Premier League champions Chelsea should have had the perfect summer, but it felt a bit of a let down at times with a number of key targets turning them down, including Romelu Lukaku, Fernando Llorente, Ross Barkley and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Antonio Conte cut a frustrated figure for much of the summer and the Blues’ season also got off to a bad start on the pitch when they lost the Community Shield to Arsenal and had two players sent off in their Premier League opening weekend defeat to Burnley, although they have since bounced back with wins over Tottenham Hotspur and Everton.
In the latest episode of FW Team Whispers, we profile the Blues and their current situation.
We look at who could partner N’Golo Kanté in the middle of the pitch with Danny Drinkwater’s deadline day arrival, by seeing what the former Leicester City man offers the Blues compared to Cesc Fàbregas and Tiemoué Bakayoko.
Diego Costa’s situation is also put under the spotlight, while former Chelsea man and Sky Sports presenter Scott Minto gives us his verdict on Álvaro Morata and tells us what he thinks of Llorente picking Spurs over the Blues.
