3 things Conte absolutely must do for Chelsea to beat Bournemouth on Boxing Day
Michy Batshuayi is the natural replacement for Diego Costa in this side, but you wouldn’t bet against Conte following in typical Chelsea fashion against Bournemouth.
In the past, Chelsea managers have often opted for experience over youth, even if it means playing Cesc Fabregas as a 9 due to a lack of experienced offensive options – but against Bournemouth, young Batshuayi simply must get a run out.
He has surely been chomping at the bit to get started, and you can bet that he will put in a good performance if he is selected.
Batshuayi is a natural forward, and he must be given a chance to shine.
