Chelsea ground out a 1-1 draw with Liverpool yesterday to show manager Antonio Conte plenty of heart and belief as the Blues rounded out November with a point.
The Italian manager has been coming under some unwarranted pressure this season as Chelsea have struggled to hit the same heights as season.
However, the Blues are still in and about the title mix, and are doing well in Europe to an extent, meaning Conte should be given the chance to at least see the season through.
With January fast approaching, all eyes will be on Conte and Chelsea to see if they act once again in the market, and our landlord here at the Tavern thinks some world class talent could well be ideal tonic for Chelsea if they want to regain their title.
One player he thinks the club should make a big move for is Bayern Munich midfield ace Thiago Alcantara, who has been instrumental for the Germans for a number of seasons now.
Thiago is a lovely player of immense footballing ability, and with Chelsea looking light in the middle following the signing of Tiemoune Bakayoko in the summer, an addition in the middle of the park could be the ideal sort of signing for the club.
The Spaniard possesses magnificent passing ability and a top footballing brain, and should Chelsea be serious about making improvements to their already talented squad, then Thiago is the sort of player they should be looking to capture.
