‘Not good enough’ – Chelsea fans react to Ben Chilwell’s underwhelming display against Leeds United – Talk Chelsea

The German tactician opted to deploy a back four instead of three in a 4-3-3 formation that saw Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen and Chilwell take charge.

Chelsea’s defensive structure wasn’t at the best of its abilities, as we witnessed a back three fair much better in previous matches.

The second half saw Chelsea go close to conceding from Rodrigo’s free header and Raphinha’s 56th minute shot.

One man the Chelsea fans were disappointed with, was left-back Ben Chilwell. His performance was comparatively underwhelming when compared to his compatriots. Thomas Tuchel even made his thoughts known by yelling Chilwell to ‘be more serious’ during the match.

Chilwell recorded a disappointing 45 passes with 66.7% passing accuracy, the lowest among the back four. He also made 3 tackles in total and the least number of clearances (1) throughout the match.

Surprisingly he made the highest number of interceptions (4) among his defensive mates. (
