“Got sloppy in possession” – Complacent Chelsea have some fans spooked despite 1-0 lead

Chelsea have made it to halftime with the lead against Newcastle, but they could and should be so much more comfortable.

They’ve had a couple of chances, and a couple of near misses, that would have made things so much easier for them, and fans on social media are frustrated and fearful that their team will be made to pay for their wastefulness.

This game is so comfortable that Frank Lampard’s team are starting to get sloppy, and if they carry on like this they’re certain to drop points.

The manager needs to restore order at half time, and another goal or two are essential early in the second period. As plenty pointed out, Chelsea “got sloppy in possession” and let the home team back into a game they had no business being part of.

Let’s hope they sort things out at the break.
