Chelsea manager Antonio Content has had time to reflect on his team’s humiliating defeat at the hands of Watford. That decision is to give his players a three-day rest.
The decision comes after players have been complaining for a while that Conte’s training sessions are too intense and could be a factor in their lackluster performance so far this season. Conte finally decided to listen to their complaint.
Chelsea’s next match is against West Brom, on Monday, February 12. It may seem like any normal match but it’s not, and here’s why: Two previous Chelsea managers have been sacked after losing to West Brom. Those two managers were Andre Villas Boas and Di Matteo, both of who were sacked by Chelsea right after losing to West Brom. And Antonio Conte is facing West Brom next week.
