It was long and the blues seemed to be stronger in each match of the campaign till yesterday when they faced the premier league holders, Manchester city. The match was among the early kick-offs of the day. The blues played a more defensive game as the started with their three world class central mid-fielders (Kante, jorghino, Kovacic ) for the first time since the German took over earlier this year, while on the other hand the Citizens played a more attacking football which kept the blues defense most time at their box, the pressure from city attacking led to a goal after a shot from Gabriel Jesus deflected Jorghino to back of the net.
The blues seemed to jump back after a goal from Lukaku was denied by VAR following the claim of Kai, who had stepped in as a substitute of Kante , was offside while assisting.
Despite of all the efforts of Mendy, Thiago Silva and Christensen which caught the eyes of the blues family and football fans, Loftus-Cheek made the biggest statement for the 14 minutes he was at the pitch, He came in as a substitute of Jorghino. He became the heart of everything positive in the midfield alongside Kovacic, the blues nearly scored after his inclusion in the playing players. Many (blues)fans are demanding for his number and playing time especially after shinning in the mid-week clash against Aston Villa and providing outstanding performance against the Citizens. (93.3%) of his passes were accurate.
Indeed, the return of Loftus-cheek back to his form is good news to blues family as it gives more options in the midfield after the signing of Saul on loan. The debut of Malang Sarr alongside of Chalobah should be rejoiced and received well by the blues fans(Opinion).
Chelsea look forward to meet Juventus in the Champions league in three days while City travel to Paris to face PSG in two days.
