Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes rotation of his players will crucial during the current campaign as the Blues are facing three different competitions instead of just two.
The Italian manager, speaking ahead of next clash against Newcastle United, confirmed he will rotate Chelsea players once again following the last game against Swansea, in which he made several changes: “In this period it’s very important to have rotation and give rest to all of the players, – said Conte. – I think it was positive because we won the game, it was a good answer from all my players. When the period is so busy it’s a necessity to have this rotation”.
Cesar Azpilicueta was among the Chelsea players who rested on Wednesday night against Swansea at Stamford Bridge: “If you have to play four competitions in one season it’s normal to have this type of rotation. – Conte added – It’s right for every player to accept my decision. I try to make the best decision for us to try to win every game. I trust my players, I believe in my players and I like to give them the chance to show they deserve to play”.
