Antonio Conte’s squad may be small, but there are a number of young players that are quickly moving through the ranks in Chelsea’s developmental system…
For the most part this season, Antonio Conte has opted to utilise a fairly standardised team. Key players like Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante have featured predominantly – whilst Chelsea’s defensive line has remained unchanged for months.
The system and group of players is clearly working, considering how impressive the Blues have been this season – but there is one major drawback to Conte’s methods.
The players that play regularly are enjoying themselves and getting game time, but the fortunes of those not involved are decidedly less so. Certain players have hardly had a chance all season, and no area has remained as unchanged as the Chelsea defence.
Conte has a host of young defenders to choose from, but his side’s fine form have meant that they haven’t had a chance – and so a loan might be calling.
With that said, Conte needs to loan out these 2 exciting defenders this week – agreed?
