The Serbian was immense at the end of the previous season but this season, his start has been a bit shaky. He has not played a role in the last two league games for the side which ended in victory and with Victor Moses turning out to be fruitful in a wing-back role, Ivanovic will find it hard to get a place in the side this season. At 32, he may not have too many years of Premier League left in him and he might be the first man that Conte let go in January. He has been decent in his time for the club but his time might be up now.
John Obi Mikel:
The midfielder is yet to play a minute of the Premier League this season and it does not look like Antonio Conte has him in his plans for the club this campaign. The likes of N Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic have been trusted with the midfield duties this season and Mikel has not been able to get a single appearance in the league. He is still a decent player who can provide cover for the first team players but Conte has not looked like using him in any of the games this campaign and may decide to let him leave in January. There will be no shortage of clubs who will want the experienced international who might not be at the Bridge come the end of the season.
