Arguably a bigger loss than Costa has been Nemanja Matic, who was sold to Manchester United to accommodate the arrival from Monaco of Tiemoue Bakayoko. Michy Batshuayi was allowed join Borussia Dortmund on loan, after failing to convince his manager at Stamford Bridge. The owner of Chelsea wants a very new-faced coach to lead the players - a coach who doesn't have any relationship with the players.

'Conte has made it clear that he's not happy with the club's transfer dealings this season, ' continued Ince. Other than Luis Enrique, two more names are being linked with Chelsea: Maurizio Saari and Thomas Tuchel. When you start in this way and play in this way you have doubt about the game.
