After badly injuring his knee in February, Kurt Zouma has not played a minute for Chelsea.
But the 21-year-old was back on the training ground with his teammates yesterday.
Zouma could be key player for Chelsea under new manager Antonio Conte.
Therefore, Zouma – who was starting frequently alongside captain John Terry before his horror injury – has an much increased chance of featuring, as there may be three spots for centre-backs, compared to just two in Chelsea’s old 4-2-3-1 system.
Furthermore, 3-5-2 often uses a sweeper and, with his impressive pace, Zouma would be a prime candidate for that role.
