Chelsea 3-0 Crystal Palace
Goals: M. Alonso (27e), Pulisic (40e), Chalobah (58e) for the Blues
Patrick Vieira’s premiere on the Crystal Palace bench was not going to be easy. It hasn’t been.
Facing Chelsea, and deprived of several players including Eberechi Eze and Luka Milivojević, the Eagles took the broth against a Chelsea team who, like against Villarreal, took control of the game from the kick-off. The very low block set up by the French coach will have resisted until the 27e minute, at the moment Marcos Alonso saw fit to nail Guaita to the ground on a free kick delight wrapped in glasses (1-0). A quarter of an hour later, Christian Pulisic doubles the stake (2-0, 40e) by concluding a beautiful collective movement initiated by Mason Mount. 2-0 at the break, the Blues master.
The absence of N’Golo Kanté, who had however held the house in the Supercup, did not seem to harm the reigning European champions today. The break does not call into question their dominance, and Trevoh Chalobah, who could well settle in the long term in this three-way defense if he continues to disgust his vis-à-vis, dirty the addition of a dry strike. every twenty meters with the help of the upright (3-0, 58e). It was Jordan Ayew, from the head, who forced Édouard Mendy to work for the first time in the 63e minute. Without consequence for Chelsea, who will let the minutes pass quietly until the final whistle.
A plan without a hitch.
