Chelsea had the best defensive record in CL history and people saying they have bad defense🤣🤣
HarvEY SpEcter.
HarvEY SpEcter.:
How can Don say that the coach "doesn't fancy Rudiger"? Like seriously. Hilarious.
Tallal T
Tallal T:
Don probably still thinks Frank's still the Chelsea manager the way he is is talking about the club. "Manager doesn't fancy Rudiger", "backline is not good enough", "the gap between other teams and Chelsea was too big". Clueless. Someone break the news to him again now we have a competent manager, to say the least.
It's kind of funny to hear from someone that Chelsea's defence is some kind of concern, the main strong point of Chelsea has been the defence.
M M:
Has dom seen that defense function, they are incredible in that system, rudiger, silva and azpilicueta as a centre back trio work incredible and have the depth of using christainsen there aswell

Now that Don has said it, just like he did in UCL, Chelsea will definitely win the league.

DeWayne Bright, II:
don must not watch Chelsea like at all literally all his takes in this video were WRONG. Chelsea was top 2 in the top 5 leagues for clean sheets and least goals conceded in UCL campaign........And he said Rudi isn't favored by Tuchel? Rudi wasn't even playing under lamps and the first game Tuchel coached he started Rudi and never took him out for the rest of the season and even wanted him at PSG lol

Don is shocking man , I use to think he's a good analysis but no , how can he say Tuchel doesn't fancy Rudiger and Chelsea defense not good enough .

The manager doesn’t fancy Rudiger that’s why
He’s agreed the new five-year contract 🤡✅✍️🤫🤫🤫🤫
Excited to see Lukaku make his debut🤩💙
Malachi Charles
Malachi Charles:
Don used to be such a competent pundit but now I feel he’s just saying whatever for a reaction
What is Don Hutchinson on about he doesn't see that backline being not good enough as it stands CHELSEA HAD THE BEST DEFENCE SINCE TUCHEL TOOK OVER, THEY LET ON THE LEAST AMOUNT OF GOALS.

Neiko McCalla:
Craig : I didn’t know Chelsea would get Lukaku or I’d have them first

Craig: Puts Lukaku to finish as Top scorer

jaswanth jashu:
Man like Don said last season Chelsea has zero percentage of winning UCL. He’s is worst pundit I have ever seen
Don is genuinely the worst pundit ever
What is up with these hosts. I miss the days when hosts were neutral. Now they just give stupid point based on personal feelings against a club. Chelsea's defence is the best in the league and Europe
Micheal Xlr
Micheal Xlr:
Don should at least check the stats before opening his mouth. Kane scored 23 goals in the premier last season yet he’s here going on about “40 goals” kmt.
Call Me Conny
Call Me Conny:
How is Chelsea defence an issue when they had 1 of the best defensive record last season lol even city failed to beat tuchel Chelsea 3 times lol I swear don is clueless smh.. and rudiger was 1 of the best defenders in the league last year smh its only zouma tuchel wants to get rid of and get kounde cuz zouma not really good with his feet .. but either way the defenders are doing a good job in the system even christenson is playing well smh

Eoghan Bourke:
5:16 Burley: When I picked this Lukaku hadn't signed....
👀 Peeps who he has as Top Scorer... 🤣😂🤣😂
Does Don even watch Chelsea, That backline is incredible. The guy needs to take his blinders off
Akinlabi Bamidele
Akinlabi Bamidele:
Chelsea defense is one of the best if not the best since tuchel came in
Emilio Riofrio
Emilio Riofrio:
What is Don going on about? The most successful backline in Champions League history, that conceded the least goals, is not good enough to win the title?? LOL

I've never been this much into football since 2015. I can't wait for the uefa champions league.
Adam Ibraheem
Adam Ibraheem:
I believe Craig is being modest by giving it to Man City. After all, it wouldn't be a disappointment if Chelsea emerges champions.

"Thiago silver at 36" bruv.. Can you mention 3 CBs that out performed him last season? Who is this joker Ffs?
King Tshilobo
King Tshilobo:
Of course he is. We need a big strong powerful CF. Now partnering up with Werner will be effective. Since Werner will no longer be the focal point
Yannick Dongo
Yannick Dongo:
Stopped watching when the bloke said the coach doesn't fancy Rüdiger
Omo Ola
Omo Ola:
Don is something else when it come to Chelsea case..... I was surprised hearing him saying manager doesn't fancy Rudiger and Zouma.... Oh really 🙄
Lukaku must be the most expensive striker. Clubs have spent $250M+ just to get him
Henry Koelling
Henry Koelling:
Don cleans up so nice with the buttoned up collar… 😳 such a great analyst
Kane has never scored 35 to 40 goals in one pl season ...that don talk total nonesense 🤦‍♂️
Chelsea beats Man City in every key match this last year….and the pundits continue to pick them over Chelsea despite saying Lukaku will score the most goals. 🤣 😂
Shawn Manion
Shawn Manion:
And we beat Man City 3 times in a row thanks to The mastermind behind the wheel
Hatrick vs united desperately needed. 👍
PSG , Chelsea , Manchester City..these are the teams Iam looking forward to... This Season.. 🤯🤯

Never thought I'd say that Ale has better takes than Don lately 🤣🤣🤣

Kane scores goals but 35/40 in the league what season was that can someone pls tell me?
Calvin H.
Calvin H.:
Don is always the joker on the ESPNFC panel. The dude simply makes stuff up "coach doesn't fancy Rudiger" and worse one from last season "Kai Havertz doesn't speak the English language" Don is seriously ridiculous how is he an EPL match commentator. He says a lot of nonsense there too.
Boaty McBoatface
Boaty McBoatface:
The backline was what got them into the top 4 and helped them nullify Man City in the CL final.
The best defensive record since tuchel came in and yet he says that tuchel doesn't fancy his worrying defence ..
What a nice joke 🤣🤣🤣 he definitely has serious grudge against Chelsea otherwise he won't say such nonesense
Volt Vortex Music
Volt Vortex Music:
Well... Chelsea might also get Jules Koundé; so we’ll be fine.
The definition of a fool is somebody repeating his failures expecting a different outcome. Romelu is officially the most traded player ever by now, why should we expect this fact to change?
Faaz Arshad
Faaz Arshad:
I am going with Jan's prediction for Premier League even though I support Liverpool.

We just a need another classical midfielder and kounde.
It will add more spice to the Club

2:33 Wow Lukaku never finished a season under 10 goal👀

This is like Roman Abramovich strong statement to all chelsea players, if you dont play good now, go out loan, or end up the club sell them. But if they improve and get better, he welcome them home and willing to pay. Such a great owner!
Up the blues!! 💙💙💙 PL 🏆 incoming

I won’t get into stats as I’m sure they back up how good Chelsea are defensively but do these pundits watch the games. The way we press and retain the ball means teams rarely get at our back line.
Even when teams get at our defense we have a great combination of power, pace and experience. Mendy is a quality keeper and kante is the best in the world at his role.
Andrea Naletto
Andrea Naletto:
At Inter, Lukaku had unconditional support from Conte and the fans. Treat him the same, and he'll pay back big time!

Happy to see Don prediction...he always predicts blunder 😂
Ben Ali Alfakhri

19 points behind... But discard the first half of the season and double the points tally from midway and it'll be a more accurate reflection of where the team is.
Matty Ice
Matty Ice:
Abromovic is one of the best owners in sports, take a bow.
it will be close Kane or Lukaku, both should get over 20 goals
Akeim Alveranga

please remember that these same analysts said that Chelsea will not have a chance of winning the champions league after the porto quarter finals

Chelsea won PL title with terry at the age of 36 or 37 I think.. 🤣🤣
Paul Dark

Lukaku struggles much more in PL because of much more physical type of play, of course he will strengthen Chelsea but they have overpaid

This is the same Lukaku these pundits laughed at when he was at United. Never change Espn pundits.

Everyone praised how good our defense was last season and now for don all of a sudden that's our biggest weakness??? What a clown
Lukaku will score more he would stay fit Kane will get injured

That guy must be watching hockey or something. When I heard him say the coach doesn't fancy Rudiger I really wanted to laugh. These guys just talk without knowing anything about a team.

Sad to see what happened to Don. Used to be a sensible and knowledgeable pundit. I guess money and fame at ESPN led him to spend his time on things other than watching football
Sabin Maharjan

So much jealousy from this clown Don (Tottenham fan). Glad i'm a chelsea fan.
Tymko C
Tymko C:
Robert L from Bayern was available for 80 mil. And he's guaranteed goal a game man even at 33 (almost).
Can’t ever say Don’s not good for laugh, talking about how Chelsea can’t win the league with Zouma. I guess that’s true considering Zouma wasn’t even on the bench in that provisional squad. 😂
Egwuogu Ikenna

expect Tuchel to flop and sacked in January and Chelsea to finish 6th with several injuiries

Don Hutchinson's opinions always age well. Watch Lukaku end the season top scorer
Akwesi Mishael
Akwesi Mishael:
Don is so deluded. man picked Liverpool and United to finish above a team who won the UCL with Timo Werner as striker😂
anayas rai
anayas rai:
It is funny how Don Hutchisons prediction has predicted Chelsea to finish 4th, I mean this guy had unrealistic predictions when Lampard was the manager since he was fired he has just been completely against Chelsea.

Lukaku is fit, in mid August 2021. Guess his weight in January?

Number 1 most expensive player combined in teams dishing out the cash for him
Eddie Random Beats

Sad to see him leave my team.
He was smashing smaller teams but was a let down at times against big teams.
But was overall amazing to the team conte created.
Hope he wins at Chelsea.
He deserves it.

Y’all need to fire a lot of your so called “experts”

The berserk cold iteratively strip because stool aesthetically delight plus a torpid grade. tricky, wanting cocktail
Surprised with Dons prediction, Chelsea are the Champions of Europe and with Lukaku joining, one would think their chances to win the EPL increases.

Chelsea have the best Defensive record in UCL HISTORY and people say we have a bad defense 😂
