Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham is apparently giving Chelsea fans signs that he wants to play for the Blues in the future. It is noteworthy to mention that Bellingham admitted that he was a Chelsea supporter while he grew up but stopped once he started playing professional football.
In a recent chat session with fellow compatriot Reece James, Bellingham admitted to watching Chelsea’s recent matches but defended his growing habit by saying that he was only doing that for tactical analysis. He said that he liked how Chelsea’s midfield operated without a number 10 and the triple pivot of Kovacic, Jorginho and Ngolo Kante has provided Chelsea with the firm support both offensively and defensively.
Manchester City boost
Manchester City have confirmed the return of John Stones, Nathan Ake, Aymeric Laporte, and Rodrigo ahead of the highly anticipated showdown against Chelsea tomorrow. This will be a big boost for Pep Guardiola who will be seeking revenge against Thomas Tuchel for the humiliation in the UEFA Champions League final last season.
The match will also be a test for Thomas Tuchel as he seeks to establish Chelsea’s reputation in the book of the greats in European football. The new additions to Guardiola’s squad will add defensive depth and quality, something which is very vital when playing against a strong side such as Chelsea. Chelsea are also quite packed at the defense and Tuchel expects no leakages in his squad against Manchester City tomorrow.
Chelsea fans are reeling on the prospects of Tuchel selecting Trevoh Chalobah to start against Manchester City tomorrow. Fans have said that the youngster should be given the opportunity to start against Manchester City tomorrow so that he can get more experience and confidence. They have also said that the other defenders should be given a little break ahead of next week’s UEFA Champions League showdown.
