Chelsea are extremely lucky to be coming away from the Czech Republic with an advantage over Slavia Prague, the Blues weren’t at the races and snatched a win thanks to Marcos Alonso.

The Blues looked extremely underwhelming this evening and Slavia Prague should be proud of their performance, the side who are often labelled as ‘not even the best side from Prague’ – showed great character tonight. The side demonstrated good pressing and aggression, which certainly threw Chelsea’s heavily rotated side off their gameplan.

Heading into the second-leg, Slavia have earned Chelsea’s respect and the Blues can’t treat them as pushover – that was nearly their downfall today.

Take a look at the goal here.

It looks as though Chelsea are struggling to maintain a certain intensity and Sarri-ball seems to be too possession based, the slow tempo and style of play often sees the Blues let games pass them by far too easily.
