Jose Mourinho would do well to address these issues before the transfer window slams shut.
Chelsea opened their Premier League title defence with a shaky 2-2 home draw with Swansea City, this after Jose Mourinho had himself suggested that his Stamford Bridge side’s relative inactivity in the summer transfer window could prove ‘dangerous’ (via The Daily Mirror).
Though Chelsea romped to a Premier League title last term it’s clear that the West London side’s rivals have spent huge sums improving their squads, especially Man United, Man City and Liverpool, whilst Mourinho’s only high-profile summer signings have come in the form of a new back-up keeper, Asmir Begovic, and the loan capture of a forward who managed just four Premier League goals last season, Radamel Falcao.
Here are three weak links that could cost Chelsea their Premier League title.
There is no doubt the Brazilian is industrious and has a great engine but the wide-attacker doesn’t offer much by way of a goal threat and doesn’t weigh in with nearly enough assists.
As a guide the 26-year-old provided three assists in 36 Premier League appearances in 2014/15, Bobby Zamora provided more….
Willian’s tally of two goals is also woeful and clearly back-up option Juan Cuadrado isn’t much of an improvement and Mourinho would do well to bring in an effective wide-man before the transfer window closes.
