‘Two strikers out’ Director Porter “We have to overcome any storm”￼
Graham Porter (48), Chelsea manager, has made a firm determination despite the bad news of injury.
Chelsea lost 0-1 to Manchester City in the 19th round of the Premier League in the 2022-2023 season held at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 6th (Korean time). Chelsea, who received a blow at home, stayed in 10th place with 7 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses, with 25 points.
The bad news of the injury at the beginning of the game was painful. Raheem Sterling suffered a sore ankle in the first minute and was replaced by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. In the 16th minute of the first half, Christian Pulisic suffered an ankle problem due to an opponent’s tackle during the shooting process, and he was also replaced by Kani Chuquemeca and left the field.
Still, Chelsea played a great game in the first half, but lost momentum in the second half. In the end, Chelsea gave the opening goal to Riyad Mahrez in the 18th minute of the second half and knelt down as it was.
“Considering the fact that we lost Sterling and Pulisic so early, the players gave everything. I’m proud,” he said.
“It’s hard but you have to admit it. We have to stick together. It’s disappointing to lose players, but the players on the pitch and the substitutes gave their all. That was all you could ask for.” 메이저사이트
Coach Porter also praised the youth players who were brought in as a surprise. “We can’t complain (about the injury list). We have to get through it. Young players like Lewis Hall and Omari Hutchinson have shown everything and done what they asked for. Manchester City don’t give us many chances,” he said.
“We had to change the game, but Hall and Hutchinson are young players just starting out and Connor Gallagher gave it his all. It’s nice to have guys like that on the bench.”
Finally, Porter said, “There’s always accountability, but I want people to look at the overall context and see where we are and what we’ve had to deal with. You have to weather any storm and try to keep your composure. The crowd was behind the team and they were I could see everything they did,” he added.
