The year 2016-17 has ended with a great flare and excitement where the fans waited for the last 3 matches to raise their glasses for celebration in support of their teams. Though it’s too early to predict who is going to win this season but the last year champions Chelsea and Real Madrid had a rocky start this season.
Chelsea who was last year favourite and clear winner as shown by odds at NetBet won before the League ended. This year Chelsea is currently at no. three with Mourinho’s Red army and Pep Guardiola’s team transcended them with great margin. Antonio Conte’s blue army third position has been justified by many news channels as their unstable squad this season and Hazard absentee in the first few matches. But we all know that these are just excuses that will change its face with more wins and rising of Chelsea ranking on the table. In recent news it has been confirmed that Antonio Conte is all set to release David Luis from his duty’s at the club following his bad performance during Chelsea’s 3-3 draw with Roma in the Champions League in October.
The frustration of not winning matches even in home game has been shown in the players too as Gary Cahil overtly condemned Chelsea efforts after home game draw against Arsenal last month.
He said, “It was frustrating in some ways. Obviously we wanted to win the game, but if we weren’t going to win, it was important we didn’t lose. It’s a good point.”
“We tried to create. We have created more in recent games, but we were playing against good opposition. There were a couple of chances for either side. We had that Pedro chance early on, but it was cagey.”
“It felt frustrating because we were trying and trying, but they defended well and limited us to a few chances. We had a lot of the ball but couldn’t quite open them up.”
“It was a good, competitive London derby. I don’t think there was too much in the game. Late on it was opening up, and maybe we could have nicked the win then, but it wasn’t to be.”
“We want to win every home game. We feel we have the ability to go for three points every time we play here, and we tried to do that, but we take the point.”
When great teams crumble, the diagnosis is often complex. Real Madrid the fairy Tale runner of last season won had won the previous year’s Laliga and Champions League and became the first team to hold the Champions League for two times in a row have fallen eight points off the top of La Liga after 10 rounds and is currently at No. 4 on the Table. They failed to win any of their opening three home games for the first time since 1995. They had lost at Girona, their first defeat to a top-tier debutant since 1990. There are many reasons that Real is lagging in its effort this season such as Wastefulness in goalscoring, Defenders are not scoring, Too relaxed after a splendid last season, Players caring for their personal respect and scoring.
Though the season has arrived as a dungeon for both team but the two teams are no less than a dungeon master and are capable of turning the table on their side at any time.
