A free kick decided the game. In the first half of extra time, Southampton had a free kick opportunity. The kicker is James Ward-Prowse, who is considered the best free kicker in the league. Ward-Prowse shook Chelsea’s net with his sharp free kick. Kepa Arrizabala reached for the goalkeeper, but the ball was sucked out of reach.
Chelsea had plenty of time to turn the game around. At the start of the second half, Chelsea stepped up their attack by putting in Raheem Sterling. Afterwards, Mihailo Mudrik, Kai Havertz, and Connor Gallagher were added to put weight on the attack. However, despite the aggressive use of substitutions, Chelsea failed to score. Even the place where the game was held was Stamford Bridge, the home ground of Chelsea.
As a result, Chelsea has been winless in the last 5 games, including 4 league games and the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL). The record is 3 draws and 2 losses. Manager Porter, who was criticized for poor performances since his appointment, is now being criticized, not criticized. There is a big reason why there seems to be no possibility of improvement and no will to improve.
Porter’s press conference fueled this situation. After the game, Coach Porter said, “Because of the UCL, some changes were necessary. We had to consider the current team’s situation and injuries, and if we make these changes, it may be difficult to deal with a well-prepared team.” It was pointed out that it had an impact on the outcome of the game.
Upon hearing this, Agbonrahor was furious. Agbonlaher, who is active as a soccer expert at ‘Torque Sports’ in England, said of Porter’s remarks, “If you look at the interview after the match, Coach Porter should be fired. Are you complaining about starting Felix? Are you kidding?”
