Premier League

Opinion: Why Chelsea is better than their opponents in possession.

Premier League football is the game, while Chelsea is the club. Chelsea is the European champion and has been performing quite well under Thomas Tuchel in recent months. Tuchel was voted the best coach in the UEFA Champions League for the 2014-15 season by his peers. In addition, the Blues have won the Super Cup for the second time in the team's historical record. During this season's English Premier League, the Blues have maintained their excellent run and are currently in first place as the team prepares for the international break. 

Chelsea is known to have made extensive use of the final three, allowing soft outfielders more space to train. You will observe, in particular, that the fullbacks shoot more than three players before releasing a pass that reaches an unmarked soft field on the other side. When the blues lose the ball to their opponents, they employ their offensive power to harass the ball back to them. It made the difference between Manchester City, who generally attack and defend as a unit, and the rest of the competition. 

Nevertheless, following the international break, we should be able to see what Chelsea can achieve as European champions against a team that has surprised several major opponents, like Liverpool, West Ham United and Arsenal. According to the majority of supporters, Brentford is becoming as the intimidating opponent that most clubs would rather avoid. Yes, the Blues were in terrific shape, but Brentford was also crazy, and Chelsea players should be quite ecstatic about their performance. Because Thiago Silva is expected to be absent, Andrew Christensen will serve as the team's captain.
