'Foolish lineup', 'Are you serious?' – Chelsea fans fume with one Conte team decision v West Brom

Chelsea fans were gutted when Antonio Conte revealed his line-up for the West Brom game and new defender Emerson wasn’t in the starting XI.
The team news was confirmed ahead of the 8pm kick-off on the official Chelsea Twitter page:


Chelsea are in a bit of a rut at the moment, amid reported tensions between Conte and club chiefs.
They’ve been beaten heavily in the their last two Premier League games, losing 4-1 to Watford last time out after Bournemouth shocked them 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.
It’s left them outside of the top four this evening, although they will leapfrog Tottenham into fourth place with a victory tonight.
However, Chelsea fans are concerned that’s going to be tough without Emerson in the side and fans can’t understand why Conte would spend close to £20million for someone he isn’t going to play.
They’re also confused as to why he’s starting with two right-backs when Emerson is a natural left-back and ready to play.
Here are the best reactions after the Chelsea team news was announced:
