Former Chelsea captain accurately assesses the team’s lack of planning
One former Chelsea captain has responded to yet another abysmal Chelsea performance this season as concerns mount up again.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team lost 1-0 to Middlesbrough in the semi final of the League Cup last night, even though luckily they do have the second leg to turn this one around.
But the fact is they lost to a team who are in midtable in the Championship, and their performance was so poor, regardless of what Pochettino tries to claim.
Yes, they had chances and should have scored, but those chances largely came from Middlesbrough mistakes and if you actually watch the game you can see that this set of players have no idea what to do in the final third and lack imagination and a plan. There are no tactics.
