The starting list that makes Chelsea manager Graham Potter’s head tilt is a hot topic.
Chelsea drew without scoring in the 22nd round of the Premier League in the 2022/23 season against Fulham held at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 4th (Korean time).
Chelsea, who ended up drawing two league games in a row, added one point and moved to ninth place (8 wins, 6 draws, 7 losses, 30 points), one point ahead of Liverpool, who played two less games.
What became a hot topic among fans on this day was Porter’s selection list.
Chelsea, who started out in a 4-3-3 formation, sent Kepa Arrizabala as goalkeeper and Reese James, Tiago Silva, Benoit Badiacil and Mark Cucurella in defense. Conor Gallagher, Enso Fernandez, and Mason Mount played in midfield, while Hakim Ziyesh, Kai Havertz, and Mudriq Mihailo started attacking.
On the bench were Marcus Bettinelli, Trevo Chalova, Raheem Sterling, Ben Chilwell, Kalidou Koulibaly, Dartro Popana, Cesar Azpilicueta, Cani Chuquemeca and Noni Madueke.
While the selection of Enso, a man worth 160 billion won, and Mudrik, who was in poor condition due to a cold, became a hot topic, the appointment of Jiyesi as a starter also drew attention.
Jiyesi, who lost his position at Chelsea this season, was on the verge of a loan to PSG in France at the end of the winter transfer window.
However, Chelsea couldn’t finish the paperwork properly, and when I sent the normal paperwork, I couldn’t leave the lease because the transfer market was already closed.
What surprised the fans was that Jiyesi, who was classified as an out-of-power player and decided to rent, was sent as a starter in the next game right after the transfer window closed.
For this reason, opinions are being raised among fans that manager Porter appointed him as a starter to appease Jiye-shi, who could not leave the club by mistake. 온라인바카라
If it was for appeasement, it would be a big problem. This is because in a game where securing points is important, the coach is paying attention to the feelings of one player, not the team.
Of course, it should be taken into account that there were no players other than Jiye-shi to be sent as a starter.
Sterling, who played as a substitute in the second half, had just returned from injury. It is also somewhat difficult to appoint a freshman who needs verification like Popana or Madueke as a starter.
Whether it was to appease Jiye-shi or to give him a last chance for a later schedule, Porter’s intentions are expected to be known through the West Ham away starting list on the 11th.
