Whilst the FA Cup is a huge competition, Chelsea’s clash against Peterborough this weekend represents a decent opportunity for Conte to rest a few of his key stars…

The Italian has masterminded quite the run of form at Stamford Bridge, but he has done it by using a relatively small group of players. Players like Gary Cahill and David Luiz have been constants under Conte – and in less significant games, such as that against Peterborough this weekend, it might be time for Conte to make a few changes.

In truth, Chelsea should win the game comfortably, and they should be able to do so whilst resting a few of their more important players.

Chelsea have a pretty sizeable squad, filled with players of both youth and experience – and Conte would be wise to start using a few of his fringe players instead. Not only will this keep them happy, but it will give a few of the Italian’s regular starters a bit of a rest ahead of a busy run of fixtures. Squad management is important, and Conte simply must rest a few players this weekend.

With that said,┬áConte needs to rest these 2 players against Peterborough on Sunday…
