CHE 6-1 PETERB: 2 Things I Learned From Chelsea Pre-season Game Today
The Thomas Tuchel's side aren't slowing down in preparing ahead of next season, as they comfortably trashed Peterborough (6-1) today in their first pre-season game. Obviously, the Blues will definitely go far in all competitions next campaign.
Of course, the game was very interesting with the formation of 3-4-2-1. Hakim Ziyech bagged a hat-trick (3 goals) while Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Armando Borja registered 1 goal each. Aside from that, both Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy were off, as Jamie Cumming and Lucas Bergstrom started.
Meanwhile, there are two things I learned from the pre-season clash, especially when Chelsea will be participating in many competitions in the 2021-2022 campaign. Without a doubt, the German manager is the ideal coach to take the club to the next level.
Apparently, the Blues' squad is full of several brilliant and experienced players, so that was why they could put 6 goals past Peterborough in the absence of Timo Werner, N'Golo Kante, Kai Havertz, Mason Mount and others. Definitely, the West London club is ready to challenge Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool in the league.
Here are the two things I learnt:
First off, Tammy Abraham and Armando Borja are enough for Chelsea, if they can not bring Erling Haaland to Stamford Bridge this summer transfer window. It's crystal clear that the German gaffer doesn't rate the Englishman's ability, but he's capable of upgrading the team's frontline and always step up to help the squad result. The club can not avoid losing Abraham when Olivier Giroud has already joined AC Milan on a permanent deal. As a result, the two central-forwards have the potential to dazzle flawlessly in the front, while the German footballer plays from the left-wing. Actually, most fans expect the young striker to pull off an amazing display, and his statistics today revealed that he will make it to the first-team.
Second off, Hakim Ziyech is gradually settling down in England, having seen his performance against Peterborough today. The Moroccan wizard registered 3 brilliant goals in the second-half, and he literally outplayed all his teammates during the match. Without being sentimental, Ziyech could be Chelsea's key player in the 2021-2022 season, most particularly in the UEFA Super Cup, Club World Cup and Champions League. Obviously, the 3-4-2-1 is good for him, because it allows him to dazzle left and right on the pitch. Since Thomas Tuchel is planning to reinforce his attack setup, then he could revolve his frontline around the Morocco international. He has the abilities and capabilities to turn things around in the front, with his creativity.
Simply put, as Chelsea mercilessly trashed Peterborough in 6-1 today, as regards their first pre-season showdown. I learned that Hakim Ziyech could be the Blues' key player next season, with his massive 3 goals in the second-half against the Posh. While, Tammy Abraham and Armando Borja have the capability to boost the team's performance in all competitions, if they fail to get Haaland's signature this summer.
How do you see Chelsea's performance today?
