Graeme Le Saux: “Conte has a lot of gaps in his squad that needs to be filled this summer”

Abraham has signed a new deal with Chelsea

Ex-Chelsea defender Graeme Le Saux thinks that club manager Antonio Conte has a lot of gaps in his squad that needs to be filled this summer.

“Chelsea have left gaps in their squad that need filling,” he said.

“You can have a game like they did against Burnley, have a man sent off and lose, But conceding three goals is damaging. If that continues, you have to say they have left a hole. Alvaro Morata is a replacement for Diego Costa in attack, but wing-back is an area that has not been strengthened. And they badly need somebody that can plug that gap in midfield.

“If I was in that dressing room, I would have been really disappointed that we had sold Nemanja Matic. He was one of their best players. That does not send a great message. It seemed odd – and to Manchester United as well.
