Chelsea Football Club Suffered A Huge Defeat Against Their London Rivals, Arsenal Football Club In One Of The Most Talked About Pre-season Match.
Arsenal thrashed Chelsea 4-0 with two goals coming in each half of the game. The manager of Chelsea was left furious at his press conference following the disappointing results that the Blues suffered in Orlando in the early hours of Sunday, July 24th, 2022.
We were absolutely not competitive. The worrying part is the level of commitment, physically and mentally, for this match was not the same, it was far higher for Arsenal than us. We can argue they played with I think their strongest line-up; they’ve had now together several weeks and for more than one year. They’ve strengthened their line-up, played the same structure, and this is the line-up they’ll try to start Premier League games. It was not our strongest lineup and this is part of an explanation but only a little part. The other part is worrying.
Tuchel also gave an update about Jules Kounde’s move from Sevilla following all the drama that is coming with the transfer of the French player.
There is no update, no update. The analysing of the season does not change because of this game. Unfortunately, it proved my point and the last week proves my point. I would prefer to not be right and I did everything to prove myself wrong, but at the moment I feel I was right when I look at the last season and at the parts of the game where we struggled and how we struggled.
Chelsea’s next game will be in the Premier League when they host Frank Lampard and his Everton team.
