Siewert sees vulnerability in Chelsea

31st January 2019, 17:37 by Bobbie Jackson

Boss Jan Siewert believes he has spotted Chelsea’s vulnerabilities and hopes to expose them when Huddersfield travel to the capital.

The German oversaw his first game as Huddersfield boss on Tuesday and was encouraged by the performance despite losing 1-0 to Everton.

Siewert took a close look at Chelsea as they fell to a 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth on Wednesday and expects Maurizio Sarri’s men to come out fighting on Saturday.

However, he believes the Blues do have some vulnerabilities to expose and hopes to cause an upset at Stamford Bridge.

Siewert said: "The most important thing is that we don't even care about it - that we focus on our own task and stay with it no matter what is happening inside or outside the stadium.

"There is never a good time (to play Chelsea) - this is just the task we are given. For me it was the possibility to observe Chelsea, so I know the situation and I know they have difficulties.

"I saw some situations in which they were vulnerable but to be honest it will be a totally different game. I know Maurizio Sarri is a fantastic manager and we have to face everything which they give us."
