the 3rd decade of August the information had come that the chief
coach of Chelsea Antonio Conte is going to be dismissed and that he
will be replaced by the coach from Borussia Dortmund Thomas Tuchel.
then Chelsea has won over Everton (2:0) on Stamford home arena. And

fans of Chelsea are lucky as the club from London was smart enough
not to do things like that and that is why the coach-champion of the
last season is still heading the football club. Nevertheless, the
coach wasn’t invited to take part in negotiations, concerning the
transfer of the midfielder from Everton Ross Barkley. And this fact

Chelsea is taking the 6th position. The champion has 6 points after
two victories in three matches over Tottenham (2:1) and Everton

hosts of “King Power” arena are now in absolutely different
situation. Let’s remind that the Foxes have lost twice (away

now they take only the 16th place after the victory over Brighton
(2:0) with 3 points.

3rd round of the League Cup, having won over Sheffield United with
the score (1:4). And secondly, ex-champion had managed to save its
best attacking half-back Algerian Riyad Mahrez. And that is why
will play in the team.
the main intrigue of the battle of two last champions of EPL is in
possible winning of hosts and the opportunity to dismiss Antonio
Conte. But this time, the team doesn’t want to make fools of itself
as it did two years ago during dismissal of José Mourinho.
the first round of season 2015/2016 by concurrence of circumstances
the current coach of MU was dismissed to Chelsea after the defeat of
EPL 2015 champion to Leicester (2:1).
