Why Chelsea may be difficult to defeat this season

Chelsea maintained their incredible run of form in game week nine of the English Premier League after they trashed Norwich City 7-0.

In this article, we will be examining why Chelsea might be difficult to defeat this season.

1. Defensive organization: the defenders are all performing excellently, as the team's defensive record and tactic is impressive. The team has conceded just three goals, which is an impressive feat considering how competitive the EPL is. Furthermore, Eduardo Mendy's performance has been stunning this season as he once again kept a clean sheet, and he also made a remarkable save.

The beautiful thing about this particular save is that he saved the ball as if he was a defender. This is something that you rarely see from goalkeepers. What I am trying to bring out in essence is that if the defence, in general, can maintain their consistency and solidity, the team will be difficult to penetrate, hence making them a tough side to defeat. For example, Manchester United is struggling because their defence is disorganized. So, defensive organization is one of the key strategies of a team's success.

2. Individual brilliance: this point is vital because the team played without a natural striker today, and they trashed their opponents. A thing to take note of is that some goals were scored by players like Chilwell and James, who are defenders. This clearly shows that the team can even succeed when a key player is unavailable.

In conclusion, the supporters expect the players to maintain their form and consistency as they strive to lift the EPL title this season.
