Three reasons Michail Antonio would be perfect for Chelsea
Chelsea have been in fine form this season. Despite losing their most recent league fixture to rivals Tottenham Hotspur, the Blues had previously gone on a run of thirteen straight victories in the Premier League, which equalled the record set by Arsenal during their famous ‘Invincibles’ campaign.
Due to their good form, boss Antonio Conte has had little need to rotate his strongest starting XI. However, as the season goes on and legs start to get tired, he will certainly need some backup options.
One of the few positions where he doesn’t have that is wing-back, usually occupied by Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso in his lauded 3-4-3 formation. Antonio is capable of playing on either side, and having played as both a winger and a full-back during his time at West Ham, he would be the perfect fit.
Chelsea fans also love a player who puts every ounce of effort into the game and looks like he is thoroughly enjoying himself out on the pitch. Antonio is the personification of that – the fans would adore him.
