Chelsea’s offensive power is bleak.
Football statistics media ‘Transfer Markt’ compared the offensive power of both teams ahead of the league match between Chelsea and Manchester City on the 6th (hereinafter referred to as Korean time).
However, the comparison target was the team and the players. Chelsea had scored 20 goals in 16 league games before meeting Manchester City, with City’s Erling Haaland scoring 21 goals in 15 games. Even if all the Chelsea players were combined, they could not overcome one Haaland. 메이저사이트
It is understandable if Chelsea is a team with a large power gap with Man City, but Chelsea is a club that overcame Man City and reached the top of Europe in the 2020-21 season alone. Even with the return of a new owner and the sack of manager Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea are having a difficult season this season.
As ‘Transfer Markt’ feared, Chelsea lost 0-1 to Manchester City in the 19th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 6th. With this defeat, Chelsea remained in 10th place in the league with 7 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses (25 points).
They have only 1 win in their last 8 league matches. Criticism of director Porter is pouring in. The most criticized part of Coach Porter’s football is scoring, again. Porter’s tactical problems may be a problem, but the performance of individual players is also a problem.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang quickly lost the scoring ability he regained during his time at Barcelona. Kai Havertz is clearly showing the limits of not being an authentic striker. Prospect Armando Broya is unlikely to return this season due to a cruciate ligament rupture.
Chelsea are at the top of the league when it comes to defense. With 19 goals from 17 games, they are in fourth place with the least goals. On the other hand, their attack power is horrendous. He scored only 20 goals in 17 league games, and is 12th in league scoring. The defense is good, but they can’t score goals, so they can’t win.
Line 2 is serious. Mason Mount, Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic are out with injuries ahead of the Manchester City match. Hakim Ziyech has not been able to use the 2022 World Cup in Qatar as an opportunity to turn things around. There are no resources available to replace them.
