Chelsea revealed many difficulties in connecting the 2nd with the 3rd Phase before a very competent Brighton defensively (and with a ball too!), who played a very good game in this first match against a new and reinforced Chelsea. From the problem of the winger being permanently in internal support, to the difficulty in attracting, varying and looking for the half spaces on the opposite side… It was a very weak Chelsea, offensively, and in the Defensive Organization it was not much better either. However, despite all the difficulties, they won and the goal that gave the 2-1 is worth watching and analyzing (not only for the gesture, but essentially for the space they found).
