Chelsea supporters know exactly what they want from the January transfer window. A new star left-back, more firepower up front and clearing of the deadwood from Antonio Conte’s squad.
Over the past few week we have been surveying the thoughts, hopes and fears of fans over what they want to see and expect from their club in the new year.
Antonio Conte’s side finds themselves in second place with almost half a campaign still to be fought with all to play for in the cups.
With the knock out rounds of the Champions League to come, and competition for other domestic honours, there is a serious appetite to see some new signings at Stamford Bridge during the first month of 2018.
Chelsea supporters have been answering eight questions on the season so far and what they’d like to see from the new year transfer window, as well as what they think is likely to happen.
The results are below.
How do you think Chelsea’s season has gone so far?
Fans were asked to mark the campaign so far out of five – one being very poor, five being excellent and three being bang average.
According to those who responded to the survey, with their scores averaged out across their answers, the Blues are currently rated at a two for their efforts across the Premier League, the Champions League and the domestic cups.
Conte hasn’t exactly hidden his disappointment over how his second season in England has gone and after dropping regular hints over the need for more players and a greater sense of urgency in the market, he will surely be hoping to call upon a few new reinforcements in January.
However, there are some areas of his squad in need or more attention than others, according to the fans.
Where do Chelsea need to strengthen in January?
Fans were allowed to select as many positions as they deemed necessary but it’s clear that there are two sections of the team in desperate need for some new blood and new ideas.
