Chelsea v Stoke City

Mark Lawrenson believes Chelsea will ease to a 3-0 win against Stoke City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has hinted that the January transfer window could be crucial in determining his future at Stamford Bridge.

"There are only four places for the Champions League and two for the Europa League and you have to fight to qualify for this competition".

Antonio Conte insists that a top-four finish in the Premier League will be a success for Chelsea.

All signs thus point to an easy win for Chelsea, who have been in pretty good form despite struggling a bit to convert chances in front of goal.

"This year was a fantastic year because to win the title in England is not easy".




Chelsea's squad is stocked so heavily with talent that the absences of Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Andreas Christensen in the interests of squad rotation went nearly unnoticed against hapless Stoke yesterday.

"We need to have all my players in the best form, and we know very well in January will be a hard time because of the games, and in February the Champions League starts again, so I need all my players at the top of their game". We must go game by game. Already leading the league with 41 goals conceded, Stoke could be in for a long day (through with Chelsea's recent conversion rate issues, perhaps not). "We've scored less, but we've conceded less, too".

In addition, Conte was able to take off Victor Moses, N'Golo Kante and Alvaro Morata, all by the 71st minute, to rest their legs ahead of the visit to Arsenal on Wednesday. It is one of the biggest clubs in the world and I am happy to be here and I am enjoying my football, so I am very delighted with everything.

"I made decisions that I feel will help us, certainly with the game on Monday".

"We are a good group, we are working well together and we have to keep working and getting results".

"We might have Erik Pieters as well so the landscape of Monday's game changes completely for us hopefully".
