The expectations were high for Chelsea coming into the 2020/2021 season as they confirmed the signing of several players. Timo Werner, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, Edouard Mendy, Hakim Ziyech, Malang Sarr, and Hakim Ziyech were all bought in the summer to boost a team in a clear transition phase.
Chelsea is on a high note as there is a clear competition between the players and the willingness to impress the coach.
Here are three reasons why Chelsea are in pole position to claim the league title in the 2020/2021 season
1. A strong sense of competition between players
One of the main criteria for any league-winning side is a strong sense of competition. The attack is full of strikers who can such goals such as Olivier Giroud, Tammy Abraham, and Timo Werner. These three players on their day can rip defenses apart with their goals. They would surely give Frank Lampard a selection headache going into every match. Their midfield is also packed with talented players who can boss the middle of the pitch very well.
2. Chelsea has a good defense
Chelsea has returned to being a side who can boast of having a good defense. The integration of players such as Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell has helped a lot and they have shown that they are important in the team. Thiago Silva has shown experience and been a leader in such a short time he has arrived. The saying “attack wins you games but defense wins you tournaments” could be working for Chelsea this season.
3. They no longer have goalkeeping issues
One problem Chelsea has had over the years is with the goalkeeping aspect. It is no longer news that Kepa Arrizabalaga has not lived up to the expectation and the price tag on him. However, with the introduction of Eduoard Mendy, Chelsea fans no longer have to worry about conceding cheap goals.
