The pair of defensive stats that should worry Chelsea as fans call out for one man

Chelsea ship 6 in two games

Chelsea continued on their worrying downwards trajectory as Thomas Tuchel’s side conceded a last-minute equaliser to draw 3-3 with Zenit st Petersburg, and throw away their group winning spot in the process.

Poor throughout, a much-changed Chelsea were perhaps lucky not to concede more, with a trio of world-class stops from Kepa keeping the score respectable.

It looked as though they had got away with their poor performance when Timo Werner fired home his second, and Chelsea’s third, ten minutes from time. However, Zenit hit back in the dying embers of the game, leaving Chelsea facing potential clashes with one of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Ajax, or whoever wins group G (One of Lille, RB Salzburg and Sevilla).

This draw follows a period in the Premier League where they have taken just 4 from a possible nine points, with a flukey win over Watford sandwiched between a draw with Manchester United and a defeat to West Ham.

And, now a pair of stats have emerged that show just how much the Blues are struggling. Indeed, tonight marked the second highest expected goals conceded by Tuchel’s side since he took charge 11 months ago, and was only the second time that the normally watertight defence had conceded more than 2 expected goals.

In real terms too, the draw marked the first time since 2019, when Tuchel was in charge of PSG, that a side coached by him has conceded three or more goals in consecutive games.

And Chelsea fans think they have the answer to this problem.

Sign Kounde, Chelsea fans beg

After the game, Blues fans took to Twitter en-masse to demand the signing of one man. Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, who they missed out on in the summer.

Would he have made a difference tonight?
