Boss refuses to rest stars
Roberto Di Matteo says he will not rest anyone for the Atletico Madrid clash as he is taking the Super Cup clash 'very seriously'.
The Blues have got their Premier League campaign off to the perfect start with three victories and it was thought Friday's trip to Monaco would be seen as a distraction more than anything. The annual competition has sometimes been derided but Di Matteo wants to add another piece of silverware to the FA Cup and Champions League successes he has already masterminded during his short tenure as Chelsea boss. The Italian has no intention of leaving any key player out of the squad although he is likely to make a couple of changes to the starting eleven that beat Newcastle 2-0. "We are happy we are going into the Super Cup final with three wins and everybody fit and hopefully we can win another international trophy for this football club," the Italian said. "I will take it very seriously. It is not a friendly. It is a European trophy that we want to win. I will not be resting people."
