Here are five players who the manager will turn too and can boost the club’s title bid this season but have underperformed this season.
4. Cesc Fabregas
Fabregas has only a single goal and three assists to his name this season, after 14 games. The Spaniard will have to add more value to the team with his passing and experience; as the club look to defend their title.
The former Barcelona player is one of the club’s most creative assets and will have to work harder to get the better out the player. Chelsea’s lack of goalscorers across the team is alarming this season; Fabregas could help ease the pressure off the strikers by chipping in with a few goals.
3. Gary Cahill
Having made 10 appearances for the Blues this season; Cahill has been part of the team that racked up four clean sheets. However, the England vice-captain still needs to improve and step up his game. To lead the club, from the back, on the field and help and it’s young and new players; Cahill will have to get used to the captaincy role.
With his contract running out in 2019, the England defender will need to put in a string of great displays this season in order to ensure his future at the club and possibly look to extend his stay. Cahill began the season with a red card; was slapped with a three-game ban and has found it hard to cement his place in the starting eleven post the incident.
