That’s just half the story of October as well. In those four Premier League games where Chelsea have kept four straight clean sheets, they have scored 11 goals and picked up the maximum 12 points. Not a bad return considering what happened to them on Saturday 24th September at the Emirates Stadium. Don’t worry I won’t be bringing that up again.
Hello to all you good Chelsea fans out there, my name is James Connors from the football website Two Footed Tackle and I love sport and in particular football. I’m a freelance writer and I recently contacted The Famous CFC to see if I could do a guest article for them, as I noticed they didn’t have any recent ones. They very kindly agreed, so below is my continued report of Chelsea Football Club and how they have being doing recently in my own opinion.
Obviously there is a long way to go in the current season but after an in different start, Conte has managed his team well and dealt with issues that were in front of him. No way you can say he’s found a 100% winning formula of course, but for now he’s found a solution to what he could see was going wrong at times.
Of course with no European football, comes more time spent with the team on the training field and that is a massive help. As Chelsea fans you’ll want to be back in the Champions League as soon as but in the meantime, why not take full advantage of not being in it and go out there and maybe win the league?
For the likes of Conte and any new managers coming into a new team right at the beginning of a season, not having to worry about European football and two games every week, must be a bonus. Managers can’t really come out and say that, but secretly they know they have so much more time to prepare for the up and coming games they do have.
It means you can work with and then get the best out of some of your players as well, which in the last four weeks has certainly proved the case. With Costa and Hazard finding their form from a couple of seasons ago. Plus the switch from a back four to a back three, which seems to be suiting David Luiz massively.
Anyway, time for me to go. If you think you did well in October, then there could be more good news for you to come in November as well. Take full advantage of the no European or domestic cup involvement now in your following fixtures:
Everton at home on Saturday 5th November – 17:30hrs
Middlesbrough away on Sunday 20th November – 16:00hrs
Tottenham at home on Saturday 26th November – 17:30hrs
Nine points out of nine is certainly a possibility even with your big rivals coming to visit right at the end of the month. Thank you and have a good season.
