Chelsea were hammered 1-0 by Dinamo Zagreb in their opening UEFFA champions league match. Chelsea were the favourites in that match but Dinamo Zagreb ended up turning the table. Here are mistakes that Chelsea committed to lose in today's match.
1. Benching Best Players
It seems Chelsea's coach Thomas Tuchel underestimated Dinamo Zagreb and decided to bench some of his best players. Thiago Silva is one of the best defender whom Thomas Tuchel left out replacing him with the new signee Wesley Fofana who was not able to withstand the counter attack by Dinamo Zagreb strikers.
2. Allowing an early goal
Chelsea allowed Dinamo Zagreb to score an early goal which gave them confidence to push for a brace and also strengthened their defense.
3. Playing players out of their positions
Thomas Tuchel made some of the players to play out of their positions as he tried to implement the 3-4-2-1 formation. Fofana played center back yet he is used of playing right back making it difficult to withstand the pressure.
