Chelsea’s defensive frailties exposed against West Bromwich Albion

Chelsea's defence needs to wake up and address their problems.

Thiago Silva

It’s easy to say Chelsea have made reinforcements this summer. The club has invested significantly in the transfer window. However questions maybe asked about their defence. Still.

Chelsea signed Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr for free. Moreover they have recruited Ben Chilwell from Leicester City. However Chelsea are finding it difficult to maintain a clean sheet.

Chelsea’s defence needs to get up

Ben Chilwell

The blues conceded 3 goals against West Bromwich Albion. A Thiago Silva mistake led to the second goal. However the first goal as well came from a sloppy back pass from Marcos Alonso. They will need Chilwell back soon at the left back position. Alonso has made a lot of mistakes recently.

Kurt Zouma

The back line of Chelsea needs to wake up. They’ve conceded far too many goals. A Christensen red card cost them the match against Liverpool. Kurt Zouma needs to start every match. Pairing Jim up with Thiago Silva will be a good option for Chelsea.

Kepa Arrizabalaga

Moreover it doesn’t help with the form Kepa Arrizabalaga is at. The Spanish goalkeeper has had a nightmare start to the season. He had continued with last year’s horror show. Eduoard Mendy now in will hope to give some confidence to the Chelsea defence.

In Reece James Chelsea have a promising right back. However they need to wake up before it’s too long. Chelsea have quality no doubt. However it’s time for them to perform on the pitch and show it.
