Chelsea were nowhere to be found as the opponent controlled the entire game. The blues were diminished beyond repair as Manchester city dominated the play. The day for chelsea was superb in the first half and they didn't allow any short on target from the visitors who seemed to have come for a deep revenge.
Chelsea remained at the thirty percentage of the ball possession with a number of players struggling to perform. Pep Quordiola tactics against tuchel seemed to work very well this time round and the team for sure deserved a win. The blues have been known to use the wings backs of which today Marcus alonso was very poor. Infact it were Ben chiwel things could have worked perfectly for the home team. Alonso was completely outdone by the high pressuring city boys every time they lost the ball.
The game was full of speed and the tactical mentality of pep quordiola of pressing high was. quite good and master class. Pep boys were.morr than five forming a Pentagon shape sorrounding the ball every time they losed to the opponent. This gave the blues no chance to get into the mildfield or even arrange themselves. City were very quick in ball recovery and the forward were greatly involved in ball recovery which made easier for the defence.
