Chelsea fans had mixed feelings when they saw young defender Andreas Christensen had been dropped for their game against West Ham, after the player had made a few mistakes over the last couple of months, and looked fairly tired.
He had come into the starting line-up and been so impressive he was one of the first names on many people’s team sheets – not to mention in their Fantasy Football side, but after his recent form, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte clearly felt he had no choice but to leave the player out and allow him to have a rest.
Some fans were supportive – either because they felt the player himself was simply not doing enough to warrant his position in the side, or just because they felt he was a top player, but one who needed a rest after playing so many games of late – and others were not happy.
Many fans enjoy seeing one of the Chelsea young stars in the side, and will tolerate the mistakes that come from learning the game – and even those who weren’t bothered he was dropped made the same point about the villain of the previous weekend – Victor Moses and his position in the side and wondered just what he had over Antonio Conte to keep him in the line-up.

Because Christensen has been constantly making mistakes…he’s been way too overhyped the past few months and I have no idea why

Give it a rest. Conte is rotating the team. Christensen is suffering from muscle fatigue and needs rest
