Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is ready to hand rising academy talents their fair chance at breaking into the first team, but stated they must earn their place after Saturday's 3-0 win over Leicester City.
Conte used three home-grown youngsters - Nathaniel Chalobah, Ola Aina and Ruben Loftus-Cheek - as second-half substitutes last weekend. Shining brightest was Chalobah, who assisted on the Blues' third goal scored by Victor Moses with a clever piece of link play. After the match Conte revealed that form, not age, will be the ultimate factor in determining who he selections in his first team. "People who know me will know I don't gift a place to anyone," Conte said. "Only those who deserve to play will play for me. It is important for Chalobah and Aina to understand this." Conte also added: "In the future they can play from the start. Age is not important. I made my first appearance in Serie A at only 16." Wed, Oct 19, 2016 12:20:00 PM
