When the two teams are about to face each other, the German strategist admits that he is inferior to Tottenham
The London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, which takes place at Stamford Bridge Stadium, is the highlight of the Premier League’s second round. In the first match, both teams performed admirably. If the Blues defeated Everton 1-0 in the first match, Spurs destroyed Southampton 4-1.
Antonio Conte’s squad has been bolstered by the additions of Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, and Djed Spence. After assisting Tottenham to a top-four finish last season, the former Inter Milan captain has earned the leadership’s trust.
Coach Thomas Tuchel stated in a pre-match interview: “Tottenham took advantage of a calm and shoulder pre-season to strengthen their squad very early. They have a distinct role in their system.
That’s what they did, so Tottenham appears to be a little ahead of us at the start, but that doesn’t mean you win the race.”
The Blues are also in a good place under their new owner. They parted ways with Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Romelu Lukaku, and Timo Werner, but they also had quality alternatives in Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Marc Cucurella.
It only took 36 minutes for the former Chelsea striker to score.
A few days ago, striker Timo Werner completed his transfer from Chelsea to RB Leipzig for a fee of 20 million euros (including surcharges).
The striker stated on the day he arrived in Germany: “I am overjoyed to be able to play for RB Leipzig once more. I’ve had a fantastic time here. I’m excited because both I and the club have grown in the last two years. I want to accomplish a lot, including becoming the first Leipzig player to score 100 goals.”
Werner played only 15 Premier League games last season and was regarded as an afterthought at Chelsea. It’s worth noting that the Stamford Bridge team had to spend up to 56 million euros to bring him back to London two years ago.
Werner opened fire today in RB Leipzig’s debut match in the first round of the Bundesliga. It only took him 36 minutes to give up goalkeeper Marvin Schwabe of Koln. Werner also has to thank teammate Benjamin Henrichs for a clear assist.
This will almost certainly be a goal to relieve the German striker’s psychological burden. Werner was the top scorer in the Bundesliga before joining Chelsea, with 91 goals in 222 appearances for Leipzig and Stuttgart. After two years with Chelsea, the player has made 89 appearances and scored 23 goals.
