Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that next season they can fare a lot better in the league than they currently are. Indeed, after recent results, much of the good feeling picked up thanks to a title win last year has largely evaporated.
The Blues so far this year have been very poor, slipping down and out of the top-four, being knocked out of the semi-final of the Carabao Cup and last 16 of the Champions League have all led to reports gathering pace that Antonio Conte is facing the axe at Stamford Bridge this summer.
However, next season Chelsea will be looking for Mo Salah-like inspiration from certain players of the group. After leaving Stamford Bridge, the Liverpool man has been a revelation upon his return to these shores and, considering the Blues’ array of attacking talent, some of their stars should look to emulate him.
Conte will be looking for big game performances each week from his players, and if he can turn this season around it could be the platform Chelsea need to kick on into next year.
That’s easier said than done of course, though the punters propping up the bar do believe the Blues have the kind of talent within their squad available to Conte, that can surge them on to their third league title in five years next campaign.
With that being said, our landlord has taken a closer look at TWO players that need to perform at ‘Mo Salah Level’ for Conte next season…
