Many sports bettors, enthusiasts, and online gaming Singapore clients are hyped up as the 2021/22 English Premier League (EPL) include Chelsea F.C. in the list—the top football club with one loss and one draw out of eight matches as of writing.
Currently on the sixth, Manchester United is one of the most talked-about teams whose winning is possible due to many factors (Ronaldo’s return is one). However, the team already has two draws and two losses in their record.
The teams that are competing for the title, given the situation, are Chelsea, Liverpool, and Man City. The common factor? We’ll answer in the discussion below:
The Midfield Pivot
Under Thomas Tuchel, former manager of Borussia Dortmund and PSG, Chelsea has primarily used a three-at-the-back formation. This formation requires a midfield pivot in the front of the defenders. Jorginho and N’Golo Kante did this last season.
Jorginho was often victim to his physical weakness, but Tuchel has effectively hidden his defensive deficiencies. After winning the Champions League with Chelsea, Jorginho was able to show his talent thanks to Tuchel.
Kante, meanwhile, is a well-respected midfielder who is considered one of the tops in the world. Kante is a ball-winning prodigy, and his ability to pass the ball has been vastly improved. He also developed the ability to dribble in tight spaces under Tuchel.
Kante and Jorginho can be a compliment, and they can dominate any player in the middle.
The Younger Players Keep on Improving
During the 2019/20 season of the EPL, Chelsea managed to finish fourth under the supervision of Frank Lampard. He handed Mason Mount and Reece James first-team debuts and are now Chelsea’s mainstays.
Chelsea’s brood of young players: Havertz, Sterling, Hudson-Odoi, Callum, and Christensen are improving though it is still a long way from reaching their peak performances.
After the departure of Diego Costa in 2017, Chelsea lacked a striker in the team, which Lukaku—the 28-year-old striker can provide once signed up for Chelsea. His current rank in the all-time EPL as goalscorer is on the 20th spot and is currently maintaining his career.
Chelsea has many outstanding players and an experienced manager who gave them the taste of success after delivering the Champions League title. Their chances of winning will increase with the continued improvement of their younger players and the possible introduction of Lukaku. The club managed by Tuchel has a high probability of dominating the Premier League over the next five seasons.
Chelsea’s current standing and the talent of their players may cause sports bettors to favor the team in online live casino in Malaysia and Singapore soccer fixtures where they are competing.
