Exclusive: Roman Abramovich holds crisis talks with Chelsea officials after Liverpool loss

Those flaws had been disguised by a good start to the season but in their first real test of the campaign, Chelsea were outplayed by Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Conte is certain to be given funds in January to strengthen his squad – after players he had singled out in the summer, including Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly and Roma’s Alessio Romagnoli, as well as strikers Romelu Lukaku of Everton and Alvato Morata of Real Madrid, proved to be out of reach.

Chelsea brought in N’Golo Kante, Michy Batshuayi, David Luiz and Marcos Alonso before the transfer window but there are concerns now that influx was not enough to properly improve a team that finished 10th in the table last year.
