Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a big performance tonight against West Brom before they start a mammoth end to February.
The Blues are on their worse run of results in a very long time, having only won twice this year so far. After the West Brom match tonight, Chelsea go into a run of an FA Cup last 16 game, followed by Barcelona home and away ties, with a visit to the two Manchester clubs sandwiched in between.
With that in mind, our regular Blues in the bar think this could define their season and more importantly Antonio Conte’s reign at the club.
Following two three-goal defeats back-to-back for the first time since 1995, Conte will be looking at not letting the slide go any further than tonight. With that in mind, Conte needs to look at his players and in particular, the ones he’s brought in since he came to the club in 2016, to give him a big performance when the Italian needs it most.
