Antonio Conte has a major disciplinary issue going on among his ranks, and it needs to be dealt with, fast.
As David Luiz flew into Sead Kolasinac on Sunday afternoon and saw red, it meant that in three consecutive games against Arsenal the Blues have been reduced to ten-men. We haven’t won any of those, the ill-discipline is costing us dearly.
It isn’t just a freak coincidence, either. You only have to take one look at stats provided by Squawka to see that the Chelsea players are having trouble controlling themselves.
The Blues have received three red cards so far this season, more than any other team in Europe’s top five leagues. Only five teams have been shown more cards in total, too, and none of those are based in England.
Opta have also weighed in to provide further evidence of the disciplinary problems in SW6.
68 – Chelsea have committed more fouls than any other team in the Premier League this season. Naughty.

There is no excuse for players to be losing their cool when so much is on the line. They are professionals, and they need to start acting that way.
