SKY REMAINS BLUE MATCH REVIEW: BLUES REMAIN IN THE GROOVE WHIP SOUTHAMPTON AWAY
To be a great tactician or manager you must be able to identify the problems facing your team and employ all avenues possible to check those problems to yield positive results within a given period of time or else the exit door will be thrown open for you to walk out..We can conveniently assert now that Chelsea manager Antonio Conte identified the inherent problems in his back four and has now rectified the issue both tactically and otherwise..
No one would have thought that David Luis will be played as the centre half in a 3-4-3 formation considering the fact that he’s at times carried away going forward but he has earned the trust of the manager and has kept his cool on his return to Stamford bridge.Chelsea have now gone unbeaten in four successive premiership games scoring 11 goals and conceeding none..now that is not an easy task.
This reality and an away trip to Southampton would have on paper posed a big threat to Conte’s men but they controlled the game from start as Eden Hazard put Chelsea in front in just six minutes into the game making it three goals in three games for the Belgian after hard working Victor Moses who has really improved defensively set him up from the right side after a quick attacking play that started from the left..the home team had more ball possession as they tried to break the Chelsea defence line,a rather uneasy task these days as Chelsea’s man marking pattern as against the zonal marking has kept that tightness at the back.After the break,Southampton came pushing for an equaliser but it was Chelsea who got their second of the evening via Diego Costa..a fantastic curler from the edge of the box..he has now scored 8 goals making him top scorer in the league so far..Antonio Conte has found the perfect rhythm to his Chelsea stint and many believe the Italian can make a statement this season if he keeps it this way..the players are playing with so much zeal and zest and just seeing Hazard dancing and smiling before the 2nd half started goes to tell you that the bridge is solid..2-0 it ended as Chelsea are now fourth on the log with just a point adrift the top three teams.
My koboko dey holiday now because nobody to flogg for now..all the players kpef.
we are the BLUESSSSSS!! the sky can not change it’s colour!
