Thiago Silva and Benoit Badiashile drop huge statements ahead of Man City Clash; What they said.
Chelsea might be needing all the motivation they might need to get a win against Man City today and this will not be out of context as I believe they could win this evening.
Silva and the new man for Chelsea Badishile has dropped a hint following the crucial meeting this evening and this is what they said;
Badiashile, has hinted that he could be involved against Pep Guardiola side; the young defender could give his new club the edge they need.
Speaking to football.london, the Blues boss said: Not especially, no. We try to go day to day improving, working on how we can get the team better.
“I acknowledge the team hasn’t functioned as well as we would like it to and there are lots of reasons for that. I can’t sit here and say I’m a perfect person so clearly I’ve not done everything completely right.
.”At the same time, there are some factors that take into consideration where we’re at. That’s for other people to judge and have any perspective on or not. For me, it’s about how we can keep improving and at the end of the season, you assess what happened.”
The Chelsea boss said: “I think this is the challenge for everybody. I don’t think I’d have left my previous job [at Brighton] if I didn’t feel there was a chance the owners would give us support.
“They are absolutely in line with where we’re at and what we’re trying to do. I’m more confident now that we can achieve things than I was when I started the job because I understand the club, the players, and what’s needed.
“Obviously, with the past at Chelsea and changes of management, you can see why the questions are being asked. But like I said, I’ve been here four months and if people are going to judge me on those terms – when you consider how many games we’ve had and the challenges we’ve had – that is fine.
“I can give you a counter-argument in terms of my career and in terms of what I’ve achieved, and people in the game that consider my quality. But I also know that people will dislike it for whatever reason. All I know is I’ve got the total support of the guys above, the players and the staff.”
While Badiashile, Silva and Koulibaly posting graphic previews of the City fixture on their social media profiles does not necessarily mean both will start, it historically suggests that they will be involved in some capacity. Follow live coverage of the game in our blog here.
