The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting nothing but a win against Watford on Saturday. It has been a tough few weeks for the Blues, and a draw at Stamford Bridge against Roma has done little to bring the fans back on side. It was a disappointing performance from the Blues, and unless things turn around quickly, Antonio Conte could be in a real spot of bother.
Typically, a game against Watford – Chelsea’s next opponent – would be viewed as an easy fixture, but not this time around. Marco Silva has got his side playing very well, and they will undoubtedly cause Chelsea problems. It won’t be an easy game for the Blues, and so Antonio Conte needs to get everything spot on, both in terms of tactics and in terms of the players he picks.
He needs to make sure that he begins the process of rotating, given that against Roma, a number of players looked very tired indeed. Likewise, a few poor performance need to be acted upon.
With that said, Conte simply must drop these 2 Chelsea players against Watford – agreed?
