CHE 2-1 AME: 3 Best Players From the Game as Chelsea Win its First Pre-Season Match

Published

on

Chelsea team began their 2022/23 preseason with a 2-1 victory against Club America.

Players spent the most of the first half attempting to recover full fitness. Thiago Silva had the finest opportunity in the first half, prompting Jose Francisco Jiménez to make a great save.

Timo Werner scored from Reece James’ cross as Chelsea began the second half on the offensive. James then scored at the other end to equalise for Club America, but with eight minutes remaining, Mason Mount produced a thunderbolt from beyond the box to give Chelsea the victory.

This victory will provide the team with much-needed momentum as they approach the start of the new season.

Chelsea dominated second-half quality and adventurous play. The stadium was air-conditioned.

We barely scored a few times due to sloppy finishing. Timo Werner’s shot, after his first effort was blocked by Michy Batshuayi, was the only one to beat the goalkeeper in the second half, until Mason Mount scored in the last ten minutes to give Chelsea the win in the FC Series summer exhibition opener.

Chelsea began with a familiar structure but different personnel. Kenedy sometimes played right wingback. Ben Chilwell started on the other flank and looked rusty. Barkley and Gallagher held down midfield despite not being holding midfielders. Gallagher was key to Chelsea’s first-half success. Thiago Silva’s defence was good, while Callum Hudson-Odoi and Hakim Ziyech’s assault was insipid.

Michy Batshuayi, Christian Pulisic, and Jorginho missed numerous golden opportunities for Chelsea. Offside saved Batshuayi’s blushes as he missed a 1-v-1 breakaway. Mount’s moment of brilliance was enough to help César Azpilicueta, Ethan Ampadu, and Emerson (together with Marcos Alonso on the left) maintain the fort.

Preseason results don’t count. Win or lose, it’s about minutes, fitness, and making a “statement” Today, some did it, others didn’t. It’s wonderful to win in Vegas.
