Chelsea manager Antonio Conte reportedly launched a furious tirade at his players after they suffered a shock defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The reigning Premier League champions took on a side that had lost all seven of their games and had not mustered a single goal during that time.
According to The Telegraph, after the final whistle Conte verbally ripped apart his players in the dressing room, warning them that they will not taste success this season if they do not work harder on the pitch.
The intense training sessions, as well as additional games due to Chelsea being involved in all four competitions, is believed to be contributing to the growing injury list.
Next up for the Blues is a Champions League Group C match against Roma at Stamford Bridge.
