However, Bissouma could find himself sidelined once again if he receives two more bookings. The former Brighton playmaker has had to be patient when waiting for opportunities in north London, though his recent performances could see him work his way into Conte’s plans more permanently.
Speaking about how his side have performed this season, Conte said: “I think compared to last season, you can see more stability in this team. In every game, we go into the pitch with the will, with the desire that there is the possibility to get three points and win the game.
“Then it can happen in one game, like Arsenal, that you can lose but in every game, I think my players feel the possibility to try to fight to get three points. This has to be our target in every game to make difficult the life of our opponent.”
