The foundation of Chelsea’s successes in the Roman Abramovich era has been built on successful partnerships between two players. The striking telepathy between such players have often brought silverware at the end. To mention a few:
THE DROGBA-LAMPARD PARTNERSHIP:
The Ivorian striker and English midfielder enjoyed a telepathic partnership on the field. Frank Lampard’s perfect crosses and lopping through balls often found the head and chest of Drogba who would finish with great aplomb. Both players were part of Chelsea’s winning team from 2004-2012 winning several trophies.
THE COSTA-FABREGAS PARTNERSHIP:
Reminiscent of the Drogba-Lampard partnership, the Spanish duo also struck a devastating connection on field that powered Chelsea to two titles in the last three years.
The next connection to have emerged this season is between Morata and Azpilicueta. The defender’s 4 assists in 6 games for the striker shows the telepathic partnership between both players. Could this be another partnership that will lead Chelsea to glory? Certainly, from the look of things it’s has all the making of a formidable force that can bring success. Let’s hope for the best. Cheers!
