Being a supporter of Chelsea at this moment might be rather difficult. Our cherished Blues have recently been going through some difficult times, and it’s high time that we took a deeper look at what’s going wrong and how we can get back on track. Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of the situation and discuss everything from constructive criticism to the exact factors that led to our defeat at the hands of Aston Villa.
First and foremost, Improved decision-making in the Final Third of the Game
One of the most obvious problems that we have seen is poor decision-making in the closing third of the game. There have been times when we have completely dominated the game, but we have been unable to take advantage of the opportunities we have been given. Improving our ability to make decisions in pressure situations is the most important step in putting a stop to this problem. There is a requirement for accuracy and clarity, whether the last pass is being made or the shot is being taken.
Improved Finishing is the Second Suggestion
In recent times, the finishing has been nothing short of unprofessional. The fact that we were unable to score has lost us valuable points. We just couldn’t seem to get the ball in the back of the net. In order to overcome this issue, we need to conduct intensive training sessions that place a strong emphasis on finishing skills. When standing in front of the net, accuracy and calmness might be the deciding factors in the game.
Discipline is the third suggestion I have.
Problems with discipline have been a persistent problem for us, as evidenced by the fact that players like Nicolas Jackson rack up yellow cards like they’re going out of style. This not only puts an unnecessary amount of strain on the team, but it also leads to sanctions, which hurts the team’s overall performance. On the playing field, maintaining discipline is absolutely vital in order to prevent unneeded setbacks.
Trust in the procedure is the fourth suggestion we have.
Remembering the advice that our manager, Mauricio Pochettino, gave us recently, “Trust in the process,” is really necessary in these trying times. Maintaining faith in our ideas and methods, even when things are difficult, may assist enhance morale and overall performance for the team.
Using Players Efficiently, which Is My Fifth Suggestion
Players like Mykhailo Mudryk have already demonstrated flashes of their potential, which is encouraging. We need to put these skills and abilities to good use if we are going to create additional possibilities. The potential for our team to achieve more success on the pitch may be unlocked by bringing out their full potential.
Now, let’s take a closer look at the factors that contributed to our recent defeat at the hands of Aston Villa:
Reason Number One: The First Half was Cut Short
The sudden ending of the first half of the game has the potential to throw off the rhythm of the game and influence our tactics. When things of this nature occur, it is absolutely necessary to adjust fast.
Reason No. 2: Malo Gusto is given a red card
As we saw firsthand, getting a player ejected from the game due to a red card may drastically change the way the game is played. The fact that we will spend part of the game with 10 players puts us at a disadvantage, and this will make it more difficult for us to come out on top.
Reason No. 3: Lost or Unrealized Opportunities
When we had the game well in hand, Chelsea passed up a number of excellent scoring opportunities. This failure to capitalise on possibilities resulted in a significant financial loss.
Reason No. 4: A Dearth of Goal Scoring Opportunities
Our troubles in goal scoring are made abundantly obvious by the fact that we have scored only five times in six league games. Strikers such as Nicolas Jackson need to enhance their game and develop their finishing ability in order to be successful.
Reason No. 5: Problems with the Discipline
The problem of players, particularly crucial players, receiving yellow cards at excessive rates has not been resolved. It is essential for our group to improve its discipline on the pitch in order to prevent sanctions, which are detrimental to the team’s performance.
In conclusion, it is without a doubt a difficult time for Chelsea, but we have the ability and the capacity to make it through this difficult patch. We can get back to our winning ways if we put more of an emphasis on making better decisions, finishing plays, maintaining discipline, having faith in our strategies, and making efficient use of our players. Keep in mind that football is an unpredictable sport, and all it takes is some smart tweaks for our Blues to go back on track and win. Maintain your optimism, and raise the Blue flag as high as you can!
