Chelsea: Potter’s Big Rival After BVB Win, Pulisic’s Bad Luck, and Hazard’s Return to Club

Chelsea will be aiming to defeat BVB in the Champions League in hopes of advancing to the next round of the competitions. The Blues currently trail by a goal in the cup tie but Graham Potter is more than confident that the result could be turned upside down during the mid-week fixture. He believes that if the players maintain a winning mentality throughout the game, the deficit can easily be overturned.

“Winning the Champions League tie against BVB will do a lot of good in boosting the player's confidence. They have been working tirelessly in recent weeks to get back to their best and if we mange to advance to the next stage, I believe that will be one step forward in our long term journey. There is still a lot to be done but a win is definitely something we need at the moment,” remarked the manager.

The Champions League ties were meant to be Pulisic’s platform to build on his reputation as a lethal attacking force. Given that BVB is his former club, it would have been a match made in heaven if he were to help Chelsea sink down the Bundesliga giants. Such a feat would have ranked him high in the transfer list of a number of clubs. However, he is currently injured but will soon recover fully.

My opinion

The rumors regarding Eden Hazard returning to Chelsea have finally been thrown out the window. The Belgian is expected to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season because Vinicius Jr has been promised the iconic #7 shirt that is currently owned by Hazard. No club has shown interest in the winger because he is prone to injury but has been invited by the Belgian FA for a coaching staff position.

Meanwhile, I think that Mudryk ought to pull up his socks if he wants to have a successful career at Chelsea. His attitude and body language in the pitch has been questioned by many and if this goes on for a while longer, he could be permanently dropped for the whole this season. He has potential of doing great things for a big club like Chelsea.
