Chelsea have welcomed West Bromwich Albion at Stamford bridge in an early Saturday match. This is after an international break at which Chelsea are hoping to continue with Thomas Tuchel unbeaten run to extend it to fifteen games. They have drawn four and won ten of their last games under Tuchel's coaching.
The game started today with Chelsea heading with a 3-4-2-1 formation while West Bromwich Albion had 5-4-1 formation. The game was dominated by Chelsea which led them to score the first goal at twenty seventh minute. Marcos Alonso took a mid range free kick and his beautiful strike only rattled the right post but luckily Christian Pulisic was present and he fired the rebound into the middle of the goal. Just before thirty minutes of the game, Thiago Silva got a second yellow card which automatically sent him off pitch. This gave the West Bromwich chance to show their game and just before the half time Matheus Pereira of West Bromwich Albion butted two goals at Chelsea's goal. The match ended with 1-2 in favor of west Bromwich Albion at the break.
Angry Chelsea fans blame Jorginho for causing the two yellow card on Thiago Silva with his back passes. They also say that Mason Mount should be brought in as Bgolo Kante is absent so that he can solidify the midfiel.
Here are some of their reactions.
Prince J Clark:Unnecessary pressure create by Jorginho that led to the red card, honestly if Chelsea looses this match today it obvious the team did a "Give away" in the detriment of Tactician Thomas Tuchelsea.
Very disappointing and unacceptable performance from this players today maybe the international break has affected their mentality. I miss Kante, and Mount.
Ben Agyarkwa:THE WISE ONE: We need Mount to come and sure up the midfield in the absence of Kante. We need his hardwork now. Jorgi must come out for him. He has played nothing this afternoon. Alonso should also come out for Chilwell as this game is no longer for him. Pulisic should play through the Middle behind Werner. Kova should stay put as the DM and Mount shoud be the box-box. He should be disciplined to play this role and allow Pulisic to do his. That's the only way i see us coming back to win.
