Thiago Silva’s carelessness and blunder Pressure on Mauricio Pochettino increases after the dismissal of Malo Gusto
After another loss at home, the Blues are still languishing in the Premier League’s cellar.
The 1-0 loss to Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Sunday extended Chelsea’s winless streak in the Premier League to three games. It was a close game throughout, with Blues players like Nicolas Jackson, Mykhailo Mudryk, and Raheem Sterling working hard to get through the organized Villa defense, but ultimately failing.
The second half was going well until Malo Gusto was sent off for a tackle on Lucas Digne. After consulting the video assistant referee, the original yellow card for the defender was changed to a red.
Fifteen minutes later, Villa scored their first goal of the season thanks to the visitors’ аggressive play after Thiago Silva made a terrible mistake in the middle of the field and gifted possession to the Villans.The heat on Mauricio Pochettino and the Blues’ pricey signings is increasing after a winless start to the Premier League season (they have played six games so far).
Robert Sanchez, Defensive Back and Goalkeeper, 7/10:
Made some spectacular save to keep Villa off the board in the first half, and kept his composure in the second.
Sub-par Taste Rating:
Had been a threаt on the right wing, but was red carded for a needless foul on Digne.
To paraphrase Axel Disasi (6/10):
He thought he scored with a minute left in the first half, but he was offside. The defense appeared to be fine.
Thiago Silva, 5 out of 10:
Had been strong defensively, making many crucial clearances and blocks, but his miscue allowed Villa to advance and score.
This is a six-out-of-ten rating for Levi Colwill:
Defended well against Diaby while playing the left back position for Chelsea.Midfield5/10 Conor Gallagher:
Occasionally showed promise, but often neglected the middle of the field.
Moises Caicedo, rating: (6/10)
Played a key role in Chelsea’s оffensive аttаck and had the team’s first shot on goal.
In the words of Enzo Fernandez (6/10):
Tried to integrate with the attackers and play at a high level, but to no avail.Raheem Sterling under аttаck (6/10):
Disappointing showing! appeared promising but fell short in execution owing to indecision, poor choices, or a lack of will in the face of Villa’s pressure. The team could have benefited from an early second-half goal.
Nicolás Jackson, 5 out of 10
He was only a real dаnger to the Villa defense when Chelsea played quickly and threw him in behind the line.
6/10 For Mykhailo Mudryk:
Dangerous passes and crosses showed off his creativity and ability to set up his teammates Jackson and Enzo.Ben Chilwell, manager, and substitutes (7/10):
Substituted in after Gusto’s dismissal; nearly scored on a fantastic low cross that was cleared by Villa. Also had an attempt blocked by Martinez.
Arrived with 20 minutes to go but did not contribute anything.
When asked to rate Cole Palmer, Cole gave a 6/10.
After a wonderful pass to Sterling created an opening for the winger, the ball was played on to Disasi, but the defender blasted his shot well over the crossbar.
5/10 – Armando Broja:
I only now got started, so pardon my tardy introduction.
Pochettino, Mauricio (5/10):
There were a few bright spots for his club, but they weren’t able to win on their own turf. Attackers were too easily separated and unable to launch a coordinated series of attacks.
