Premier League

Opinion: The reason why most top EPL teams could struggle to contain Chelsea this season


Chelsea has excellently started the current Premier League season with 4 wins and a draw at their first five league matches this season. The London club has been a strong leading title contestant this season after scoring 12 targets in five games so far, granting only one goal in the process and they are also at the top of the League table with 13 points although they are already facing some of the top teams in their opening matches, including Arsenal, Liverpool, Crystal Palace and Tottenham. 

This demonstrates how strong, resolute and consistent they are in this season, as they look forward to winning the Premier League in the last few years. Like Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Brighton, West Ham and other teams, though, they are all very excellent this season, and they are expected to challenge this year's league crown as well. 

But given that Chelsea was very composed in all positions on the pitch, and also playing with great trust and cohesiveness in all their games up to now, it's clear that Chelsea is ready to challenge this season as they appear to be very strong in every position and that most Premier League teams can fight to contain Chelsea on games if they continue to play that way. 

Another reason teams could fight Chelsea this season is because of their profundity. Chelsea now boasts one of the best depths of the squad in the league, and Tuchel is also able to use them depending on the play style of his opponent. We have all seen how certain modifications from the initial line up he utilized against Zenit on Tuesday might be quite tough to determine his game plans for opposition clubs. Defensive players such as Silva, Rudiger, James, Alonso, Kante, and Chalobah have all scored one goal for Chelsea in their first five League games of season. 

The tactics of Tuchel also make it possible for any player to score goals regardless of their function and position at pitch, and this makes it difficult for their opponents to include their games, particularly those teams that focus on key players, which in turn provide scores for unknown players.
