Conte simply must not start these 2 Chelsea players against Middlesbrough – agreed?
John Terry is Chelsea’s captain – and for over a decade, he has been the man upon which the Blues can rely.
However, at 36-years-old, Terry is past his best – and it is time for him to take a step back.
There will always be calls to reinstate the veteran Englishman, but at present – Conte simply cannot make any changes to what is a winning and successful formula.
He is still Chelsea’s captain – but he will be captain from the bench.
