Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping to bounce back after their defeat to Man United last weekend.
Chelsea are in the middle of probably one of the worst run of fixtures our regulars have seen across Europe in recent times, sandwiched between two Champions League ties against Barcelona were away visits to both Manchester clubs. Moreover, Chelsea are yet to register a win in the first two matches, with a draw and a loss against fellow top-four rivals United.
Antonio Conte seems to have his work cut out this season and a visit to a side who’ve just won the first trophy of the season is not the easiest of games to be going in to after a defeat, according to our barman. Indeed, it’s going to be a very tough test for the Blues.
Conte really needs to get the Blues firing again, or fear of missing out of the top-four altogether. He needs to keep things fresh and a rotation of players will have to be used again today. So, with that in mind, here’s a look at TWO flops he should axe at the Etihad today.
