Miami – This Premier League weekend promises to be decisive for Chelsea and Arsenal. Both English clubs have endured harsh criticism over their recent losses, and the pressure is on for the ‘blues’ boss José Mourinho and the ‘gunners’ Arsène Wenger.
This football season has been surprise-laden for the top soccer clubs in the world and the burden is on their head coaches to come up with the best tactical decisions to secure victory matches.
Chelsea gets a chance again at their home Stamford Bridge this weekend to secure a win over Southampton.
Arsenal is also facing some tough times and the pressure to win this weekend’s match against the Premier League leaders Manchester United is reportedly making Wenger pull every trick out of the hat to confront the Red Devils.
Will the Arsenal’s longest-serving manager get it together and arm his ‘gunners’ with the ‘right’ strategy to leave the Emirates with a victory? All eyes are on Wenger to bring his team out of the 3-match defeat they have had this season.
The French manager has been quoted as saying, “Every defeat is a crisis, every game is a trial,” and he is about to face trial against Van Gaal at the Emirates.
Many wonder how it is possible that Chelsea has fallen so far behind. Several sources, including the ‘blues’ squad blame their boss Mourinho over his allegedly erroneous tactical choices that have left a weakened and defeated Chelsea.
From his blowout with Dr Carneiro that almost cost him a five-match ban, his decision to exclude star players from first-team, and his unreasonable substitutions, it is believed the Chelsea’s “crisis” is Mou’s own doing.
‘The Special One’s’ situation has worsened as his reported anger and frustration have taken the best out of him, blaming and publicly shaming his players for their “poor” performance this season, the last of which their defeat to Porto, which he called “ridiculous”.
The Portuguese boss needs to leave Stamford Bridge with a victory and raise the morale and winning spirit of the ‘blues’.
