Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are trying to remain confident despite their worrying loss to Crystal Palace at the weekend.
The Blues have been flying this season but it was the Eagles who soared higher on Saturday as they recorded a hugely surprising 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge – opening up the title race somewhat.
Of course, the Blues are still well in control in the title race and if they stamp out the slip-ups for the rest of the season there can be no doubt that they will still win the league.
And, from there, Antonio Conte will be looking to further the strength of his squad in the transfer window but according to goal.com Claudio Marchisio is not going to be a part of any deal.
Who they bring in, of course, remains to be seen, but it appears Marchisio will be staying at Juventus for now.
Thoughts, Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
