The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their next game to begin. AS Roma come to Stamford Bridge this evening, and the game is very important for the Blues. A win would help extend a fantastic start to Chelsea’s European campaign, but its importance extends far beyond that. Chelsea are in a bad run of form, and a big win could help put an end to that.
Antonio Conte, though, will have to get his team selection spot on if he wants to win, as his current selections aren’t working. Thus, it’s no real surprise that according to Tancredi Palmeri, a few changes could be on the cards. According to Palmieri, Christensen has been training with a view to starting the game, with David Luiz expected to shift into midfield against the Italian giants.
It would mark a stark change in Conte’s team, but it would make sense. Luiz offers far more protection and strength in the middle of the park than the likes of Fabregas, whilst Christensen has impressed in defence for Chelsea.
This has generated quite a bit of chatter amongst Chelsea fans on Reddit, and surprisingly, the inclusion of Christenen over Luiz in defence isn’t what is creating discussion. Instead, Gary Cahill is, once again, the name on everybody’s lips – with fans divided on whether they think he should start.
