Chelsea has to chase early this season. The London football club, which made several top purchases over the summer and spent a lot of money, dropped 2 points at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday: 3-3. At half time, Chelsea still faced a 3-0 deficit. Last week, the team of coach Frank Lampard already lost to champions Liverpool (0-2). After three matches, Chelsea has 4 points.
Chelsea’s defense looked weak before half time. After 4 minutes, Spaniard Marcos Alonso made a mistake by heading the ball away through the middle. Callum Robinson took advantage by shooting the ball diagonally. The Irish forward was again accurate in the 25th minute, this time after an error by Brazilian captain Thiago Silva. Kyle Bartley made the pain for Chelsea even worse by making it 3-0 within half an hour.
After the break, the initiative lay with Chelsea. Mason Mount, former player of Vitesse, made the 3-1 with a nice long shot and Callum Hudson-Odoi brought back the tension with the 3-2 in the 70th minute. West Bromwich seemed to hold its own, but in injury time Tammy Abraham tapped in from close to 3-3.
Hakim Ziyech was still missing at Chelsea. The former Ajax player has resumed training after a knee injury.
