FA Cup

The Biggest Mistake Committed By Graham Potter That Costed Chelsea In Today's Match

Chelsea made a trip to the Etihad stadium to take on Manchester City in the FA cup third round, hoping to avenge their calamitous 1-0 loss to Pep Gurdiola's side in the Premeir league a few fortnights ago.

However things did not go their way as a dominant Citizen's outfit put 3 goals past the Blues in the opening half, with Riyad Mahrez, Julian Alvarez & Phil Foden all getting in the scoresheet.

Riyad Mahrez converted a spot kick after Koulibaly fouled Foden in the box in the 85th minute, to seal a convincing 4-0 triumph for Manchester city who will now face the winner between Premeir league leaders Arsenal & Oxford in the FA cup 4th round encounter.

In that match, Chelsea boss Graham Potter made a huge blunder by starting an inexperienced back line, as he opted to deploy 19 year old Bashir Humphreys in the centre back position & 18 year old Lewis Hall in the left back role. The duo were not able to stop the fierce attack's launched by experienced city strikers including Riyad Mahrez who scored a fabulous freekick to open the scoring & they were lucky not to have conceded more goals.
