Chelsea’s club world cup game today against Al Hilal would see the Blues kick start their campaign to win the tournament. It’s Chelsea first game of the tournament and one they would be hoping to at least put in a decent performance and win.
The team is just coming off the back of a narrow win over Plymouth in the FA Cup on Saturday so they would need a statement performance here to convince fans that they are indeed the best team at this year’s club world cup tournament.
Al Hilal on the other hand is no piece of cake for the European Champions. The Saudi Arabian club is really good and would be seeking to put the Blues to the sword today.
One man who Chelsea fans of Nigeria origin would be keen to see against their club is Odion Ighalo. The Nigerian striker currently plays for Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia and he scored in their last Club World Cup game. Coming up against Chelsea today, not many would fancy the striker to be the best player on the pitch due to his age but he will most certainly be a big threat to the Blues defence.
Ighalo’s style of play is all about sneaking in behind the defence and nicking a goal so for Chelsea to counter this, they would have to be at their best. The Blues have been known to underestimate their opponents in the past, most recently Plymouth in the FA Cup but against Al Hilal, they shouldn’t do that.
Every team in this tournament have a reason why they are there and if you underestimate any of them, you might have yourself to blame in the end. The same thing goes for opposition attackers, the Chelsea defenders must play against them with the same energy and attention they would use against world-class forwards like Messi, Ronaldo and Lewandowski.
