Anfield Disappointment

By Gary Watton
April 14 2019

An encouraging run of four successive victories was halted, as Chelsea lost on Merseyside for the second time this spring, each time conceding two second half goals. The ploy of fielding Hazard in a false number nine position once more backfired. Our record against the top teams is now a running sore, as the strategy is increasingly a cautious and negative one. Silly Sarri stated that he felt that his team played well in the first half, but how can no goals and a small share of possession and a failure to work the opposition goalkeeper amount to a terribly cosmic effort? Surely Conte or Mourinho wouldn't have been so contented. The loss of the speedy Rudiger just before half time was a blow. Hopefully he will be back before the end of the season. The Blues can still finish in the top four but there is no margin for error now, especially as their three rivals have a game in hand. Maybe just maybe Chelsea will assert themselves more when they visit unconvincing ManUre in two weeks' time.
