After Chelsea’s impressive performance against Leicester, the future of a Chelsea player could be jeopardized.
On Saturday, Chelsea easily defeated Leicester City 3-0.
Chelsea’s advantage at the top of the Premier League table was extended to three points with a 3-0 win over Leicester City on Saturday. The Foxes never looked like putting a glove on the Blues, and it will be extremely difficult for any fresh talent to break into their side in the coming years.
Antonio Rudiger found himself unmarked at a corner and glanced a looping header over Kasper Schmeichel in the 14th minute, giving Tuchel’s side the lead.
N’Golo Kante, who was a crucial player in Leicester’s historic 2015-16 season, picked up the ball in midfield before racing towards goal and curling a left-footed strike into the back of the net to increase Chelsea’s advantage in the 28th minute.
In the 71st minute, the second-half substitutes collaborated when Hakim Ziyech beat his man on the right wing before teeing it back to Christian Pulisic, who scored from close range.
Given how effortlessly they eliminated a top-flight opponent in the manner of Leicester, many believe Tuchel’s side will be the team to beat this season.
Kante and Jorginho were brilliant in midfield, and they don’t appear to be changing anytime soon unless Tuchel decides to abandon his 3-4-3 formation, which is unlikely, which is terrible news for academy product Conor Gallagher.
So far this season, the midfielder has scored four goals and provided two assists in ten games for Crystal Palace.
Gallagher has also impressed England manager Gareth Southgate, who gave him his Three Lions debut against San Marino earlier this week.
Rumours have circulated in recent weeks about how the former West Brom loanee will fit into Chelsea’s team when he returns ahead of next season, with some speculating that if his future at Stamford Bridge looks like it will consist of bench-warming and five-minute cameos, he may push for a permanent move away.
