Chelsea continued their quest for their first English premier league trophy under Thomas Tuchel after returning from the international break on top of the table. Be it as it may, Chelsea played their 8th game of the season against the newly promoted side, Brentford. Brentford are yet to lose their match against any top team in the Premier league.
However, Chelsea began the game with the intention of winning and they were obviously the better side. Thomas Tuchel made a very huge alteration to that squad in preparation to for their UEFA Champions league game against Malmo FF. The likes of Malang Sarr, Andreas Christensen and Trevoh Chalobah formed the 3-man defence. This defense did a really great job in stopping Brentford's pacy attack.
The game ended in a 1-0 win for the blues, courtesy of a Ben Chilwell rocket. Although Lukaku and Werner tried so hard to find that combination. Be it as it may, Thomas Tuchel revealed his secret and his most lethal weapon that could give him an edge in this season's title race.
1. Eduard Mendy
The senagalese goalkeeper really came prepared as he made series of saves to keep Chelsea's three points intact. Eduard Mendy is still one of Chelsea's most consistent players and his reflexes came in handy for the blues today. If he retains this form, he will definitely be a colossus at the back for Chelsea this sesson.
2. Excellent Squad Rotation
The truth of the matter is that the Chelsea squad that faced Brentford is entirely different from the one that of Southampton and it is also very possible that Tuchel might try out a different squad against Malmo FF on tuesday. The truth of the matter is that any team with this kind of squad depth will find it very difficult to have fatigued players. This will definitely help Tuchel have a better advantage over other big teams.
