Arsenal legend Wright: Conte MUST play Cesc

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has rapped Chelsea boss Antonio Conte over his treatment of Cesc Fabregas.

The Spaniard scored twice in last night's 4-2 EFL Cup win at Leicester to press home his claims for a place in the first team.

He told The Sun Goals Podcast: "I know that Conte's Italian and his natural instincts are to make sure that the defence is tight and that you can't break his teams down, fine.

"But when you've got someone like Kante who can do the work of two men, you don't need Kante and Matic at home when you are Chelsea who are going for the Premier League.

"You can't play with two holding midfielders when you've got Cesc Fabregas sitting on the bench.

"He creates chances, you've got to play him."
