It’s tough to know what to make of Chelsea so far this season. I had the opinion that this project came around a little too early for Frank Lampard, and even though there are definite frailties in his aspect, it must be said the indications are promising.
Put bluntly: they concede a great deal — that makes them an interesting suggestion for the neutral and score a lot. Unbeaten now in four matches, Lampard sets his sights on Europe, where that a Valencia side is welcomed by them in disarray.
The Spanish giants aren’t the miserly ensemble who caused Manchester United all sorts of problems in last year’s competition. In La Liga, Los Ches both have dropped both of the away games from Celta Vigo and Barcelona–the latter being a 5-2 beating –along with the sacking of the favorite Marcelino has generated a great deal of unrest.
Despite exceeding six in their past two (and failing to acquire their opening couple of home matches this season), I’m financing Chelsea to acquire. Valencia appear there for the taking after their problems on and off the pitch, also I’ve been so impressed by the attacking output of Chelsea this season, especially considering their relative inexperience. Credit for this goes entirely to Lampard. ??
It’ll be interesting to see if Lampard chooses to your in-form Tammy Abraham up-front or instead selects the savvy, experienced Olivier Giroud; whatever approach he can take, however, the mood around the Chelsea camp is Much More positive than that which Valencia are going through, and this could play a Vital role in determining Tuesday’s victor. ????
