The match played at Amex Stadium (Brighton) without attendance, at an approximate temperature of 19º, partly cloudy and with small chances of rain. I think of a nice game, with teams aiming for the ball and with coaches thinking of attacking.
Starting with the seagulls, it is worth saying that it is so attractive to see even for a team that used to be at the bottom of the table; led by Graham Potter, the most anti-British British coach in his game style. He is a creative coach; he likes having the ball and being fluid in his game. He is not a coach you can typecast to a specific game system, because he accommodates to different scenarios and systems, using his players in different roles; but when he doesn’t have the ball, he knows how to stand and fill spaces. Last season, we saw how many of their games were moved and with many goals when they were visited by high-ranked teams.
Regarding the blues, we have Frank Lampard who tends to use a 4-3-3 with deep wings, with moving strikers to create spaces; but he also uses a 4-2-3-1 depending on the match. Ultimately, this is a team that also wants the ball, with a great midfielder as Jorginho rounded by fast and talented players. Last season with Lampard, Chelsea played 19 matches away in Premier League; from which 16 were over 2.5 goals; the gathered an average of 4.1 goals on those 19 matches, which clearly shows that Chelsea attacks very well, but they suffer very much in the back.
We are before the first Premier match without preseason; I’m following their game styles and their numbers and I have mentioned before, hoping for the attacks to be more accurate in the defenses. At the beginning of the seasons, I always recommend lowering the usual stake until more matches have taken place until we have ab objective judgment of each team.
