As the new manager arrived at Stamford Bridge, the Blues seemed to go with new flares in the field. Chelsea are still unbeaten in the league and leads the table from 3rd position. Their evergreen forward Eden Hazard has been terrific so far and Chelsea seem butter clean. The young talents are also doing well for the side. Ross Barkley continued his excellent form with a goal and two assists in the 4-0 scoreline against Burnley last weekend. Ruben Loftus-Cheek put in another good performance against the Derby though there was some defending problem in the match on Halloween. Chelsea went lucky in the encounter against the side of Frank Lampard in the Carabao cup where the Blues surpassed by 3-2 scoreline and secured their progress. The Blues had two loan stars on the field for Derby in Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori. Unfortunately, the Tomari will remember the game as a haunted night as he opened the scoring with an own goal. Moreover, the ex Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard showed some brilliant stuff being the opponent manager and hypnotized the fans again with his utmost skills but this time by the bench. However, the transfer rumours are again coming in the headlines for the Blues as the winter window approaches.
Chelsea have been linked with a big-money January move for the former Liverpool flop who has resurrected his career in Serie A. Suso, who spent three years at Anfield without ever making many sounds.
However, since his joining to the Italian side AC Milan in 2015, the Spanish play-maker has become one of the hottest properties in the Italian top flight, catching the eye of the former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri in the meanwhile. The reports suggest that Sarri is now giving serious consideration of triggering the £36.5m release clause of the Spanish playmaker. It seems that Sarri sees him a “perfect” fit for the system he’s implemented at Stamford Bridge.
Though, Milan are unlikely to be willing to let Suso go for his clausal fee alone. It is reported that the Italian side are actually planning to offer the 24-year-old an improved deal that they hope will serve to ward off interest from any potential suitors. The attacking football system implied by the new manager is the new key for the Blues to succeed in the league. The former manager Antonio Conte was sloth and defensive. The false nine failed terribly last time in spite of winning the league in his debut season. As the reports suggest, Antonio Conte wants to replace the Portuguese Jose Mourinho at Manchester United. The Italian had been favourite to take over Julen Lopetegui at Real Madrid through the club instead appointed the former player Santiago Solari on a “provisional basis”.
Chelsea will face Crystal Palace tomorrow and may look into maintaining the unbeaten streak and lead the point table. On the other hand, Crystal Palace belong to 14th position with eight points after 10 matches. It would be a home game for the Blues and would also be a chance for them to crawl up to the top spots.
