Chelsea, more so than any other Premier League club, cannot wait for the 2022–23 season to end
The playing staff has undergone a significant amount of turnover over the course of two transfer windows, and there will likely be more this summer. The ultimate hiring of Mauricio Pochettino must put an end to months of absurd decision-making inside the coaching hierarchy.
Since there is so much that needs to be fixed, even interim manager Frank Lampard cannot be held primarily responsible for their likely bottom-half finish. However, the fact that their win percentage is currently only 11% after this 1-0 loss to the newly crowned champions Manchester City clearly warrants close examination.
Overall, it’s much worse than just a season to forget; there are lessons to be learned, mistakes to be corrected, and what few positives there are to build on for the upcoming season and beyond.
Enzo Fernandez is one of them, however there aren’t many. The positive and negative aspects of Fernandez’s game were on display at the Etihad Stadium. The majority of the negative features aren’t his fault, mind you; rather, he has been visibly growing more and more frustrated with the negative aspects of the team surrounding him in recent weeks.
It will be up to Pochettino to position the Argentinian midfielder at the centre of a successful team after Lampard made him a major member of a struggling one.
