Storm Injury, Chelsea Have One Fit Midfielder Debuts Watford
The injury seems to really want to make Chelsea toughness in the beginning of this 2017/2018 season Lenterabola.com. Still not finished with healing against N’Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater, the Blues should be left Tiemoue Bakayoko so now only Cesc Fabregas left in the midfield stock.
The newly purchased Bakayoko this summer from AS Monaco gets groin lock problem while playing in Champions League’s third counter matchday at Stamford Bridge (20/10). This will make it absent when Chelsea tested the power of fourth-ranked occupant Premier League standings, Watford.
The lack of midfield options experienced today is not denied to make Antonio Conte anxiously half dead. Indeed, the Chelsea manager can still force some players to be more versatile, but still this condition makes him confused.
“For the moment I can not predict our next starting XI. There are still many doubts because we have to recover the players in a short time, “said Conte in his press conference.
“Yes it is true if we currently only have one fit midfielder. I do not like to change the player’s position but sometimes the adaptation needs to be done, ”
“Hopefully Kante can return sooner before the next international break. He has started to practice but is still separated from other players. While Danny still melakoni a number of processes. I do not want to take the risk to play it too early, “added the Italian gaffer.
Change the role of David Luiz
Actually in the game against Roma, Conte has made a number of modifications in the composition of his midfielder. To outsmart the lack of player stock, the original David Luiz was a central defender assigned to the defensive midfielder. Nevertheless this experiment counted failed due to three points off to follow the final score 3-3. Whereas Luiz quite often play with this role in the past.
Another solution is to use young players from academy dropouts, but unfortunately this year Chelsea did not promote the midfielder to the first team. Most of them are those who operate as defenders and attackers. Call it Andres Christense, Jeremy Boga, and Charly Musonda.
That way Chelsea’s struggle to stop the impressive rate of Watford will meet an additional burden. Whereas The Hornets alone was on fire with only once lost from six games ultimate. In the last week alone Troy Deeney and colleagues successfully immerse Arsenal with a score of 2-1 in injury time. (Source: Goal)
