Conte simply must start these 2 Chelsea players against Leicester City on Saturday

Nathan Ake

It would be a shock to see Nathan Ake come in to the Chelsea team straight away, but Antonio Conte may have little choice.

According to the Evening Standard, the main motivation for bringing Ake back into the fold was because of injury fears over Marcos Alonso, who has reportedly been playing through the pain barrier as of late.

If Alonso really is injured and is struggling, he needs to take time off – as otherwise, the injury will just worsen. This could have catastrophic consequences as the season continues.

Ake is perfectly capableĀ and would do well against Leicester City. If Alonso is fit, he should play – but all signs point towards the notion that he isn’t.

If that’s the case – give Ake a chance.
