Three in, three out at Chelsea in January
Chelsea currently find themselves amid an incredible eleven-game winning run following a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
But to ensure a fifth Premier League title comes the way of the Blues this May, Antonio Conte must make significant strides in the transfer market next month.
The Italian has masterminded Chelsea’s rival following a formation switch from 4-2-3-1 to 3-4-3 in September. But where can Conte further improve matters?
Successful teams are often at their most vulnerable during a good run of form, as the cracks are regularly painted over by impressive results.
So in the long term, Conte must ensure his squad is well positioned for when the 3-4-3 formula stops being so effective – not to mention the west Londoners’ likely return to the Champions League next season.
With all this taken into consideration, here are THREE players Chelsea should sell and THREE players they should buy when the transfer window opens in January.
