Norwich City 1-3 Chelsea : A brilliant debut for Willian

Posted on Updated on

Chelsea got a great win against Norwich in an exciting match were it was very intriguing until the very end.

Chelsea got a excellent start to the game when Oscar scored in the 4th minute.Ba passed the ball to  Oscar and Oscar straight away blasted the ball towards the goal.

This was the Brazilian’s 3rd goal of the season in seven games.

Norwich manager ,Chris Houghton’s decision to pack the midfield had good and bad effects.This tactic resulted in .,shots from Jonny Howson and Leroy Fer  and Robert Snodgrass but at the same time left Ricky van Wolfswinkel isolated with no support in the first half.The best moment before half time came when David Luiz took a shot from the halfway line and the ball that dropped inches from the crossbar.

The second half began with a great chance from Ramires’s low cross but Ba didn’t get proper connection at the far post to give Chelsea a confident lead.

Mourinho commented this moment: “When he missed the easy goal I smelt that they [Norwich] would score one.”

Mourinho was right about this but the equalizer did not come that soon.Before Norwich’s equalizer there was a controversial moment .Ramires made a challenge on
Anthony Pilkington which should have been a penalty and a sending off for Ramires.

Norwich got there equalizer in the 68th minute.A great combination between Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Anthony Pilkington.Pilkington scored from Wolfswinkel’s pass.This was the Irishman’s first goal of the season .

Mourinho knew he had to change something or else Chelsea could be in trouble.So he decided to bring in Eden Hazard in the for Ashley Cole in the 75th minute and Willian in the 81st minute.This proved to be a great decision from the manager.Chelsea second goal came from a Norwich corner.Chelsea managed to brake away quickly ,Willian headed the ball to Oscar and Oscar made superb pass to Hazard . Alexander Tettey lost control of the ball,Hazard got the ball and scored .Norwich goalkeeper could have done better in this situation because the shot was hit straight at him.A minute later Willian scored a magnificent goal just outside the box ,this id say this is one of the best goals so far in this season.This must one of bests debuts iv ever seen .Willian proved that he is worth the 35 million euros he was paid for during this summer,he moved from the Russian side Anzhi Makhachakala .The final score was 1-3 to Chelsea

Mourinho’s gamble had paid off. “At 1-1 we could win or lose; we lost a bit of balance to try to create. We are trying to be top so one point would be a bad result for us,” he said.
