Our Chelsea fans here inside the Transfer Tavern will be hoping Antonio Conte can really ramp up their season going into 2018. While things have been going fairly well of late, the punters propping up our bar were hoping they’d get a lot closer to Manchester City in the title race.
We’ve seen Chelsea have a little wobble at the beginning of the season, but in recent months they look like a team on a mission not to give up their title so easily to presumably the blue half of Manchester. Indeed, there doesn’t look like there will be a repeat of the club’s last title defence…
Conte had a horrendous summer transfer window and will be looking at not letting history repeat itself, having already captured Ross Barkley from Everton, Conte will be hoping that this is a sign of things to come.
What Chelsea have that most teams don’t though is a plethora of talent just waiting in the youth academy.
Much as been made of the loan system Chelsea use but on the odd occasion it seems to work for them, what Conte could do with doing in the tough times is leaning on his youngsters a little more.
