Chelsea 2020/21 Season preview
Where next for Chelsea?
Improve their defence, improve the squad and keep existing players happy. This may prove to be a difficult task with the number of new players brought in. Chelsea will need to find the balance with their existing players and their new players. Bringing in so many players will take time for it to gel.
What is the biggest challenge facing Lampard?
Manage increased expectations due to spending a lot of money on good players. The Integration of the new players will take time. Chelsea will need to keep consistency throughout the season and improve on last seasons 4th place finish and win Silverware.
Reasons for fans to get excited and nervous
The players that they have bought in (Werner, Zyiech, and Harvets) If these settle in quickly and have the impact expected of them and the defensive issues addressed. Chelsea will be an exciting and formidable team.
If it’s not addressing the defensive issues and new players not settling in and in some cases, not making the impact expected of them. A lot of money as being spent, and it appears more is going to be spent, and this will increase the pressure on them to succeed.
Prediction for their season Premier League:
Chelsea needs to start well, and remain consistent, which will be put to the test this season due the expectations and the lack of managerial experience of Lampard of football at this level. Chelsea to finish 5th.
Who will be their key player?
Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kanté are crucial players for Chelsea as they keep it simple and breaks up play and allow the flare players to be creative. They are not big names, but they will enable the big names to flourish and score the goals.
