The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern were fearing the worst when Roma went 3-2 up on Wednesday evening. Though Chelsea were able to control the early stages of the game, eventually picking up a 2-0 lead, their lack of stability in midfield really came back to haunt them. In a flash, the Italian outfit were able to turn the game around and take a 3-2 lead as the game reached its final stages.
Fortunately, Eden Hazard was able to come through with a deft header to seal a draw for the Blues, with Chelsea’s blushes saved by their Belgian hero. It was a pretty poor game for a few of Chelsea’s players, and in truth a defeat is probably what they deserved. They’ve certainly got to improve over the next few weeks.
The blame cannot be all theirs, though. Rather, Antonio Conte also made a few decisions that retrospectively look questionable, and so he certainly needs to make those mistakes right this weekend.
With that said, Conte simply must learn from these 2 Roma mistakes against Watford on Saturday…
