Chelsea is not having exactly the season they were expecting. After winning the Premier League season in spectacular fashion last year, Antonio Conte’s team seems to be struggling to perform at the same level. It could be a matter of their opponents having learned their secrets, but the Italian manager knows that they will have to take things one game at a time. That is why the game against Roma will be the team’s priority ahead of the derby against Manchester United at the weekend.
In the Champions League, Chelsea sits in in first place with seven points after three games, and will most likely move to the next stage. However, in the Premier League, the London side are nine points behind leaders City and a loss to Manchester United could spell the end of their title chances this season.
