The English Premier League is well underway, and the league table is already taking shape after 12 games. Many bettors are regularly tuning in to online live casino in Malaysia to check the odds of upcoming games. Also, sports fans are already seeing how their team might end up after the season. And no other fan base right now is happier than the supporters of Chelsea FC, which is currently standing tall at the top of the standings.
The Blues are three points ahead of defending champions Manchester City at the league table, but they already showed why they could win their 6th Premier League title. Chelsea is mainly using a 3-4-2-1 formation, anchored by midfielders Frello Jorginho and N’Golo Kante. Both players are very capable of helping the defenders at the backline and making creative chances for their strikers.
Apart from that, Chelsea’s youth movement keeps on improving and providing solid minutes for the team. Right-back Reece James currently leads the team in goals this season, already scoring five, and helps defend the best strikers of the opposing team. Furthermore, young guns Kai Havertz and Mason Mount already contributed a combined seven goals for the London-based club.
As a team, Chelsea already scored a total of 30 goals in 12 games, which is already more than half of their total goals last season. Their defense, led by Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, along with goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, who already tallied seven clean sheets, have only allowed four goals in all games, which is currently the best in the league.
One factor that also contributed to Chelsea’s success this season is the return of Romelu Lukaku, one of the top strikers in the world right now. Lukaku returned to Chelsea after two splendid seasons with Inter Milan and formed a deadly scoring duo with Timo Werner. Lukaku is currently at 20th place in Premier League’s all-time leading goal scorers, after impressive stints with Everton and Manchester United.
If there’s one thing that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is good at, it is bringing the best out of his players to achieve success in any team he manages, proven by their championship run at 2021 Champions League. The players he currently has at the club are some reasons why The Blues can win the Premier League this season.
