Cole Palmer reveals his analysis of Chelsea’s win over Tottenham, which was interesting . There he noted down exactly what his team had had to go to get through their rivals’ unique defensive strategy. This was after they were reduced to ten and then nine men:
It’s definitely easier to play against nine men, but on the other hand we knew we needed to win the game when they went down to 10 men. Then when they went down to nine especially, we knew we needed to score, to keep pressing, to keep making the runs in behind because their line was so high,” he said in an interview on the club’s official website.
“‘It can be difficult when the line’s so high and you need to make runs in behind. They maintained the line very well to be fair to them, so it was difficult, but as it went on we figured out how to get in behind. The coaches just said to us at half-time to keep pushing and the chances will come. We knew that and we’re just glad we took them.”
It’s quite interesting for a player to provide such insights to the media after the match as we don’t get to see these kind of things much often.
