The blues have lost for the second time in less than a week, something that is very rare under manager, Thomas Tuchel. However, having had an impressive start to the new season which saw them won the UEFA Super Cup and also top the Premier League table for a week, the blues have now been defeated back to back and currently have their chances of qualifying for the next round of the UCL hanging in the balance.
Undoubtedly, Chelsea has an excellent squad and a top manager in Thomas Tuchel, as such, they should do enough to bounce back. In this article, we will analyze two things they need to do if they want to return to winning ways and challenge for honors again.
Naturally, when a team loses two matches in a row, it is expected that their confidence should be affected and if care is not taken, they might start going down from there. However, it is also at this period that a team can prove its resilience and fight back. In Chelsea's case, they seem to have experienced players who can charge others not to relent as they attempt to return to winning ways, couple with that, below are two other things we believe Chelsea should do that could help them.
1. Switch from 3-4-3 formation to a more attacking formation.
Chelsea is one of the few clubs in the Premier League that possesses some outstanding attacking talent. However, their defense approach to games sometimes usually serve has hindrance to their flow in attack. Often time, Romelu Lukaku is left isolated upfront without having any support, this most times reduced their level of creating chances and scoring goals regularly.
2. Get Mason Mount fit and start him alongside Kai Havertz in attack.
One player Chelsea has been missing this season, who has not been at his brilliant best, is Mason Mount. The young English midfielder was instrumental for the blues last season, but has not been consistent for Chelsea this term. Should Chelsea get him fit and firing again, they should start him alongside Kai Havertz, who is more creative also and can score goals.
