Tactical Analysis: Chelsea FC vs Norwich City
|Tactical Analysis: Chelsea FC vs Norwich City|
Chelsea cruised past the Canaries by putting 4 goals past their keeper. Truly a splendid performance by the boys in blue and Roberto Di Matteo will definitely be proud of them.
Many points to pick out from this outing and I’ll start of with the movement before Ramires, Romeu and Azpilicueta were substituted in .
Lets face it. The Mikel – Lampard partnership was destined for disaster. People were happy to see Ramires play along with the Nigerian, but how did Chelsea put 4 past Norwich with Super Frank scoring one?
Well the main reason why Chelsea were stuttering when Lampard played deep was because he could not decide when to go front and when to come back. He misplaced his passes when pressure was applied. So what did RDM do?
Extra help was introduced. How was extra help introduced?
Oscar got in and applied good pressure and put in a good amount of decent tackles.
Not just that, he was found running up the left flank in place of Cole. He attempted a silly trick and ended up conceding a throw in. He laughed a bit, smiled and patted the Norwich defender.
The last incident happened during a corner. Mata took the corner but the referee whistled and wanted him to take it again. Chelsea at this point where 4-1 up. Terry knew the corner was cancelled and attempted a ridiculous bicycle. Ended up making a fool of himself and laughed it off. The fans instantly started singing, “John Terry’s won the double !” .
Our captain thrives on pressure, whereas Cole looked rather serious throughout the game.
