Antonio Conte has told his Chelsea stars to clean up their act.
The Chelsea boss has spoken to his players after seeing four of them sent off in their last three competitive games. Last season the club did not have a single player sent off in the Premier League.
Victor Moses was dismissed in their FA Cup defeat to Arsenal in May. Pedro was sent off in their Community Shield defeat to the Gunners and both Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas saw red in their shock defeat to Burnley on Saturday.
Former captain John Terry was the last Chelsea player to be dismissed in the League, against Sunderland in May 2016.
Conte conducted an inquest with his squad on Monday. He was particularly annoyed by Fabregas’ red as he had warned his players at half time not to fall foul of referee Craig Pawson after Cahill’s first-half exit.
The champions now have their squad stretched with Eden Hazard and Tiemoue Bakayoko both injured.
Moses is due back for Sunday’s game against Spurs while Pedro is also expected to recover from an ankle injury to face last season’s runners-up.
