Antonio Conte has done a stellar job managing the players at his disposal so far this season…
He has, somehow, managed to turn a group of underperforming, overpaid disappointing players into a group of winners – with the Blues are now on course to break the Premier League record for consecutive wins – should they beat Tottenham on Wednesday.
The job he has done has been near perfect, but despite all of his successes – there has been one outstanding complaint from the majority of the Chelsea fans – and that is that he has largely achieved his success by using a specific group of 11 or 12 players.
Granted, the fact that he has achieved so much with such a small group is impressive and he deserves credit, but that system also has its drawbacks.
There are a number of players within the Chelsea first team squad that deserve a chance and that have worked hard to be given an opportunity – but as of yet, that chance hasn’t come.
Conte is always going to have his preferred starting eleven, but against weaker opposition or when a game is won – he needs to start utilising the rest of his squad.
With that said, Conte needs to give these 2 fringe Chelsea players a chance in the second-half of the season…
