With his many recruits, Chelsea negotiated their first outcome of the season in the Premier League on Monday. But without convincing.
Werner already crucial, Havertz still rough
Still in burglary, the London team has not mastered everything. And she might even have had a frustrating hitch if she had not reacted quickly to the Seagulls equalizer. The Belgian Leandro Trossard had restored parity with a nice strike outside the area (54th), which responded to the opening of Jorginho’s points on penalties. The Italian international changed his mind after a foul committed on Timo Werner (23rd).
It was only two minutes between the goal for the premises and the second performance for the Blues. It was signed by young Reece James. The 20-year-old England defender saved his people from doubting a magnificent 20-meter strike, after a side pass from Jorginho. A large missile on the right, which could only hit the mark.
Zouma liberated blues
At 2-1, Chelsea regained control of the debates and Zouma came to put an end to all the tension by choosing a corner in the 66th. A valuable goal because it made the Blues breathe and gave a calm end to the game. There was no luxury in this rather sensitive meeting where the visitors clearly lacked benchmarks in the game, such as the German rookie Kai Havertz.
Lampard’s men must show a much better face next weekend if they are to write a positive result against outgoing champions Liverpool.
