Chelsea ‘to’ sign Top European goal machine after 4-0 loss to Arsenal for Florida cup Final in Orlando USA
Thomas Tuchel’s Blues are HUMILIATED in Orlando after goals from Gabriel Jesus, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Sambi Lokonga help secure win over rivals ahead of new season
Arsenal scored four, Chelsea scored none. It could have been more. Those from the London’s north looked balanced, sharp and cohesive. Those from the west looked a rabble
Chelsea suffered a 4-0 defeat by rivals Arsenal in Orlando, leading to an inquest about their dismal display.
Gabriel Jesus, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Albert Sambi Lokonga all scored for Mikel Arteta’s side in a match that threatened to be a rout by half-time.
Chelsea regained some control by switching formation in the second half and through bringing on Kalidou Koulibaly for his debut, but still conceded twice more with the Gunners bombarding their goal.
They posed little threat going forward with Aaron Ramsdale not making a save in front of a record 63,811 supporters.
Not too long ago, the Chelsea head coach was sure that the hunt for a new No.9 was no longer a priority for the Blues after signing Raheem Sterling. The German believed that he had enough options to play with. He said: “We have Timo Werner as a nine, we have Kai Havertz as a nine, we have Michy Batshuayi as a number nine, we have Armando Broja as a nine and Raheem Sterling as a nine, maybe, so let’s see how things work out.”
After yet another match where his attackers struggled in front of goal, it’ll be interesting to know if Chelsea are ready to re-evaluate their priority, especially with Cristiano Ronaldo still on the market. It’s been a weird transfer window for one of the greatest footballers of all time. Ronaldo had expressed his desire to leave Manchester United quite early on in the transfer window. He is not keen on watching others play in the Champions League whilst he plays in the sister competition on a Thursday night. He is yet to play with the Red Devils this pre-season, despite several fans travelling to Bangkok, Thailand in anticipation of watching him play.
Perhaps Chelsea are in no position to be turning their noses up at Cristiano Ronaldo after all.
They can’t score, they can’t defend, they have players wanting out and they reek of complacency. Thomas Tuchel pulled no punches in his damning assessment of his team after they were crushed 4-0 by an Arsenal team preparing for the new season over an identical amount of time.
The five-time Ballon D’or winner Cristiano Ronaldo is set to leave Manchester United after becoming frustrated with the club. Chelsea has emerged as one of the favorites to sign the Portuguese forward.
According to Sky Sports, there is now a very serious possibility for one of the best players in the world to join the west London club. The Blues are currently waiting for Jorge Mendes to bring a proposal offer to see if a deal can be struck.
Manchester United are ready to let Cristiano Ronaldo leave this summer, but only on loan.
In return, United want Ronaldo to trigger his one-year option clause in his contract so he can return to the club next summer
So far Boehly has been beaten to the punch by the more experienced operators at Barcelona for Raphina and Robert Lewandowski. He has failed to tempt Nathan Ake away from Manchester City and he is struggling to see off Barca for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.
Chelsea’s thrashing at the hands of Arsenal could prompt the Blues into action as they look to bounce back from the disappointing end to last season. A move for Jules Kounde is still in progress and they have now been boosted after learning that rivals for his signature, Barcelona, have run out of cash.
Furious Chelsea fans have slammed their side on social media following the Blues’ humiliating 4-0 pre-season defeat to Arsenal in the Florida Cup.
