Chelsea has officially qualified for the champions league Round of 16. This is coming after Thomas Tuchel’s squad trashed Juventus 4-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea was magnificent and ruthless in their style of play, while again showing how energetic their players could be for an entire 90 minutes.
Goals by Trevoh Chalobah, Reece James, Hudson-Odoi, and Timo Werner gave Chelsea the needed win to qualify for the next level in the UEFA Champions League campaign.
Chelsea star player, N’Golo Kante, was forced to be substituted after he had a knock on his knee that threatened his continuous stay on the pitch. In the peak of the second half, Ben Chilwell suffered another injury that got him to limp off from the pitch, respective substitutes for the duo, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Azpilicueta performed very well, while Ruben assisted Callum Hudson-Odoi in his own goal, César Azpilicueta made an outstanding contribution in the defense unit.
The Blues will be away to Zenit St Petersburg in their final Champions League group game on Wednesday, December 8.
Chelsea boasts of one of the most disciplined defense in the entire Europe at the moment, a clear goal option was saved by Thiago Silva after Alvaro Morata almost converted a cool chip above Édouard Mendy. Hakim Ziyech was magnificent in the team. Throughout the minutes of play, he contributed immensely to the attack and assisted Timo Werner to score the last goal. Reece James may just be taking over the right-wing role from César Azpilicueta too, his ability to score, defend and assist the midfield is something to reckon with too.
Following Tuchel’s words when he first made an entrant into Chelsea, “I will build a team that nobody would like to play against,” Tuchel has gone on to win the Champions League trophy and play in an FA cup final. He’s at the moment, in the first position in the Premier League ranking with three points above City.
Chelsea will be trying out Carrick-Fletcher’s inherited squad on the weekend and would wish to retain the position on the top of the table longer. It’d be up to Manchester United to challenge them in a heated contest on the evening of Sunday.
