Most times, football can be a materialistic lover that needs you to meet to its every demand. The world’s most popular sport requires mental, physical, emotional, psychological and financial capacity-building to be best. These are the hallmarks for aspiring champions. It’s either they make it or break it.
This surely explains why Chelsea’s draw against Burnley last weekend was seen as a disappointing result. The Blues were expected to win that game and extend their lead over their rivals at the league summit. Chelsea’s stalemate at Turf Moor seen as more of an exposure to being our infallibility than just a mere blip. Now at the business end of the season, there’s certainly no room for errors or complacency. Chelsea must play in the right way with the right style to get the right result.
Here are 3 things we need to do now to get the right results:
THE CHELSEA FANS NEED TO COME ALIVE WITH THEIR SUPPORT:
The fans are seen as the ’12th player’ for every football team. Their loud cheers, singing and shouts are what the team need to get fired up for and during games. Their support is a morale-booster for the team, and could make players confident to deliver topnotch performances. The fans need to ignite the passion in the game that will cause the players to pull through daunting challenges. Conte and the team need this at the moment to get them motivated for every challenge they are to face till the title is won.
NO COMPLACENCY, NO ERRORS:
It’s the time of the season when errors and any show of complacency can be punished badly. The last thing Chelsea need at the moment is any of such and a pint of any in our game that kill our title aspirations. The players must put the eyes on the prize, absorb the pressure that comes from being top, avoid distractions and give their best to get the job done.
BE MORE RUTHLESS WITH A WINNING MENTALITY:
Virtually everyone in the team (except a few)has been a silverware winner and so have the experience of how daunting it can be to win trophies. Such wealth of experience will be vital in our title run-ins. We must become ruthless in executing our game plans to the latter and killing off teams with opportunities created. There should be no chance given to opposition teams as a glimmer of hope to get back into games. Let’s seize our moments.
It’s now or never…let’s fight on.
