The Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern would be forgiven for trying to forget this season altogether, despite winning the Premier League title under a year ago.
Chelsea had a rocky start to the season suffering a loss in their first match of the new season in which it looked likely to our punters that Antonio Conte may be on his way out. The Blues refound their form to climb into third and seem set to stay there for the remainder of the season.
However, since the turn of the year, Chelsea have struggled in all competitions amid a worrying backdrop. Moreover, in the Premier League where they are currently sat outside the Champions League spots by some way. It’s been hard to argue the point of who’s impressed so far in the season, with so many of the players seemingly disinterested.
Indeed, in another bleak season following a title win, the Blues in the bar think that these TWO players have been a step above the rest. Chelsea fans would you agree?
