Highlights of a preseason comeback win

New, comments

If you're like me or Chelsea for the first half and you slept through this game, here are a few key highlights of our comeback win over League Two strugglers AFC Wimbledon. That sounds entirely unglamorous, but a comeback win is better than a failed comeback and certainly better than a 2-0 loss like the scoreline suggested at the half.

Nice to see Mohamed Salah influencing the match; he has all the physical tools required to be a game-changing force for us this season. And just as Jeremie Boga stood out with his set piece deliveries in the first game, Lewis Baker stood out with his left-footed and right-footed corners, his ambidexterity on full display and yet to cease to amaze. Three assists for the young man of such incredible promise. And how about suddenly prolific John Terry, our leading preseason goalscorer with three goals in two games? He's certainly wasting no time in getting back into the winning habit.

With the U18s winning 4-1 earlier on Saturday, Chelsea remain undefeated in preseason at all three competitive levels. The first-team now begin their European tour (flying out Monday, to be specific), with the squad taking on a more familiar look, bolstered by World Cup returnees. Next up will be RZ Pellets on Wednesday in Austria.
