Thursday has been a tough day of reflection for Chelsea supporters after last nights humiliating result at Old Trafford. Perhaps even tougher for Levi Colwill who captained Chelsea for the first time.
With James deemed not fit to start, Chilwell injured and Gallagher suspended, the armband was handed to Levi Colwill.
Given the responsibilities of being a Chelsea captain in 2023, the expectation seems low but the pressure being intense seems far too much for this squad.
In the build up to Manchester United’s 2nd goal Colwill let his feelings known in an interview on the clubs website regarding a decision that was not given as a foul. Colwill said;
“VAR has something against me right now, I don’t know what I’ve done to them. Against Brighton they tried to give a pen, and then when I got pulled they didn’t give anything. If I had pulled him like that they would have given a penalty. It is what it is.”
In reality it would have been a really harsh decision to disallow the goal and Chelsea defence, Colwill included just need to be stronger.
Colwill went onto tell the clubs official channel, “It is a transitional phase, but we can’t keep saying that. We have to improve quickly, start winning games and playing our football every single game instead of just every now and then.”
Colwill and Chelsea will be looking to bounce back on Sunday as Chelsea travel to a hostile Goodison Park.
