The Daily Telegraph have reported exclusively on Friday, as regards how Italian tactician Antonio Conte reacted to Chelsea’s 3-0 loss at AS Roma on Tuesday night.
Chelsea were thoroughly beaten by Roma, and are the only Premier League side to have lost a match in the UEFA Champions League this campaign.
The Blues’ defending at points in the AS Roma game was so bad that it has been mocked on social media.
Matt Law, a source for Chelsea news, claims that Antonio Conte was angry and gave the players a severe dressing down.
There is much to worry about Chelsea supporters who will be reading this news and wondering how long the tactician will remain at the Bridge.
The Chelsea source reveals that two key Blues midfielders are nursing injury problems ahead of the crucial Premier League game against rivals Manchester United on Sunday.
Injuries to France international N’Golo Kante and midfielder Danny Drinkwater have meant that summer signing Tiemoue Bakayoko has had to play matches with pain in his knee, while Spaniard Cesc Fabregas has shown signs of tiredness after overworking himself.
N’Golo Kante has been sidelined with a hamstring problem since playing for his national team in Bulgaria during the October international break. Blues technical staff are hopeful over the Frenchman but it is far from definite he will feature.
With this latest development, midfielder Danny Drinkwater will have a good opportunity of starting against the red devils.
