Owen Hargreaves, who played for Manchester United, 바카라사이트 has criticized Chelsea’s recruitment policy.
Chelsea lost 0-1 in the first leg of the round of 16 of the 2022-23 season European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) against Chelsea at Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund, Germany at 5 am on the 16th.
Chelsea started with a 4-2-3-1 formation. Kai Havertz, Mihailo Mudrik, Joao Felix, Hakim Ziyesh, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Enzo Fernandez, Ben Chilwell, Kalidou Koulibaly, Thiago Silva, Rhys James and Kepa Arrizabalaga were named in the starting lineup. .
The match was split by one goal. In the 18th minute of the second half, Chelsea’s corner kick attack was blocked and Dortmund counterattacked. Karim Adeyemi, who caught the ball under the half-line, attempted a solo breakthrough. The only player left behind at Chelsea was Enzo. Adeyemi dribbled to the vicinity of the penalty box and shook the net with a left-footed shot after passing both Enzo and Kepa.
Chelsea also had a chance. In the 30th minute of the first half, Felice’s decisive shot from inside the penalty box was blocked by the defense, and 7 minutes later, a left-footed shot hit the post. In the 9th minute of the second half, James’ free kick was erased by the goalkeeper’s save. In the 32nd minute of the second half, Koulibaly’s shot did not cross the goal line and was eventually defeated.
Chelsea’s offensive power problem is on the cutting board once again. Chelsea have scored just four goals in nine games played in 2023. In the winter transfer market, Joao Felix and Mihailo Mudrik were recruited, but traditional strikers are still not embraced, and manager Graham Porter insists on Havertz zero top.
Hargreaves told the British ‘Daily Mail’ that “Chelsea has spent 600 million pounds (approximately 920 billion won) since Todd Boelli took office. But still not having a striker is crazy. Chelsea can advance to the quarterfinals after winning the second leg. To do that, you need to score goals. Dortmund showed the result of failing to score today.”
