The new manager is still considering those at his disposal, though quite what he could have learned from this occasion is open to debate. There were 12 substitutions in all, including the anticipated new line-up after the interval, to suggest this was more a fitness exercise. But, if Chelsea inevitably dominated possession, they laboured to prise apart a Malaysian XI devoid of the regulars to play in Singapore on Saturday.
The shape was solid enough, a customary 4-3-3, but there still lacks a spark. If those already at the club cannot provide evidence of one soon, then Chelsea will have to step up the search for new invention.
TAHNIAHLE MALAYSIA YANG TAK BAGI PELUANG CHELSEA BERPESTA GOALS.
