Last season was a fantastic one for the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern…
Antonio Conte enjoyed a fantastic start to life in the English capital, turning a faltering Chelsea team into Premier League winners once again – with the Italian’s tactical mastery proving too much for his Premier League rivals.
Their preparations for the new campaign have been far from ideal, but with so many quality players within the Chelsea first team, there is no doubting that the Blues will impress in the new season.
The 2017/18 Premier League campaign doesn’t start until next weekend, but Chelsea are set to feature in the annual curtain raiser this Sunday – with a game against Arsenal coming up for the Blues.
It will be a tough fixture, and Conte will want to get one back on the side that cost him a league and cup double last season.
However, in order to stand a good chance of winning, Conte must ensure that he picks the right players, and that might mean making a few bold choices with regards to his starting XI.
With that said, these 2 players simply must start for Chelsea against Arsenal on Sunday…
