The Mauricio Pochettino era at Chelsea is showing promise despite a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The performance displayed many positives as these Premier League giants went head to head. Chelsea might feel more aggrieved overall. An exquisite pass from former Blue Mo Salah located Luis Diaz at the far post, granting the visitors the lead. However, the hosts rebounded and secured an equalizer in the 37th minute through debutant Axel Disasi.

The second half was as intense as the first, but neither team managed to score the winning goal for three points on the opening weekend of the Premier League.

Here are three lessons learned from The Blues’ first Premier League action of the season

Moisés Caicedo is a must need for both Chelsea and Liverpool

Brighton and Southampton might want to consider raising the price tags for Moisés Caicedo and Roméo Lavia. These two players are in limited supply, and both Liverpool and Chelsea are urgently seeking individuals who can bring discipline and physical prowess to their midfield positions.

While the match provided entertainment, it didn’t necessarily meet the criteria for being classified as a high-quality game, given the open nature of both teams. Liverpool had the upper hand during the initial half-hour, while CFC dominated the following period. However, neither side managed to fully convince, and it seemed somewhat perplexing that both teams only scored once.
