The English Premier League continues today as Manchester City cruised to a 1:0 win over the European Champions at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea recorded their first defeat in the Premier League this season after an impressive Premier League campaign. Pep Guardiola's Manchester City dominated the whole game which proved that their winning was well deserved. A strike from Gabriel Jesus at the 53rd minute of the match stole the three points from Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea.
Chelsea's manager made two wrong decisions that contributed to his defeat and this article states those decisions.
1. Starting Marcus Alonso ahead of Ben Chilwell:
Although Ben Chilwell has not been getting enough playing time this season, his performance in the EFL match was exceptional and should have started ahead of Marcus Alonso. The decision to start Alonso was very wrong as he easily loses the ball, making Man City's players dominate the game. Alonso had one of his poor performances today as Ben Chilwell could have done better if he started in today's match.
One could understand that Marcus Alonso is very slow in attack, making City's match unfavorable for him, Ben Chilwell could have been a better option if Thomas Tuchel made the right decision.
2 Playing Timo Werner with Romelu Lukaku:
The decision to start both Werner and Lukaku in today's match was wrong as Thomas Tuchel could have done the testing when he plays a weaker club. The combination of both attackers didn't contribute much to Chelsea's success as Kai Havertz's intelligence could have been much better if he began the match.
I believe the head coach will take note of these two wrong decisions in subsequent matches to continue in his winning ways. Use the comment section to drop your opinions.
