Is Crisis - Hit Conte’s Chelsea Career Destined To End Like Mourinho’s?

Chelsea have been unable to match their title-winning form so far this season with injuries beginning to pile up and energy levels low.  Chelsea cantered to the Premier League title last season, propelled to glory by a 13-game winning streak that left the rest reeling.

But the question was always lurking in the background: how well would they fare when European football was factored in? We now have the answer. Not very. That’s because the conditions for the victories last season cannot be replicated.

Conte alarmingly revealed on Friday that his squad are working up to 70 percent less on the tactical and physical aspects in training due to the increased demands in the calendar. It is only natural that an on-field drop-off would follow.

“I have my methods,” Conte said in response to reports that the Chelsea squad were wearied by their current training schedules. “They’re the same as last season when we won the league.

“Honestly, I think we are working maybe 70 per cent less this season. Maybe for this reason we are having trouble. On tactical and physical aspects, [it’s] less.

“When you play every three days it’s impossible to work above all on the physical aspects. On the tactical aspects, you have to work less and pay less attention on every detail. We are doing this.

“I think that when you have to play four competitions, this is the path you must follow. But it’s normal. The problem is to play every game with the same players. That’s a big problem.”
