Antonio Conte is reportedly being considered for a surprising return to Chelsea, should Mauricio Pochettino face dismissal at the season’s end. Pochettino’s Chelsea currently sits in ninth place in the Premier League, and he has been unable to guide the team to success in either the FA Cup or the EFL Cup.

Consequently, Pochettino finds himself under immense pressure at Stamford Bridge, with speculation suggesting he could be relieved of his duties next month. While several names such as Roberto De Zerbi, Hansi Flick, and Ruben Amorim have been associated with the managerial position, the latest contender in the mix is former Chelsea boss Conte.

Reports from Italy indicate that the 54-year-old, who led Chelsea to the Premier League title in the 2016-17 season, is intrigued by the possibility of returning to the club. Despite a less than stellar tenure at Tottenham Hotspur in recent times, Conte’s potential comeback would undoubtedly capture attention.

During Conte’s previous tenure at Stamford Bridge, he notably deployed a five-defender formation with great success. At that time, Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso played crucial roles as wing-backs, while among the current squad, Malo Gusto and Ben Chilwell are seen as the best fits for those positions.

Reece James is earmarked for the wide centre-back role that was previously occupied by Cesar Azpilicueta, with Wesley Fofana and Levi Colwill filling the other defensive slots, provided they maintain their fitness levels.

In midfield, Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo are likened to Conte’s former midfield duo, Cesc Fabregas and N’Golo Kante, showcasing similarities in their playing styles. Meanwhile, Cole Palmer is identified as the player most resembling Eden Hazard, who played a pivotal role for Chelsea during Conte’s reign.
