3 things Conte learned from Chelsea’s demolition of Leicester
Chelsea finished the game with 3 youth players on the field, as Antonio Conte proved that he could be the man to see youth flourish in the Chelsea first team.
Chalobah’s incredible assist was, of course, a highlight – and he has proven to Conte that he can be play in the first team.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ola Aina’s performance were somewhat less high-profile, but they also maintained a degree of calm amongst the Chelsea first team. None of the trio looked out of place, and they proved to Antonio Conte that they could hang with the senior players – despite their respective lack of experience.
Will they start against Man Utd? Unlikely – but if Conte’s mission was to find out if they were all good enough; they duly repaid his faith.
