Goalkeeper, defence, midfield and attack – Chelsea’s four problems against Leeds
Again, it’s worth mentioning that Chelsea looked quite good for half an hour in a competitive game on Sunday. The collapse after Mendy’s mistake ripped open some of the cracks Tuchel has been papering over recently. Koulibaly has looked like a coup of a summer signing but both of his bookings were reckless. Reece James was on the right of the back three, where he feels wasted given his capabilities as an attacking wing-back. He’s certainly a more natural fit for the position than Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
