Southampton in crisis slows down Chelsea train

Thomas tuchel still without losing in the Chelsea. That is the best news for the ‘blues’, who saw their winning streak put an end to a Southampton that he did not lose (1-1), but that he did not park his crisis of results and has already seven games without winning (he came from six consecutive losses).

The evil of Chelsea It was the same as always: the lack of punch. Because play, played a while. He moved the ball fast, came out well from behind and … nothing. This is how the game is summed up. In the opposite direction, Hassenhutl’s Southampton, which changed its scheme to face the ‘blues’ and did not feel comfortable with the ball.

In his eleven, this time Tuchel opted for Mendy and not Kepa, who had been playing for two games in a row. The goal did not have work except on one occasion. The only one the ‘saints’ had throughout the game. The defense was lost, Redmond slipped a ball to Minamino and he, with extreme calm, faked twice, knocked Mendy and Azpilicueta to the ground and scored a great goal (33 ‘).

All prior control of the Chelsea it was of little use. Marcos Alonso had the only clear shot on a volley that went wide. Abraham played little and Werner was missing.

It had to be Mount, which is winning the favor of Tuchel, the one who dynamited the game in the second half. He focused after the entry of Hudson-Odoi and did damage. So much so that he received a penalty for a reckless tackle by Ings and masterfully transformed it to put the tie (54 ‘). But little else. The change from Hudson-Odoi, who had entered the break, was more surprising in the blues than any offensive action.

In the end the points were distributed. Of course, because the crossbar wanted it, which in the last few moments repelled a tight header from Vestegaard that would have changed everything ”.
