So did a successor. Even before Antonio Conte’s revelatory change to 3-4-2-1 last season (which, typically, came courtesy of a substitution in the 3-0 defeat to Arsenal), the Italian showed his prowess with influential changes. His first two wins required late interventions from Michy Batshuayi, who set up a goal on his debut and scored on his second appearance.

Roberto Martinez appeared to have such an alchemy in his first season at Everton when a series of substitutes delivered nine goals and an extra 15 points; by his last few months, when he brought on Oumar Niasse to turn a 2-0 lead against West Ham into a 3-2 defeat, that golden touch seemed to have deserted him.
