At last, a point - but should it have been three?

Updated: Mar 4

A much better performance at home to Chelsea than the miserable defensive shambles on Monday night against West Ham. An OK performance in the first half with both sides having some early half chances and Wissa having an overhead kick that went straight to their keeper (more to come later). Then Zanka made a goal line clearance from Jackson who had rounded Flekken, but moments later Jackson headed them in front in the 35th minute. It stayed like that until the 50th minute when a Reguilon shot was blocked and it fell to Roerslev who equalised. We are then much the better team and Janelt nearly made it 2-1 but his shot hit the post. Then Chelsea had another chance that they spurned. Yet we did take a deserved lead in the 69th minute. A Chelsea clearance in their box hit Onyeka and the ball went up in the air only for Wissa, with an even better overhead kick, to score a spectacular goal. After that Reguilon hit the base of the post with a header. I suppose we should have held on to get the three points but in the 83rd minute they equalised. From a short corner they got another headed goal and the game ended 2-2. A point is better than nothing. At least Everton, Forest, Luton and Burnley all lost. Next game is another easy one - away to Arsenal.
