Conte simply must give a chance to these 3 Chelsea players this season – agreed?
John Obi Mikel
John Obi Mikel hasn’t had much of a look-in yet, but much of that has been down to circumstance.
He looked good in pre-season, but had to leave early in order to represent his country at the 2016 Olympics – and he hasn’t really been considered since.
He is now likely ready for first team action, and Conte should give an opportunity before simply writing him off.
Mikel became a key part of Hiddink’s regime last season, and Conte would be wise to place a similar level of significance on him this year.
