Reasons Why Chelsea Have Been Failing To Beat Big Teams They Defeated Last Season.

Chelsea have fallen twice to Manchester City this season and are currently unable to replicate their triumph against Real Madrid last season. Chelsea have certainly fallen short of expectations this season, and this piece explains why.

(Last season, Chelsea overcame Manchester City three times and eliminated Real Madrid).

The Reasons Chelsea Is Failing Where They Succeeded Last Seaso

1-Injury to Ben Chilwell:

Ben Chilwell has unquestionably been missed on the field. The English full back began the season in fine form, but was forced to withdraw due to an injury that will keep him out for the balance of the season.

Chilwell had three goals and one assist in just six Premier League outings before to his injury.

As a wing-back, Ben Chilwell gave Chelsea with much-needed pace and creativity. For instance, on Wednesday against Real Madrid, Chelsea were forced to employ Cesar Azpilicueta as a left wing-back because Tuchel does not trust Chilwell's backup Alonso.

"2- Timo Werner is missed by the team:

While most Chelsea supporters will disagree with this statement, it is accurate. Timo Werner was Chelsea's top attacker last season.

He did not score as many goals as expected, but the chances he created aided Chelsea tremendously.

Werner scored 27 goals and added 27 assists for Chelsea last season, despite being labeled a "flop."

Werner's pace, as Pep Guardiola stated prior to last year's Champions League final, enables Chelsea to create more chances and space, which have been lacking this season.

Christian Pulisic was ineffective against Real Madrid's defensive set-up on Wednesday. Los Blacos defended deep, but a player like Werner would have stretched Madrid's defense, creating more room for other attackers and assisting The Blues in creating more clean opportunities.
