Blues fans here in the Tavern are eager for some of their youngsters to get a chance, as some of their more established players just aren’t cutting it.
Antonio Conte is a manager that isn’t too fond of giving youngsters a run in the side. But ever since Charly Musonda spoke out about his lack of first-team football via social media, there seems to be an increased amount of opportunities for youth players in the first-team.
Indeed, over the years Chelsea are one of the sides who haven’t produced a flurry of future stars in comparison to the likes of Tottenham and Manchester United. But in their current ranks, there are a number of players who have the potential to be the next big thing if given the opportunity.
With the title-race now very much out of their hands it relieves a slight bit of pressure off the Blues, due to them now only focusing on the easier task of a Champions League spot.
So, with a busy festive period taking its toll on some of the first-team players, it’s about time that the youngsters were given a chance to show exactly what they’re made of.
However, next up is a trip to the Emirates to face an Arsenal side that’s in the hunt for a Champions League spot themselves, trying to avoid another slip-up after some sloppy festive performances.
Nevertheless, with Arsene Wenger’s men waiting, it always likely to be a huge game. Still, if Antonio Conte gives these TWO youngsters a chance then Chelsea will rip into the Gunners.
