Can Conte bring the Premier League title back to Chelsea?

Can former Juventus and Italy manager Antonio Conte bring back the silverware to London club?

It's been for sometime now that we knew that former Juventus and Italy boss will take over the club from west London, but can Conte bring the title back to Chelsea?

Last season is the one all Chelsea fans are looking to forget as soon as possible. The Blues, who went into the season as reigning champions, ended the season in 10th place, 31 points behind champions Leicester city.

All time favourite manager Jose Mourinho got the boot in December and, even thou Abramovic's appointment of vastly experienced Dutch boss Guss Hiddink brought back some balance to the club, it wasn't enough to secure any silverware for the Blues, who came up short in both the FA cup and the Champions League.

If you're into Football Betting then the odds of 13/2 for Conte bringing the trophy back to west London could be a bet you might be willing to put your money on. The 46-year-old manager is certainly accustomed to domestic success, as he guided Juventus to three successive Serie A titles before leaving the post to take up the reins of the Italian national team.

Let's take a look at some pros and cons to Antonio Conte's bid to win the Premier League title.

Pros. Conte is obsessed with success, and nothing will stand in his way to reach it. This means that a player is not prepared to step up his efforts to perform for Chelsea, he will be axed!

Not only that he's a great manager but a great coach as well. Do you know who made Paul Pogba what he is today? Conte did! Unlike Mourinho he will put belief into the Chelsea players so they can perform to their maximum potential.

No tedious football. Conte is known to play a 4-2-4 or 3-5-2 and will want his Chelsea team to dominate other teams in midfield next season- Conte demands the players to get forward and overpower the other teams defence.

He's at the same level as Sir Alex Ferguson, well that being said by Carlos Tevez who played both under Fergusn and Conte.

Cons. He can end up being Mourinho number 2. He has an intense approach to his training and wants to challenge his players, which might not suit best the current crop of the players that are at his disposal at Chelsea. The current team made it clear that they preferred Guus's laid-back easy going style over Mourinho's demanding style.

Andrea Pirlo said Conte’s words have the ability to “crash through doors of your mind, often quite violently, and settle deep within you”. Again, this psychological torment might not best suit the current Chelsea team. Even thou some players naturally like this and will be motivated by harsh words, others may not and will want an easy-going manager back!

Conte is not the best with the press. It's well known that Conte says everything that's on his mind no matter the consequences, something FA might not like a bit and, this type of acting could earn him a few touchline bans in the upcoming Premier League race.

There is a large chance he will have to bring down his intensity and this could be detrimental to Chelsea’s success. If Chelsea players don't like the intense behaviour from their new gaffer they might just turn to Abramovic and demand for sacking him. If this happens, Conte will have to bring his behaviour down and this might result in trophy-less season yet again for Chelsea.
