It’s a second straight Premier league win for Chelsea which sees the club going into the International break in positive mood. The Solid performance from the team should bring optimism to the fans. Conte’s Chelsea are showing no signs of slumping into a ‘Mourinho season’. This bodes well especially with lack of squad depth and should certainly make everyone connected to the club believe that once transfer targets are added to the squad in the remaining days of the transfer market, Conte will make Chelsea super achievers.
Here are 3 quick thoughts from the game against Everton:
CHELSEA DOMINATE EVERTON:
Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 23 home Premier League games against Everton since a narrow 1- 0 loss in November 1994 (W13 D10).
Everton have now conceded 10 goals against Chelsea under manager, Ronald Koeman, more than twice as many against any other opponent during his tenure at the club. Such is the Blues stronghold on Everton. Sunday’s match saw Everton make just four touches in Chelsea’s penalty area all game little wonder the contest was over in the first half after goals from Fabregas and Morata eased Chelsea to three points.
MORATA KEEPS IMPROVING:
It’s heartwarming to see Morata score and create goals after the myth that the Chelsea No. 9 shirt is cursed. In retrospect, the struggles of players who had worn the shirt playing for Chelsea is a valid point – Hernan Crespo, Matej Kezman and Fernanado Torres all flopped. More so, with a staggering transfer fee over his head, there have been doubts. But with each passing game the Spaniard is casting himself in the mould of a world beater. He might not have the domineering presence of Costa, but at the moment he’s making light work of everything thrown at him. For the history books, he is now the first player to score and assists in two home games consecutively.
WILLIAN PROVING HIS WORTH:
When news of Eden Hazard’s injury surfaced in the media during the off-season, the prediction was that Chelsea would struggle this season without their talisman. But in his absence, Brazilian dynamo, William has taken over as Chelsea creative force. His industry, pace, surging runs and overall play has dissipated fears and reinforced beliefs that Chelsea are title contenders.
Let’s enjoy the moment… Cheers!
