Chelsea are currently in amazing form, and if the team continues like this, we’d cruise to the title in style, breaking and setting new records on the way.

In a few days time, the January transfer window will be open, and while Chelsea are in great form, there are some important areas Blues manager, Antonio Conte must work on before the window closes.

Inasmuch as we’ve been great this season, injuries and fixtures have favoured us a bit, and we must be prepared for the worst to be the best at the end of the season.

One important area Conte should focus on is the central midfield position. With the sale of Oscar, and Mikel Obi leaving in January, Chelsea will be quite thin in that area, and not strengthening the midfield is a risk that might be too deadly to take.

The wing-back is another position we’ve been very fortunate, this season. Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso have run along the flanks since the switch to a 3-4-3 formation in October. They have played every game and haven’t fatigued or faced any injury. The wing-back position is another area where Chelsea are quite short of options. If we must maintain our momentum till the end of the season, we must be willing to make sure our wing-backs are in great condition. Giving Moses and Alonso occasional rests will also help keep them fresh and energised.

If we must avoid any hindrance to our form, then we must strengthen these positions during the January transfer window.
