In a pulsating night at Wembley stadium, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City lifted the Carabao Cup for the second time in a row. But Chelsea FC’s woes mounted continuously as Sarri failed to control one of his players. After a 6-0 humiliation against City in the Premier League. The Blues motive was to put things right in this encounter. But a lot of insubordination by some of the team members triggered more talk of Sarri losing his managerial job.
However, there are certain key points that led to the Blues misery. We are going to highlight where exactly Chelsea FC lost the Cup Final.
Chelsea FC’s lack of Goal Threat
During the first stage of the Premier League, Chelsea FC was unbeaten for a quite number of games. But they didn’t score a chunk of goals. That kind of form followed them in the season. They went on to loan Juventus’ top striker, Gonzalo Higuain and Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud, to beef up the strike force but to no avail. Players such as Pedro, Willian and Hazard have the same style of play and all of them are not strikers. Therefore that’s one of the reasons why Chelsea couldn’t find the back of the net against Manchester City.
Kepa Arrizabalaga Refusing Substitution
Chelsea’s positive momentum in the last hour of the encounter against was eroded by Kepa’s refusal to come off. The young goalkeeper was suffering from cramps. It is quite understandable that Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri wanted him out so that Willy Caballero the penalty hero against Liverpool last season could save the day. But the Spanish international thought otherwise. The drama unfolded when Sarri realised he has been disobeyed.
However, Chelsea’s former captain John Terry felt like Sarri has lost control of the players. And he might be on his way out of the Bridge. However, what we can only do is play online casino games and wait to see Sarri’s fate.
