A ‘Simple’ Dinner

Match Summary: Chelsea 4-0 Preston North End
The game was palpably one-sided as Chelsea were clearly in control of the game and gave the visitors little to no room to catch a breather. In total, they managed to rack up 24 shots in the entire game as opposed to Preston’s mere 4.
However, it took the hosts an hour to break the deadlock, courtesy of Armando Broja. Subsequently, it was raining goals as Thiago Silva and Raheem Sterling made it 3-0 within ten minutes. Enzo Fernandez also joined in on the mayhem in the dying minutes of the game to add more salt to Preston’s wounds, making it 4-0 at full-time.
Raheem Sterling was declared as the man of the match with a goal and an assist to his name. The former Man City winger was all over Preston’s defense having recorded a total of 83 touches and racking up a passing accuracy of 91%. He troubled Freddie Woodman, Preston’s keeper on 3 different occasions with one of them having the ball go past him.
Injury Update: Christopher Nkunku
Chelsea’s gaffer, Mauricio Pochetino recently revealed that their marquee signing Christopher Nkunku has suffered another knock to his knee which would further set him out for a few more weeks. Speaking of the situation, he says:
“It’s really tough. The circumstances are really tough from the beginning of the season. Broja, Nkunku, Lavia, sometimes it is difficult to explain for the fans.
“Like Nkunku, we don’t want to put pressure on him, because we know after a long time injured always it is difficult to come back and start to perform. After six months away from the competition it is always tough.”
He continued: “Now he wasn’t involved because he suffered some problem in his hip after training yesterday and now we need to check and see if it will be possible for him to be ready for the next few games.
“That is the problem, they need game time to get their best and sometimes we cannot provide this game time to players who need to feel the competition, because in the end we are Chelsea, we need to win.”
