Spanish Defenders Come to the Aid of Misfiring Blues Attackers

Frank Lampard lost his job despite winning a fourth round FA cup tie against Luton Town.

The most apparent reason behind the manager’s sacking was lack of goals despite a huge summer investment in attacking players.

The new manager’s first assignment was to guide the blues at Stamford Bridge against Burnley in an EPL match.

Thomas Tuchel opted to go with experience over the young blood preferred by his predecessor.

This saw the reinstatement to the first eleven of Marcos Alonso, Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Calum Hudson-Odoi.

The blues appeared to be in control of affairs throughout the match and ended up victorious.

Curiously, though, the goal scorers were fullbacks which was not expected by many.

The captain Azpilicueta opened the scoring on 40′ by turning in a delicious cross from Hudson-odoi.

Pulisic would turn the provider on minute 80 but it needed great expertise from the end of the decorated Marcos Alonso to convert the chance.

The Spanish left back collected the lofted pass on his chest, controlled it into position using his left knee before slamming it in past the hapless Nick Pope.

Burnley had Nick Pope to thank after he made an outrageous save to keep out a Hudson-Odoi cross that took a wicked deflection off Ben Mee.

Despite the impressive performance and clean sheet, the Blues fans are yet to determine the reasons behind their impotent attacking department.
