Chelsea 0 (5) vs. (4) 0 Lyon Pre-Season Review

No goals and thank fully pre-season is over. Sarri named a changed lineup from the one I was expecting to start. Rather than go through a game review I will just skip forward to a player review because there was no real moment to talk about. Bulka started although his defence was made up of Zappacosta, Christensen, Ampadu, and Emerson. Bulka was decent and made … Continue reading Chelsea 0 (5) vs. (4) 0 Lyon Pre-Season Review

Arsenal 1 (6) vs. (5) 1 Chelsea Pre Season Review

Positive signs but not being clinical cost us again! Chelsea started the game with the predicted lineup with the exception being Alonso who kept his place in front of Emerson. The opening minutes were similar to the previous games as the high pressing and passing football created several chances for Chelsea. The goal came in the 5th minute via an Antonio Rudiger header. Hudson-Odoi then … Continue reading Arsenal 1 (6) vs. (5) 1 Chelsea Pre Season Review
