The Blues supporters were utterly shocked after the club lost 1-0 to Juventus in the group stage of the UEFA Champions league. A lot of Chelsea fans expect Thomas Tuchel to guide the team to another UEFA Champions league win only for the Old lady to secure three points over the blues.
Federico Chiesa scored a wonderful goal for the Old lady in the 46th minute of the game after being assisted by Bernardeschi.
Romelu Lukaku was among the Chelsea squad that faced Juventus. Since Lukaku played in the Serie A before joining Chelsea, the Belgian striker was expected to score at least one goal against Juventus but he was very poor in form throughout the whole game. Lukaku played 4 shots with only one on target against Szczesny. The Juventus Goalkeeper was not tested enough by the Blues attackers since only one shot was on target against him.
Juventus Star players including Cuadrado, Danilo, Sandro, Rabiot, Bernardeschi, Locatelli and Chiesa were highly impressive against Chelsea. Alvaro Morata and Dybala were the two Juventus Star players that were absent but the Old lady still managed to defeat the Blues without them.
Chelsea featured some of their best players including Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kovacic and Kai Havertz. The Blues dominated the game but lack creativity and final pass which was the main role assigned to both Hakim Ziyech and Kai Havertz.
Three players were absent during Chelsea's clash against Juventus and their presence would have changed the tide of the game.
N'golo Kante tested positive for Covid-19 and he was ruled out of their clash. Kante would have made a huge impact to the match since he's often considered one of the best defensive midfielder in the world.
Reece James was also unavailable for Chelsea after sustaining an injury during their match against Manchester City in the premier league. Reece James would have been a great addition to the Chelsea squad during their match against Juventus.Mason Mount is currently out on injury and was also unavailable during Chelsea's clash against Juventus.
