Blue Mondays: Blues Back on Track

Chelsea return to winning ways after three game winless streak.


Defeat in Turin –

Chelsea’s midweek clash with Juventus marked yet another disappointing trip to Italy, which saw a second defeat in two games for Thomas Tuchel’s side.


The Blues actually had a lot of the ball throughout the game. However, once again failed to create any clear-cut chances to break the Italian giants down.


The only goal came in the 1st minute of the second half from Federico Chiesa, who punished a Chelsea side that seemed to still have their heads in the changing rooms. Although the Blues mounted pressure in the last few minutes, the equaliser was not forthcoming.

Three Points Against the Saints –

Chelsea bounced back to winning ways with a table topping win over Southampton at a soaking wet Stamford Bridge.


Again, the manager made changes and Chelsea took an early lead through a Trevoh Chalobah header in front of the Shed End. VAR then joined in by disallowing a Timo Werner goal, which game shortly after Romelu Lukaku also saw his goalbound strike disallowed for an offside offence.

The Saints later equalised through a James Ward-Prowse penalty, which took place an hour into the game.


Ward-Prowse was then booked for a late challenge on Jorghino but it was upgraded to a red after the referee was advised to check the pitch side monitor.


The 11 men of Chelsea then made their extra man count with Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell both scoring in the last six minutes. This means Chelsea have now had 12 different scorers in the Premier League this season.

International Break –

Again, the season is delayed with the penultimate international break of the year meaning Chelsea players will be travelling all over the world to represent their respective nations.


The Blues will return to club action on October 16th as they take on Brentford in west London.
