The Chelsea Problem: Small Core Of First Team Players

Antonio Conte has often stated that he won the title with 13 players — their starting XI Cesc Fabregas and Willian — but, like all managers plotting a European campaign, he longs for two first-teamers for each position. Chief among Conte's concerns has been a...

John Mikel Obi, From Shiny New Toy to China

Manchester City vs Chelsea: A review
