Drop them: Conte must axe these 2 players from today’s starting Chelsea XI against Stoke

The Chelsea supporting punters were in quality spirits here in the Transfer Tavern on Monday evening, following the Blues’ 1-0 win over Manchester United which set up an FA Cup semi-final with Arsenal at the end of April.

The impressive N’Golo Kante scored the only goal of the contest as Antonio Conte’s men marched on, with success now looking to be on the cards in both the league and in the FA Cup.

Several of the regular Chelsea supporting drinkers in the Tavern persuaded the landlord to stay open a little while longer and you can bet your bottom dollar that a few punters had sore heads on Tuesday morning.

Ahead of this weekend’s league game with Stoke City the punters have been discussing the Italian boss’ team selection, with many predicting that he might make some changes for this one.
