Though, many Chelsea fans are delighted with the performances of the whole Chelsea team yesterday securing a 1-1 draw against Real Madrid, the goal margin should have widen in favour of the London Team if two key positions on the pitch were effectively controlled by the concerned players.
The two positions includes the attacking line in which Timo Werner's lack of clinical shots costed the whole team. The Blues could have been leading comfortably in the first half of the match when a headed cross from Christian Pulisic was directed in to Timo Werner's reach. But the former RB Leipzig forward shot straight at Thibaut Courtois. Another talking point which is perceived to be more affecting is in the midfield where Jorginho's inability to direct the ball forward didn't complement the efforts of the likes of Pulisic, Werner, Harvert who are running upfront for clear passes from the midfielder. Instead of directing the ball forward, it appeared that the Italian midfielder is more comfortable playing safe by passing the balls backward.
The images taken from the match yesterday are below and they explain much about some wonderful opportunities which the team should have effectively utilized yesterday:
Do you think Jorginho is right by playing safe in most matches when he should created some possible chances that will help the forward players instead? Let us know your opinions in the comment section.
