), his goal scoring ability and his lack of patience and tolerance with opponent defenders.

Zlatan gets easily frustrated and if anyone gets physical with him, he’ll go nuts and totally lose his focus, as we’ve seen through most of his career, especially during his time at Barcelona, and even lastMondayy when he faced Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip during his team’s draw at Anfield. If you make him complain instead of playing, you have a decent chance against his team.
