Frank Lampard’s Chelsea is in the Premier League’s Big Four

Facts always talk a lot with Frank Lampard’s young squad. One of Chelsea’s young talents is Tammy Abraham, who has scored 9 goals. Only one goal difference from current Premier League top scorer, Jamie Vardy with 10 goals. Abraham’s brilliant goal in the five minutes of action at Vicarage Road was the seventh goal in an away match or the 9th goal overall.

Chelsea’s appearance in Week 11 is still amazing when they managed to defeat the host Watford 2-1 at Vicarage Road, Watford. The game has been running for 5 minutes and Tammy Abraham scored one goal following an accurate pass from Jorginho. One other goal Christian Pulisic shot in the 55th minute was an assist from Abraham. But finally the host managed to reduce the score to 1-2 minutes to 80 from Gerard Deulofeu’s penalty.

According to data reported, Frank Lampard is the second manager in Chelsea FC history to win seven away games in a row in all competitions, after Bobby Campbell, in February-April 1989. With this victory Chelsea managed to jump to 4th place with 23 points. Actually they have the same points with Leicester in position 3 but Chelsea lost on goal difference, a surplus of 19 goals versus 8 goals.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard welcomed the victory with joy. “I enjoyed and watched us play very well. I am blessed with players with good talent. I want this team to have a lot of energy and be hard to resist. I want us to move the ball quickly, I want us not to be easily guessed.” Game statistics show Chelsea’s dominance even though they are guests of Watford. Ball possession of 67 percent with an area level of 52 percent is a reflection of Chelsea’s dominance over Watford.

Chelsea’s 4-2-3-1 formation places pivot duo Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic. This duet really is very creative in maintaining the balance of the team’s transition. They complement each other in an empty area and sometimes spread toward two wings. Chelsea’s first goal is proof of Jorginho’s foresight to give the right pass to the penalty area that was cleverly exploited by Abraham.

While Willian and Pulisic operate from the wing with the support of the Mason Mount hole attackers. They support a total of single attacker Tammy Abraham. They were very close in working together as evidenced when the assistant Tammy Abaraham was able to be utilized as a goal by Pulisic. Looking at Chelsea’s performance that night it looks like the victory will continue when they host Crystal Palace in Week 12 at Stamford Bridge. Competition in the top 4 will be tighter between Manchester City (25 points), Leicester (23 points) and Chelsea (23 points) when they will compete next week.
