Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has indicated his side could look to do business in the January transfer window.
The Blues have been in sensational form over the past few months and have won 13 Premier League games in a row following their 4-2 success over Stoke City. There have been fears their form could suffer should players such as Diego Costa or Eden Hazard suffer injuries in the second half of the season.
Conte confirms there are some positions in the squad that might be strengthened this month if the right solutons are available. #CFC

Conte confirmed his side could look to sign players in January should the right players be available. Chelsea have been linked with moves for Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal and Wolfsburg left-back Ricardo Rodriguez, but Conte declined to discuss his transfer targets when asked.
“I answer these questions always in the same way,” Conte said, as quoted by Metro.
“I don’t like to speak about players that are playing with other teams.
“I think this this is out of respect for players and other clubs.”
N’Golo Kante has impressed ever since his summer move from Leicester in the summer, while Cesc Fabregas has been reliable whenever called upon, despite falling behind the likes of Kante and Nemanja Matic in the midfield pecking order.
Chelsea will hope to continue their impressive winning streak when they take on Tottenham on Wednesday. They are currently five points ahead of second place Liverpool, who drew 2-2 against Sunderland on Monday. Fellow title rivals Arsenal take on Bournemouth on Tuesday, while Manchester United also closed the gap on the top four thanks to their win against West Ham.
