Chelsea played out a disappointing 1-1 draw against Man Utd at Stamford Bridge last night.
It’s now up to eight games that Chelsea have failed to record a win against Man Utd and the result is more disappointing from a Chelsea perspective, in that the game was always there for the taking for the Blues.
Chelsea dominated the entire first half but fell behind in the second half after Jadon Sancho’s goal following a Jorginho error but the Italian redeemed himself with a penalty to restore parity for Chelsea.
This article tends to look at three of Chelsea’s worst performers on the night.
After a string of impressive performances as a left winger, starting against Man Utd seemed well deserved for Hudson-Odoi but on a personal note there were some reservations given that in a game of that magnitude, Chelsea needed better finishers and that fear came to pass when Hudson-Odoi missed what was probably Chelsea’s best chance very in the game.
His decision making constantly let him down and if Chelsea had a better finisher in Hudson-Odoi’s stead they’d have easily been up at halftime and Sancho’s goal could have been at worst an equalizer.
The Spaniard really made the Chelsea fans miss Chilwell last night. Alonso filled in at left wing-back for the injured Ben Chilwell but did not put in a nice shift at all.
He showed a lot of rustiness last night and in consequence slowed down a lot of Chelsea attacks with poor first touches and unnecessary back passes. Was involved the big chance Hudson-Odoi missed though.
Starting in place of the injured N’golo Kanté last night, the English midfielder struggled all through the game.
He was very much complacent in midfield and lost possession many times due to poor decision making. There were times where he could have done better by shooting on goal or passing the ball rather than trying to maraud his way past a sea of red shirts.
