Another Good Start

By Gary Watton

Since a woeful Community Shield outing, Chelsea have gone from strength to strength. After a great start to the league, culminating in five straight wins, the Blues have preserved their winning start by also claiming maximum points from their first European excursion of the season. Young Barkley expertly fed Willian and the Brazilian ace found the back of the net, with the help of some poor goalkeeping. Thereafter the hosts' goalkeeper twice denied Pedro, while the misfiring Morata also twice went narrowly wide. The visitors would have taken this score if they had been offered it beforehand, and whilst a clean sheet is cause for optimism, a failure to add to the early goal is cause for concern. That said, our main goal threat, Monsieur Hazard, was rested in preparation for our awkward assignment in east London this Sunday afternoon. Is anyone getting bored with this winning sequence? Not Blues fans, that's for sure!
