Plenty of positives for Chelsea despite heavy defeat

Chelsea’s defeat against Man United was comprehensive, seeing the team lose out 4-0 to the Red Devils at Old Trafford, but there were plenty of good signs too, especially in midfield.

The two problems we knew we would have going into this season were in attack and in defence. While our keeper and our midfield (at least when N’Golo Kante is playing) can go up against anyone in the league, the lack of an effective striker and the lack of experience (especially following the departure of David Luiz) in defence are already clear the big issues in the team.

Frank Lampard can still see positives in his last game. His team were caught out in naive ways, but also threatened at times and hit the woodwork repeatedly.

It sounds silly to say, and the problems are obvious and may well be difficult to fix, but this was not on a par with some of the beating we’ve taken (with worryingly increasing regularity) in recent years. The pressing that Frank has been working on this season was very evident, and we nearly caught out Man United a few times.

In the end, a green team with a green manager were savaged on the counter attack by a United team that may turn over a few other sides like that this season. So let’s not get too down about it, there are plenty of games to get this right, and some parts are functioning well already.

There won’t be many harder games this season. Let’s take another week and iron out some errors. We go again on Wednesday.
