Antonio Conte has decided to give his Chelsea players three days off following our 4-1 defeat to Watford, according to the London Evening Standard.
If you watched our 3-0 defeat to AFC Bournemouth and 4-1 embarrassment at the hands of Watford, you could be forgiven for thinking that the Premier League champions looked jaded and lacklustre.
Conte appears to hold the same opinion. The London Evening Standard claim that he has given his players two additional days off, three in total, in hope of improving our fortunes.
You’d have to think that after two shocking performances like the ones we have seen in the past week, Conte would be eager to get his players onto the training pitch and sort this mess out.
However, it looks as though he has decided to shelve his problems during a period of mounting pressure. It’s difficult to see how he can survive this. We’re not sure giving the players more time off is going to have any sort of positive impact. We’ll see.
