It was a truly miserable weekend for those of a Chelsea persuasion here in the Transfer Tavern following last Sunday’s 2-0 reverse at the hands of Manchester United, with Spurs closing the gap at the top to just four points.
Antonio Conte has a massive chance to land a league and cup double during his first season in English football and a win against Spurs today would set up a final berth against either Arsenal or Manchester City.
Several of the club’s supporters have spent lots of time supping in the Tavern this season and they are still excited at what is to come at the end of the campaign, despite last weekend’s disappointing reverse.
Our landlord is never one to shy away from having an opinion and he has been casting his eye over what the Chelsea team could be today. Here he looks at two players who should be chopped from the team by Italian boss Conte.
