Now we can concentrate on the league
Updated: Dec 23, 2021
We are unable to emulate last season’s run in the Carabao Cup as we lose 2-0 at home to Chelsea in the Quarter Final. After our last two games being cancelled because of COVID we faced a weakened Chelsea team and we fielded a pretty strong side considering our long injury list. Although we held them for most of the match we did have a few chances in the first half and we should have scored at least one goal (headers from Wissa, Jensen and a shot by Henry), but overall they had more shots and possession. They did bring on some ‘heavyweight’ subs and eventually scored from a Jansson og in the 80th minute and a penalty in the 85th minute. I think we need to be more attack minded as we were at the beginning of the season rather than sitting back for most of the game hoping to score on the break.
