• Chelsea Still finding it hard to get a win despite Squad Overhaul
  • Are Owners Still Right To Back Graham Potter ?

West Ham 1-1 Chelsea

In a game that Chelsea dominated possession wise, the blues still found it difficult to penetrate what is becoming a theme against them; a low block. The same tactic Fulham used against the blues last week to get a draw at Stamford Bridge.

The question is, even after investing over $600 million, why is it still so easy to defend against Chelsea? West Ham were out-played in midfield, with most of the work done by the impressive Enzo Fernández, who also provided the assist for João Félix’s goal. Chelsea should have blown The Hammers away with the amount of control they had, especially in the first half. The second half was not as impressive, with The Blues looking lost without an alternative plan for most of the half.

Graham Potter’s side have now recorded only 2 Premier League wins in their last 13, and the pressure continues to mount on the former Brighton manager. Despite the owners backing him, Potter needs to win matches to convince his new players to believe in the Chelsea project on the pitch of play. Fulham and West Ham were two perfect opportunities, but Chelsea still failed.

New Owners Still Back Graham Potter

There have been talks of Chelsea looking to other managers potentially if positive results continues to elude Graham Potter. Some reports mentioned names like Hansi Flick and Luis Enrique, but the new owners want to judge managers yearly instead of the firing culture Chelsea had under Roman Abramovich.

The new players have shown incredible signs of superior technical abilities on the ball, and they are beginning to settle into the demands of the toughest league in World Football. Chelsea travel to Dortmund for the start of their UCL round of 16 double header on Wednesday, and maybe a positive result in Germany will be all the boost Chelsea need to start firing in the Premier League.
