LONDON — A look at Chelsea’s path to the English Premier League title:

Month league record: Played three, won three.

League position: Second, behind Manchester City on goal difference.

A 2-2 draw at Swansea was followed by defeat at home to Liverpool and a 3-0 loss at Arsenal, which prompted Conte to take action. Three down at halftime, Conte tinkered with his tactics, installing a 3-4-3 formation.
