Chelsea started their FA Cup campaign with a 4-1 victory against Peterborough, and the display from the Blue boys was excellent.
Minus the red card to John Terry and the goal conceded which came as a result of the red card, there are so many positives that could be taken from the game, and one of which was that Chelsea rendered a world-class performance.
Goals from Pedro, Willian and Batshuayi gave Chelsea the victory, but we’d all agree that the team was perfect.
For a neutral fan, Chelsea’s game was enjoyable (way more than a movie), as the players moved the ball with a certain swagger. Chelsea clearly dominated the game, and the attacking threat of the Chelsea team was evident in the fact that Chelsea had 34 shots, of which 12 were on target.
If Pedro’s ball had gone in rather than hit the woodwork, it would have been even worse. Chelsea had 64% possession and 9 corner kicks, putting serious pressure on the Peterborough defence all through the game.
Seeing Pedro bombard the left flank brought an additional sense of excitement to the game, and he was terrific in that position.
The win against Peterborough has made us forget the loss to Spurs, and this will definitely keep the team’s fear factor intact.
