Our Chelsea fans here inside the Transfer Tavern were hoping for a lot more reinforcements in this winter window, with Antonio Conte continuing to struggle with his threadbare squad in a doomed bid to regain his Premier League title.
Chelsea, this season, have hit many rocky patches and a lot of it is down to Conte’s options on the bench.
