Premier League champions Chelsea kicked of the campaign losing 3-2 at home to Burnley, with captain Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas getting sent off.
The main question that is going around is will Antonio Conte leave?
Conte doesn’t do himself any favours, with the Chelsea board not supporting him you work with what you got. Selling Matic to another rival club isn’t the problem, the problem is not having back up, you don’t sell Chalobah and loan Loftus-Cheek when you bring in Bakayoko who gets injured so you now have nobody, ands thats down to Antonio poor team management.
Another issue I seem to see is Courtois, constantly keeps taking short goal kicks every time. It becomes predictable and means other teams will click on to the fact you are going short and will push men up and give high pressure. Chelsea then seem to just kick the ball upfield or out for a throw-in.
Courtois needs to be fierce and not scared of getting hurt. Many times last season we saw the Chelsea defence shielding the ball waiting for Courtois to pick the ball up, he would never leave his line and eventually Luiz or Cahill will have to kick it out for a corner or a throw-in. When this happens David Luiz would shout and show his frustration to T. Courtois.
I think Conte has lost his passion for the club with things not going his way, fans at the Bridge immediately think there is something going on between Conte and the club
