Conte simply must not start these 2 Chelsea players against Middlesbrough – agreed?
Cesc Fabregas has been injured over the last few weeks, but his lack of involvement in the Spanish national team will have given Antonio Conte a chance to see what he can really do.
Nonetheless, like with Terry – Conte simply must allow his players to do the talking on the pitch.
Both Kante and Matic, whom would be contenders for Fabregas’ spot, have impressed this season – and Fabregas is not defensive enough to take up that mantle.
A role from the bench will be best for the Spaniard.
