Chelsea boss Conte: Cesc must do this better...

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says Cesc Fabregas needs to improve defensively.

Fabregas is yet to start a Premier League game this season, making two substitute appearances with Conte opting for Oscar along with Nemanja Matic and N'Golo Kante in midfield.

"Cesc is in my plans and in Chelsea's plans," Conte said.

"Cesc is working very well and improving a lot in many aspects in the defensive situation.

"I have to choose 11 players but if it happens that I decide to play with Cesc, another player will be on the bench and I want to see the same attitude and behaviour of Cesc."
