Giroud

Morata

Has Chelsea’s lack of firepower cost us the Champions League or is it Antonio Conte?

That's the question I am asking now after witnessing Chelsea's inability to kill teams off demonstrated once again at Swansea on Saturday.

Now regular readers will know that I am firmly in the Antonio Conte OUT brigade having backed him 100% ever since he walked through the door two summers ago.

Chelsea came back from two goals down to win for the first time in fifteen years on Saturday lunchtime against Southampton with Olivier Giroud the obvious hero. For me, the front three that started the game turned out to be our biggest problem.

Have a watch of today's Video below on my You Tube Channel and I will explain my theory in much more detail:


As you can see, I was more than annoyed by what was happening in the first half and for fifteen minutes of the second half.

Tammy Abraham, Batshuayi, Kante, Fabregas, Hazard and news of two key injuries ahead of Tottenham.

With the transfer deadline now closed, it's time to have a look at our new signings this season and to evaluate Antonio Conte's squad - I think we have done well, I really do.

OK, so Chelsea have not gone all out and spent ridiculous money on players this month as the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United (Sanchez wages) and Arsenal have, but in my opinion, have made three shred signings for around £55m that fill the holes within Antonio Conte's squad as we head into the final third of the season.
