Arthur Masuaku’s superb 87th Minute goal breaks Chelsea’s winning Ego in West Ham 3:2 victory.
Chelsea FC under the managerial administration of Thomas Tuchel has been highly talked about. With impressive tactics, down to the energetic display of the team members during playing time.
However, Tuchel’s side should be very careful in their execution and concentration during games if they want to remain strong contenders for the Premier League Title.
There are clearly seen errors during matches that would have been avoided, but the players took things for granted and such incidence caused a lot of harm than good. I hope there is a lesson to learn from their mistakes?
Mason Mount wonder strike and Thiago Silva heroic goal countered by Arthur Masuaku freak goal, earns his side 3:2 victory against the Blues.
According to TalkSport, the Hammers edged a thrilling contest thanks to what appeared to be a deflected cross from Masuaku in the 87th minute, which caught Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and the entire London Stadium by surprise.
Only Masuaku will know if he meant it and replays suggest there’s a chance it was deliberate.
David Moyes’ side twice came from behind against an uncharacteristically sloppy Blues side, with Manuel Lanzini cancelling out Thiago Silva’s early header after Mendy conceded an unnecessary penalty.
Mason Mount restored the visitors’ lead with a beautiful first-time volley, before Jarrod Bowen brought West Ham level with a fierce effort from range.
But in a game full of outrageous goals, Masuaku will steal the headlines. The left-back appeared to be lining up a cross from deep, but it deflected off Ruben Loftus-Cheek and snuck past Mendy at his near post.
The Blues goalkeeper endured an uncharacteristically sloppy afternoon – and was at fault for the first West Ham goal.
After Silva opened the scoring and cleared one off the line, Mendy was left short by a Jorginho back pass and then dispossessed by Jarrod Bowen, who was chopped down for a clear penalty.
And on commentary for talkSPORT, Dean Ashton could not understand why Mendy didn’t clear the danger when he had the chance.
“Yes, it was a bad back pass. He put the keeper under pressure,” Ashton said.
“But there’s nothing wrong with kicking it out! This obsession with current goalkeepers who can’t see the picture of kicking it out under severe pressure.”
Manuel Lanzini converted the spot-kick, but Mount quickly restored the Blues’ lead with a volley from another planet.
