Red cards and Chelsea have been synonymous in our last three official games.

Against Arsenal in the FA Cup final, Victor Moses was sent off as Chelsea lost to Arsenal 2-1.

Against Arsenal in the Community Shield, Chelsea lost to Arsenal again on penalties despite taking the lead through Victor Moses, with Pedro’s red card destabilising the team immediately after.

And now, in the 3-2 loss to Burnley, Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas were both sent off.

Conte has now said he’d start training the team in such situations.

He said after the game: “I think we must have the right experience to face this type of situation, above all in the last three official games we have ended twice with ten men against Arsenal, and today with nine. Me, I have to start to study a new formation with ten or nine players. When it happens with regularity you have to be worried.”
