Poch has already solved four major Chelsea problem that Thomas Tuchel couldn’t
Levi Colwill has been favored on the left side of defense for Chelsea this season, particularly due to the unavailability of Ben Chilwell. Chilwell’s injury against Brighton left Chelsea short of full-back options, with Malo Gusto suspended and Reece James recovering from injury. Colwill has stepped up in this situation and provided an assist with a well-executed pass to Mykhailo Mudryk in a match against Fulham.
Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea’s manager, has been content with Colwill’s performances in this role. Colwill’s positioning as a left-back has also given Pochettino an easier decision regarding his pecking order and rotation, especially when considering Badiashile’s return.
Despite missing Chilwell’s talent, Chelsea has prepared for matches without him, and Colwill has shown his ability to deputize effectively on the left. Conor Gallagher has also emerged as a valuable member of Chelsea’s starting lineup, often wearing the captain’s armband. Chelsea’s left flank, featuring Colwill and Mudryk, is evolving and presenting challenges to opponents, showcasing their potential to become a significant part of the team’s attack.
