After a hectic game against Liverpool, Chelsea head next to face Swansea at Stamford Bridge. Coach Antonio Conte has been talking tough about the fixtures in the Premier League as his club played on Wednesday in the Champions League and also played on Saturday in the league.
The fixtures are coming thick and fast. In order to keep his team in shape, Conte may decide to drop his star man Eden Hazard for Swansea City. N’Golo Kante is also likely to be rested going into the fixture.
Eden Hazard has been playing every game since his return from injury early this season. His performances for Chelsea has been one of the best in the league so far. He further showed it in the game against Liverpool on Saturday where he dazzled the Reds defenders.
To challenge for the league, Conte want to have his Belgian star available all season long. Heading into December whereby the games keep coming, resting Hazard for this fixture in which the likes of Pedro and Willian can take his place is a good decision to take.
Kante is the engine room for Chelsea and has been key in the midfield for the Blues. But the availability of Danny Drinkwater means that Conte now has options in that position and should be able to navigate through Swansea easily.
