“Minimum one change” – Some Chelsea fans demand changes after tepid first half » Chelsea News

Chelsea have just finished the first half against Sevilla, and they’ve basically been outplayed.

The Spanish side were dominant for large periods of the game without threatening much, while Chelsea have had some dangerous moments despite not stringing together any decent attacking moves.

On Twitter, some were saying things were bad enough to require half time changes.

Some wanted Mason Mount off, as he was playing out of position and looked tired. Other said the yellow carded Jorginho should make way. There was a further strand of argument that Christian Pulisic looked not at his best after returning from injury at the weekend, and could be a candidate for replacement. A “minimum of one change” was what some demanded.

With Hakim Ziyech on the bench, it’s hard to imagine Lampard will hold off long. Tammy Abraham could get a call soon too.

5 subs available, I’d make minimum 1 change at HT. I’d take Mount out, who’s being asked to play a position he isn’t & has a yellow, and put Ziyech in & move Pulisic to his natural LW.

And maybe Jorginho out for Kova because the former has made me nervous w/ some challenges.

Christian Pulisic a long way from his best in his first few performances since coming back from a hamstring injury. Him playing on the right might be part of it. Most of Chelsea’s wide men prefer the…
