Opinion: The Reason Why Other Clubs Should Be Scared Of Playing Chelsea This Season


When opposing club managers see the current Chelsea team in action, they are likely to be concerned about the dangers that the team poses to their own clubs. Chelsea has looked extremely strong so far this season, winning four of its first five games and allowing only one goal, which came from a penalty kick. 

In order to secure results against Thomas Tuchel's team, other club managers will have a number of considerations to take into consideration prior to the match. 

The remark made by Thomas Tuchel when he took over as head coach of Chelsea in January stated that he intends to establish a team at the club that other teams will not want to play against. Since then, Chelsea has established itself as the team that other teams do not want to face in any competition because of how difficult it has been to play against them in the past. 

My thoughts on some of the reasons why other clubs would be nervous about playing against Chelsea will be shared in this post. 

1. A well-organized defense 

Despite the fact that Chelsea's defense is one of the most organized in Europe, they have managed to keep some of the greatest and most threatening assaults in the league at bay. 

Despite having a plethora of attacking players at their disposal, Liverpool have only managed to break the Chelsea defense once in their last two meetings with the Blues, and that came via a penalty kick. 

Several of the finest clubs in Europe, including Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Atletico Madrid, have been frustrated by the Chelsea defense. 

A squad that makes almost no defensive mistakes in games and is well organized in defense becomes a nightmare for their opponents, making Chelsea one of the most frightening teams to play against in the Premier League. 

2. Unpredictability

With his tactics, team selection, and substitutions, Thomas Tuchel has created an unpredictable environment for the Chelsea club. 

Chelsea's manager devised his team's tactics and player selection in accordance with the opponents they would encounter. Tuchel is a very tactical coach who selects players based on their special characteristics that match the specific opponents against whom the squad will be competing. 

In several instances, the Chelsea manager has deployed certain players in specific places in order to achieve a tactical goal against a specific opponent, which has made the Chelsea team extremely difficult to predict for the opposing club. 

3. Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea secured the services of one of the best forwards in Europe during the most recent transfer window, and the return of Romelu Lukaku to the club has given other teams something else to think about when they face the Premier League champions. 

Lukaku has had a strong start to the season for Chelsea, scoring four goals in his first four games, all of which have come from only six shots on goal. 

When it comes to scoring goals, the 28-year-old is quite clinical and doesn't require many opportunities to do so. If the opposing manager wants to see results, he will have to figure out a means to keep him from scoring goals.
