    The problem of Chelsea is that of favourism & wrong changes or substitution.Azplilicueta,Mikel,Essien,Schulle ought to have started the game & not A Cole,Vanginkel,Lampard.During the second half of the game ,the removal of William was a complete blunder.Schulle would have been the right person to come in instead of Ba .l thankGod that Basel didn’t score more than 2 goals.In our next match,Please,use the following players :Azplilicueta,lvanovic,Cahil,Luiz,Mikel,Essien,Hazard,William.Eto’o & Schulle.The blues will get the best out of it.Until favouritism is totally eliminated,coupled with wrong changes & underating of player the blues will continue fall.However,the goodnews is that there is hope for the blues.Remove fear & have confidence on the players too to motivate them to enhance performance.
