Chelsea, which welcomed a new season under the new owner, are repeating sluggishness contrary to expectations. Chelsea, who have been twisted and twisted, are gradually getting farther away from the top ranks, such as Joao Felix, a loanee who was recruited with a big heart, and was sent off in the first game.
Chelsea lost 1-2 in the 20th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season against Fulham held at Kraven Cottage in London, England on the 13th (Korean time).
As a result, Chelsea lost the last three games in a row, including the EPL and the FA Cup. Chelsea’s ranking fell to 10th with 7 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses (25 points).
On this day, Chelsea made a winning move by putting forward Felix, 바카라사이트 who was hired on loan through the winter transfer market, as a starter.
Felix led Chelsea’s attack with his outstanding personal skills and played a good role, but was sent off for a rough tackle in the 13th minute of the second half when the score was tight 1-1. Chelsea could not overcome their numerical inferiority and were caught by Fulham.
It’s a big loss for Chelsea. Chelsea, struggling with the successive injuries and sluggishness of their strikers, spent 11 million euros (approximately 15 billion won) to hire Felix for only six months. But he was sent off in his first match. Due to Felix’s suspension, he can’t play three more games.
Chelsea have been in a frustrating situation this season. The beginning is an unexpected change in owner.
Roman Abramovich, who bought Chelsea in 2003, was forced to leave the club due to sanctions over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. He took over as the new owner when Todd Balli sold it.
Boley’s owner opened his wallet after taking office and signed Kalidou Koulibaly, Raheem Sterling, Mark Cucurella, Wesley Popana, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
But it wasn’t good from the start. By the beginning of September, Chelsea had a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses in all competitions. In the end, Borley’s owner sacked manager Thomas Tuchel and handed over the helm to Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Porter.
After Porter’s appointment, he continued a good trend with 6 wins and 3 draws in 9 games. However, in October of last year, Chelsea lost only 2 wins (1 draw and 7 losses) in 10 games after losing 1-4 to Brighton, which Porter had previously led.
Some voices are already arguing for the resignation of manager Porter. Porter has to show the possibility of a rebound in the upcoming three-game series against Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Fulham without Felix. If you make a mistake, you may end up not being able to fill even one season.
