Conte simply must start these 2 Chelsea players against Tottenham – agreed?
Cesc Fabregas has been a bit-part player for Chelsea so far this season – but if any game calls for his inclusion, it is this one.
Nobody knows about playing Tottenham more than the Spaniard, and he will have several reasons for wanting to put on a good showing.
He has played for both Chelsea and Arsenal – and he knows how high profile and important games against the club are; and so will want to make sure that he gets one up on his old rivals.
What’s more, his lack of first team action surely has him chomping at the bit to put in a good performance and impress Conte.
If there is any game for him to put in a good showing – this is it. Conte should give him that chance.
