Chelsea Problem Highlighted as Their Uneven Run Continues in 1-0 Defeat

Chelsea's unlucky skid continues as they are humiliated 1-0 by Dinamo Zagreb. Their first-half play was less than impressive, as they conceded an early goal that proved decisive.

Despite fielding a strong lineup that included newcomers Aubameyang and Wesley Fofana, the Blues were unable to make a big impact.

The blues' attack was blunt, and their defensive line was fragile, allowing Dinamo to counter-attack. Chelsea's major issue has been conceding goals on counterattacks.

Dinamo recognized this issue and used it to grab the lead in the first half. Chelsea's body language in the first half encouraged the Croatians to believe they could outplay them.

However, in the second half, they tweaked their approach and made substitutions that assisted them in re-organizing the game. With the changes, there was some improvement, and Chelsea could have tied the game, but Aubameyang's debut goal was called offside.

The blues had the majority of the possession, but Dinamo filled their backline with bodies to prevent them from creating chances and scoring. The Blues stayed high in attacking and James forced a double save from a spectacular strike. Three wasn't much time for and Chelsea had to accept the humiliation.
