Chelsea had a relatively good first season under Lampard, who proved very good at developing young talents from the Academy while Chelsea were banned to sign players. Defensively there were unresolved issues all season, though, and this is an area that Lampard seemed unable to sort out, Chelsea failed to keep a clean sheet on the road all season! Chelsea are the big spenders of the off-season with already 5 major transfers completed and at least 1 more well down the pipeline, but yet to be officially confirmed. The arrivals of Silva, Chilwell, Ziyech, Havertz and Werner guarantee even better displays next season. If, as expected, 1-2 other stars arrive Chelsea promise to have not just a lethal starting XI, but also the strength in depth to deal with a busy schedule. Right now it seems that at least 3 of the newcomers will be regular starters, while Pulisic is gearing up for big things in his second year at the club. He finished the previous campaign in hot form. It seems that the most used shape will be 4-3-3 with the front line Pulisic-Werner-Ziyech promising to challenge Liverpool’s Fab Three (Salah-Firmino-Mane) in terms of efficiency and goals scored. The firepower up front makes Chelsea’s forward actions arguably their biggest strength and it seems almost certain that the Blues will be amongst the highest scoring sides in the league this term. Probably the main weakness is coach Lampard. His inexperience, strange tactics and choices in many games last season cost precious points. Lampard is still learning the tricks of the job and, even with fewer mistakes from his part expected, he’s still likely to make some.

Target


Heavy strengthening in off-season means that top 3 finish is a must. Not likely to be good enough to challenge for the title, but shouldn’t have problems staying in the top 4.

Season Review
2020/2021

№4: Chelsea

Chelsea had a turbulent season but it ended very well for them after another mid-season managerial change worked its magic. The Blues were the big spenders of the off season with Mendy, Silva, Chilwell, Havertz, Ziyech and Werner added to the squad. The amount of money spent meant that results and trophies were demanded straight away, but Lampard failed to deliver. The inexperienced coach struggled to extract the best out of his squad with a series of negative results. After only 2 wins in the first 6 rounds, Lampard’s reign ended in mid-January after a run of 5 defeats in 8 league games saw Chelsea losing touch with the top 6. This decision worked with the ex-PSG manager Tuchel taking charge and immediately changing the tactics, personnel and most importantly the results. Chelsea suddenly became impossible to beat, with a 15-game unbeaten run. The main reason was a vastly improved defensive stability with Mendy and Rudiger outstanding. The Blues secured a top 4 finish when a favour from Tottenham helped them to stay above Leicester. Chelsea also went all the way to the FA Cup final where they were unlucky to lose 0:1 vs. Leicester. However, the Blues lifted the big prize, the Champions League trophy, for the first time since 2012 after edging Man City 1:0 in the final. Preparing for his first full season in charge Tuchel is expected to keep the transfer activity to a minimum this summer and if anything Chelsea need to think about trimming their squad in the coming months. It’s been some time since Chelsea lifted the Premier League title and the early indications are that this will be the main priority next season.
