Chelsea had a fabulous boost in their UEFA Champions League quest for this season, after an emphatic 4-0 win over their opponents for the day Krasnodar. The fixture must have taught Chelsea’s manager Frank Lampard a lot of things, especially after his squad performed so beautifully in the second half.
Chelsea opened scoring through Hudson Odoi in the first half, and in the second a relentless effort from Werner, Ziyech and Pulisic saw the London club put aside Krasnodar in the most brutal way. The fixture did not come without lessons for the blues side, as they made several costly mistakes in the first half that almost led to their opponent scoring.
This article is focused on discussing 2 key lessons learnt from the 4-0 win Chelsea enjoyed over Krasnodar in the UCL group stage match on Wednesday the 28th of October 2020.
1) Let Timo Werner Take All Of Chelsea’s Penalties:
Ever since his arrival at Chelsea, young striker Timo Werner has been relentless in his attacking qualities as he has won over 4 penalties for the blues both in domestic competitions and across Europe. However, of all these penalties won the German striker had not taken any, as the blues manager had preferred Jorginho over him. Jorginho has however, showed how unreliable he can be with spot-kicks, as he missed one in the first half against Krasnodar. Werner scored a penalty in the second half, and his technique is far more superior to Jorginho’s so he should be the number one spot kick taker from now on.
2) Edouard Mendy Is First Choice Goalkeeper:
Mendy had any solid performance in goal for the blues, and this would make it even more impossible for him to be dropped as the season progresses. Lampard’s initial first choice goalkeeper was Kepa, but his poor form at the start of the season saw them bring in the former Rennes man who has come in to show how massive he can be in the Chelsea’s goal. He was so good at claiming crosses, as well as making decisive saves in the game against Krasnodar even keeping a clean sheet for the 4th consecutive time in his Chelsea career.
It is a decent win for Chelsea, it was impressive enough for their owner Roman Abramovich to stand and cheer after the full time whistle, as he attended the match in his own home country. The next challenge for Chelsea would be to conquer Burnley in the premier league and take their 9 point tally to 12 in a chance to compete for a top four finish this season. What do you make of the Chelsea’s performance of tonight?
