Kickoff: 16:30Chelsea opened the Premier League in a more bitter way. They marched to the yard of a Man United with a relatively young squad.
The coach of Frank Lampard's team is not bad. At one point, they put great pressure on the Reds' penalty area. Only the crossbar and the vertical column can help goalkeeper David De Gea not enter the ball net.
The Blues fans can take that excuse to justify the failure of the pet team. However, conceding 4 goals clearly reveals Chelsea's weakness.
Looking at Chelsea vs Leicester, the Stamford Bridge team lacks a real mutation factor. Christian Pulisic comes to replace Eden Hazard. However, the American player only came to England on foot and needed more time to integrate.
On the other hand, the squad lacks cohesion and pushes the attack, causing holes in the defensive line to show. That's not to mention, Man United's midfield is not impressive.
In the European Super Cup match against Liverpool then, Chelsea had a better performance. However, the pressure is still heavy on Lampard's shoulders when the victory continues to turn away.
