Unsolved Chelsea, catch West Ham and signal a rebound?￼
Chelsea, who poured a lot of money in the transfer market, are trying to rebound with a luxury corps.
Chelsea will play an away game against West Ham in the ‘2022-23 English Premier League’ at London Stadium on the 11th (Korean time).
Chelsea succeeded in signing Enzo Fernandes from Benfica just before the winter transfer window closed last month. The transfer fee was 121 million euros (approximately 161.8 billion won), the highest ever in the Premier League.
It wasn’t just this. As soon as the winter transfer window opened, Chelsea poured 70 million euros into signing Mikhailo Mudrik, and just before the start of this season, in the summer transfer window, Wesley Popana (80.4 million euros), Mark Cucurella (65.3 million euros), Raheem Sterling (56.2 million euros), Benoit Badiacil, Kalidou Koulibaly (more than 38 million euros), etc.
In addition, he succeeded in building a powerful double squad by bringing in resources with high name value through low-cost or rental recruitment methods such as Pierre Emeric Aubameyang and Joao Felix. 토토사이트
As a result, the amount Chelsea spent in the summer and winter transfer markets was a whopping 611.49 million euros (about 818.7 billion won), which is the highest ever spent by soccer clubs around the world in one season.
The problem is that there are too many beads to thread. Since there are only 11 players who can play, head coach Graham Porter has to wisely distribute the playing time to calm the players’ dissatisfaction.
Chelsea are currently 30 days on points and are still in ninth place in the league. In order to make full use of the thick squad and calm the dissatisfaction of the players, it is very important to participate in the European club competition next season, but with the current ranking, it is impossible to guarantee a trip to the Europa Conference League, let alone the Champions League.
This match against West Ham is an important match for Chelsea to find a clue to rebound. Chelsea have been sluggish with 1 win, 2 draws and 2 losses in the last 5 matches, and in the last 3 matches, starting with a win against Crystal Palace, they recorded a draw against Liverpool and Fulham.
The stumbling block is that the performance is still not improving. In particular, in the match against Fulham, Enzo Fernandez boasted a splendid lineup, but in terms of organization, his hands and feet were still exposed.
It is Chelsea who has to work hard for the rest of the schedule, whether the thick squad will remain as a bead that has not been threaded and will not lead to the worst investment.
