1) Proper Tactics/ Team Selection:
Graham Potter switched to a back four against Crystal Palace, a brave call as other managers have employed a 3-4-2-1 at Chelsea. However, the 4-2-3-1 helped his side dominate the game and secure the midfield which was extremely vital to their win. It allowed for the inclusion of Connor Gallagher as a late substitute, and he came in to win the game for Chelsea with a superb screamer.
2) Incredible Substitutions:
Potter’s substitutions were exceptional, as he was able to influence the result with the players he had on the bench. He surprised Patrick Vieira and ended his win-less spell against Crystal Palace. Chelsea are now 5th on the premier league standings, an incredible feat that should be celebrated given how this season has panned out.
