Reasons Chelsea May Struggle to Win Titles this Season

Chelsea FC is voted to be among the most competitive sides in current European football clubs and picked as one of the favourites to win any of the local trophies and provide stiff competition in the Champions League.

However, the Blues journey seems to get tougher despite a promising beginning into the 2021/22 campaign. Though they could heavily challenge any opponents they meet, Chelsea maybe drugged back by the setbacks below if not well dealt with.

Injuries: Week after week, Chelsea's camp release bad news confirming injured stars. Currently, there are some very important stars ruled out of action due to injuries. Mount, Pulisic and James are yet to recover while Kante is in isolation after testing positive for COVID19.

Notably, the nursing players are first team options particularly Mount and Kante. Of this trends keeps poaching Blue's players, then it could be very difficult to make a smooth run.

Squad Rotation: As much as it is good to give each player a chance to play, team rotation is sometimes costing. Players fail to form a solid partnership as there are changes every other time. Unlike Tuchel's unpredictable lineup, Klopp has used similar first 11 and have been very impressive. Perhaps, Tuchel should have his first 11 team more specific.

Focus: For instance Chelsea players totally lacked focus against Manchester City, they were totally confused. City totally dominated the match at Chelsea's own home soil. Not even a single shot on target for the Blues. Chelsea players mindsets should always be positive and set to win. Tuchel should train his men never to loose focus for this will haunt the back.

Creativity: Even after using alot of funds to land new faces, Tuchel's squad still lacks something more, particularly in midfield. Lukaku will only score more goals if there is a reliable ball supplier. Currently no clever passes links midfielders to forwards. Tuchel should build confidence in his team and encourage innovation and breakthroughs to be more threatening.

Squad selection: Currently each team in the EPL can frustrate opponents at anytime. Tuchel must be very careful on which player he plays at which position. He should be very sure on what he does and avoid trying to invent new unfamiliar roles for players.

If Tuchel deals with the above subjects appropriately, then Chelsea will be at a better position to win different titles.
