Chelsea players celebrating
Chelsea start to the current season of the English premier league has been fantastic so far with the blues occupying the first position in the league table. They have scored 13goals and conceded only once which was against Liverpool in which they fought hard to secure a point in the encounter even with one man down.
No doubt Thomas Tuchel and his players have started well but certainly, they are not the favorite of winning the league. The blues' good form and start may just probably earned them a place in Europe competition and nothing more.
Their game against Aston Villa on Wednesday in which they won luckily on penalties has shown that Chelsea will be rusty this season when their key men will not be available. Unlike Liverpool and Manchester City that had an easy run against their opponents even with their feeder's team, Chelsea struggled to make an impact with just a few men that were rested.
If other teams can study and force Chelsea to sit back just as Aston Villa did, then the blues are likely to finish the campaign without Silver wear.
It is certain that Chelsea will not continue or maintain their form due to either fatigue, fixture congestions, or injuries and by then clubs like Liverpool, Manchester City, and maybe arsenal who always finish well even with injuries will dominate. Last season is evidence the blues struggled to make it to the champions league. Though they won the competition, they were just lucky and not spectacular.
