Chelsea were hammered in midweek in the Champions League as a rampant Roma put Antonio Conte’s men to the sword to seal a miserable return to his homeland for the former Juventus manager.
The Blues have not been themselves this season having been so impressive last season, and despite picking up points and almost securing Champions League qualification, there’s an air of worry around Stamford Bridge at the moment.
That worry has been transcending into fans here in the Tavern, and our landlord has been having a good old chat with them this week about what could possibly need to change for the current Premier League champions.
One thing our landlord thinks the Blues could do with doing is adding another world class attacking talent, and he thinks the club need to go all out in January to sign Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean is still one of the standout players in the top flight despite a stop start season so far, and with Manchester City also rumoured to be interested in him for quite some time now, Chelsea would be wise to steal a march on their rivals and seal a deal for Sanchez.
His speed, footballing brain, and eye for goal make him a world class talent, and if he can be added to the ranks alongside the likes of Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard, then we could well see Chelsea become the dominant force they strive to be both domestically, and in Europe.
Chelsea fans, what do you think? Would you take Sanchez? Let us know your thoughts!
