The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are fearing the worst ahead of their side’s upcoming clash with Watford. It has been a very tough few weeks for Chelsea, with defeats coming at Crystal Palace and Man City, whilst the Blues were forced to take it to the wire to avoid a third consecutive defeat against AS Roma on Wednesday.
Despite leading the game 2-0, the Blues let their lead slip and eventually found themselves 3-2 down, with Eden Hazard coming to the rescue for Chelsea towards the end of the game. Given that Chelsea were the favourites for the game and the fact that it was at Stamford Bridge, the result was very disappointing for the club, but the bad news didn’t stop there.
Following the game, Antonio Conte revealed that Chelsea have some real injury concerns following the game – with the boss admitting that both David Luiz and Tiemoue Bakayoko were suffering from pains following the fixture.
Though he didn’t go as far as to say that they have been explicitly ruled out ahead of the weekend, it seems clear that neither player will be at 100%, and so that’s a real problem for Conte – with only Cesc Fabregas available in midfield in that regard.
Unsurprisingly, this news is generating a lot of negative responses from the Chelsea fans on Reddit, with a number of Blues taking to the site to reveal their anger.
Take a look at a few responses below…
