Defensively, Chelsea could do with a few January improvements…

Antonio Conte has led the Blues fantastically thus far, with Chelsea far exceeding expectations at present.

Much of that has been down to a stellar formation change that has seen some of Chelsea’s faltering stars return to form – and that has duly seen Chelsea return to the upper echelons of the Premier League.

The risk still remains, however, that some of Chelsea’s less consistent stars could still pose a problem for Antonio Conte – and that is something he should look to fix.

Chelsea’s defence is, undoubtedly, the weakest point of the Blues first team – with the likes of Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry and Luiz all proving inconsistent as of late.

Should Conte look to solve this problem, there are few better nations to look towards than Germany. The Germans have become renowned for their esteemed defences; and the current crop of German stars has some of Europe’s best.

With that said,┬áConte simply must sign these 2 German defenders in January – agreed?
