Chelsea, who has only one win in five league games, is looking to turn things around. They are pledging to win by inviting Aston Villa to their home stadium, Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea and Aston Villa are preparing for the 6th round match of the 2023-24 English Premier League (PL) at Chelsea’s home stadium, Stamford Bridge, at 10 pm (Korean time) on the 23rd. Aston Villa is ranked 7th in the league with 3 wins and 2 losses. They recently achieved a dramatic come-from-behind win against Crystal Palace in the league match, but were defeated 3-2 by Poland’s Legia Warsaw in the UEFA Europa Conference League match. It looks like he has hesitated a bit. Chelsea is struggling in the league with 1 win, 2 draws, 2 losses, and 14th place. Following a 1-0 loss to Nottingham, the atmosphere was not good as they failed to score a single goal and ended up with a 0-0 draw against Bournemouth.
# Chelsea finished 12th last season, but this year should be different… .
Chelsea finished last season in 12th place, their worst record. Ahead of this season, new manager Mauricio Pochettino was appointed. The team was also organized. They boldly sold Mason Mount and Kai Havertz, and recruited Moises Caicedo and Christopher Nkunku for a large transfer fee. I gritted my teeth to restore my honor.
But the current situation is grim. Starting players, including Caicedo and Nkunku, who should establish themselves as key players, as well as captain Reece James and Wesley Fofana, are suffering from injuries. The results of the game are also not good. There was only one win in five games. The opponent is Luton Town, a ‘promoted team’ who is considered the weakest. Additionally, in the last two games (Nottingham, Bournemouth), they ended up scoring no points and were unable to secure a win. This is why we are even more desperate for a win against Aston Villa.
# ’12 perfect scoring chances’ However, 5 goals and goal decision-making power are the key
According to soccer statistics analysis media ‘Fotmob’, Chelsea’s number of perfect scoring chances is 12, ranking second in the league. However, the actual number of successful goals was only 5, ranking 13th in the league. Even though there are numerous chances, they are unable to take advantage of them. The goal drought is serious. In the last game against Bournemouth, they led the game based on high possession, but were unable to score in the end, resulting in a 0-0 draw. Chelsea can be expected to win if their goal-scoring ability revives.
Aston Villa has allowed 8 goals in the last 4 games. The defense continued to show signs of instability. This can be seen as a good opponent for Chelsea, who need to end their goal drought. The shoulders of ‘freshman’ Nicholas Jackson and Raheem Sterling, who has two league goals, are heavy. Attention is being paid to whether the two players who scored side by side against Luton Town will be able to score again this time.
# Aston Villa is playing in just three days, and to make matters worse,안전놀이터
Aston Villa played an away game in the UEFA Europa Conference League on the 22nd. They lost 2-3 in the away match against Poland’s Legia Warsaw. It was even more painful because it was a loss to a team that was evaluated as one level below. However, without having time to shake off the regret of defeat, they have to set off on a trip to London in three days. There isn’t enough time to recover, and it’s an away game again. This away match against Chelsea is bound to be a burdensome match for Aston Villa, who conceded 9 goals and recorded 2 losses in 3 away league games this season.
Still, what we can look forward to is the scoring sense of Moussa Diaby and Leon Bailey. Together, they are responsible for the team’s scoring, scoring two goals in the league. 19-year-old John Duran, who scored a goal in the last game against Legia Warsaw, is also on standby. These players should be the spearhead of the attack.
Since Chelsea does not participate in European competitions, they will play the game a week after playing against Bournemouth on the 17th. I am physically relaxed and waiting for my opponent at home. It is the right time to change the mood. We must expose the instability of our defense and catch Aston Villa, who are having difficulty managing their stamina. Chelsea are looking higher, as they have made unconventional moves since the summer transfer market. Will Chelsea be able to gain three points and lay the foundation for a winning streak to move to higher places?
