Antonio Conte has demanded that he needs more players in his team as the Premier League resumes in less than one week from now.
Following the Community Shield loss to Arsenal at the Wembley Stadium, Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has insisted that he doesn’t have any pity for Chelsea, claiming the Blues have conducted a strange window, spending huge amounts on new players while getting rid of several promising youngsters.
Bertrand Traore, Nathan Ake and Nathaniel Chalobah have been sold on while the likes of Tammy Abraham, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Kurt Zouma will spend this season out on loan.
Gerrard said: “You can’t have any sympathy with Chelsea.
“They bring four players in, one of those is a goalkeeper, and they let seven or eight go.
“Nathan Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek, Ake – for me, all of those are good enough to be in Chelsea’s squad.
“Unless people above Conte are making decisions and selling players without his permission, that’s the only way I can see it.”
