2 Mistakes Chelsea's Manager Made In Yesterday's Match Despite His Win At Brentford

Chelsea Football Club continued their winning streak after they cruised to a 1:0 defeat at the Brentford Community Stadium. Chelsea Football Club has been exceptional in the English Premier League, hoping to win the title this season after winning the UFEA Champions League and Super Cup last season.

Chelsea dominated Brentford in the first 45th minutes of the match and a crucial goal from Chelsea's Ben Chilwell at the last minute of the first half secured the three points for Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea. A second-half deadlock kept Brentford frustrated as their efforts to get an equalizing goal proved abortive.

Chelsea's manager made two mistakes in yesterday's match that could have cost him the three points and this article states those two mistakes.

1. Substituting Mateo Kovacic in the second half:

Chelsea's midfielder, Mateo Kovacic entered into the match on a high note, controlling and managing Chelsea's midfield in the first 45 minutes of the match. Removing him in the 65th minute was a mistake made by Thomas Tuchel as his removal destabilize Chelsea's midfield, allowing their opponent to penetrate their defensive line. All thanks to the wood wall and Edouard Mendy for their wonderful saves to deny Brentford an Equalizer after Kovacic was substituted.

2. Bringing in Kai Havertz

Another mistake the head coach made was bringing out Kai Havertz in the second half. Although Lukaku looks tired in the second half, he plays a better role in the attacking force as he suppresses Brentford's defensive line with his stamina and strength. Kai Havertz is a bit slow and was not fit to play in yesterday's match against Brentford. This mistake might have cost the head coach but he managed to get a win.

Thomas Tuchel should avoid making wrong decisions in his games if he wants to win the EPL title this season as his next five fixtures might give him an edge to the title. Use the comment section to share your thoughts.
