How is Chelsea’s updated squad?

Date: March 27, 2023 Time: 06:39:14

After the departure of Roman Abramovich from the leadership of the Chelsea football club, the club was seriously affected, including due to the large-scale restructuring of the new owner Todd Bowley, who bought 16 players in two transfer windows. Usually, clubs do not like to spend a lot of money in the winter transfer window, but the “aristocrats” did not betray themselves here, spending around 360 million euros. Now Chelsea have one of the most expensive squads in the world, and the pressure on head coach Graham Potter is felt even more, because after 20 rounds, the team is only 10th in the English Premier League standings. But what will their updated lineup look like? And what are the risks associated with it?

New Chelsea. two equal compositions

Chelsea’s composition is space. In this proposal, it would be possible to close all questions, but we will continue to dig deeper and provide a set of players for each position.

Here’s what Chelsea’s optimal starting line-up would look like if there were no suspensions or injuries:

If one of the listed players is unavailable, the Blues have a nearly equivalent second lineup:

And even after the 22 listed players, a few more stars joined the balance: Gabriel Slonina, Nathaniel Chalobah, Lewis Hall, Conor Gallagher, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Karni Chukwuemeka, Noni Madueke, David Datro Fofana, Armandro Broya.

Is that good?

A long bench is the dream of any coach, especially those who are fighting for multiple titles, but sometimes these positions are played in the opposite direction, which creates problems.

With the arrival of new players, the bidding and competition from Chelsea inflated to incredible proportions, and some veteran players as early as January realized that they could not get a place in the starting eleven, so they wanted to leave the club in the transfer. window. Someone got lucky, and someone at the last minute found out that Chelsea refused to sell him, condemning him to spend the next six months with minimal match practice.

It is difficult to remember a specific example showing and proving that such a massive purchase can immediately bring results, and even big clubs have been “burned” by resorting to this transfer approach. Perhaps Potter can cope with the updated lineup, but there’s a chance the locker room could be filled with anxiety and discontent. In particular, Hakim Ziyech could become a source of negativity, who was even ready to pay money out of his own pocket, just to go to PSG on loan, but the “aristocrats” refused the deal in the last minutes of the transfer window. , which probably hit the Moroccan full-back hard.

Terrible for Potter. Even Mauricio Pochettino, whom Lionel Messi bought, did not experience as much pressure at PSG.
