Chelsea beat Atletico Madrid in the Champions League this week and the 1-0 success implies the Premier League side have figured out how to get that all-essential away objective.
The Blues had five shots on track during the match and the one that went into the rear of the net was a great overhead volley from Olivier Giroud. The objective was a demonstration of individual splendor however as per previous Chelsea player Frank Leboeuf, the Blues may battle to keep Atletico Madrid under control in the subsequent leg.
“As usual, there’s question marks over the thing they will do in the last 30 yards,” Frank Leboeuf said on ESPN.
This is on the grounds that more often than not, the four players who have the ball are (Cesar) Azpilicueta, Jorginho, (Mateo) Kovacic and Marcos Alonso.
They don’t move or make an uneven second for the rivals. It’s the reason they don’t make anything. Furthermore, it’s the reason I’m somewhat stressed for the subsequent leg.
Mount will not be there for the subsequent leg. Which will be an issue. The one in particular who can make something right now for Chelsea, with the exception of something extraordinary from Giroud, is Mount.”
Aside from Mason Mount, Jorginho is likewise suspended for the subsequent leg meaning N’Golo Kante will play in the cautious midfielder’s job. Also, to the extent the shortfall of Mason Mount is concerned, Kai Havertz should come into the side because of the England worldwide’s suspension.
Havertz has the ability to cut open a group like Atletico Madrid yet the German worldwide has been a lemon so far this season and we question if Thomas Tuchel will lay his full confidence in him.
With Mount, precluded, we are bound to see Christian Pulisic come into the firing line-up for the second leg instead of summer marking Kai Havertz.
