The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting nothing but a win against Man Utd this weekend. The Blues have had a horrible season, but a win in the FA Cup could make everything much better.
It won’t be easy, though, as Jose Mourinho certainly knows how to win big games. The pair have had quite the rivalry since Conte moved to London, and though both have enjoyed wins against one another, the Blues are not going into this one as the favourites.
Conte, then, will need to pick the right team, and one player that most fans don’t want to see on the field, it seems, is Tiemoue Bakayoko.
We recently asked fans whether Conte drop the Frenchman, and in response, 62% responded saying that he should. The full results of this poll can be seen below.
Bakayoko, who has made 42 appearances in all competitions this season, has been a regular under Antonio Conte this season, but his form has been mixed at best. The Frenchman has failed to be a consistent force through the midfield, and poor performances have undoubtedly outnumbered solid performances.
He played well against Liverpool a few weeks ago, and so that’s likely why as many as 38% of fans have voted in favour of him – but the majority of fans are clearing seeing the bigger picture.
