Emma Hayes says ‘the whole squad is playing well’ as Chelsea prepare to face Everton.



Emma Hayes asserts that “the entire squad is performing admirably” as Chelsea prepare to visit Everton.This weekend marks the return of Chelsea to Barclays

Women’s Super League action, following a hectic schedule in recent weeks due to their concluding dominance in the UEFA Women’s Champions League group stages. In their most recent matchup, Chelsea defeated Paris FC with a performance in which the Blues utilized a starting lineup that was virtually wholly rotated.


Emma Hayes is currently situated in a scenario where the depth of the squad is experiencing exponential development in terms of competitiveness. Hayes discussed her approach to managing depth quality and commended the player’s ingenuity in utilizing the competitive list as motivation.”Everyone here is an international player; senior internationals make up at least the vast majority.” Therefore, it goes without saying that they desire to participate each week, but our training is extremely competitive, and those who perform well there have a greater chance of making the roster.


“I have repeatedly stated that I am extremely generous with playing time.” While I have faith in the athletes, it is also important to maintain consistency in certain lineups. It simply demonstrates the caliber of the players during the midweek break that we were capable of executing the necessary adjustments without any complications.Upon their return to WSL competition, the Blues will endeavor to solidify their position atop the standings of the league table. Hayes’s squad has been in excellent form in recent weeks, scoring nine goals in their last three matches. The Chelsea manager attributed her team’s exceptional performance to a unified confidence that permeated the complete squad.


“The response is not entirely clear; however, it is worth noting that the implementation of ideas and patterns may require a small amount of time to materialize into something more substantial.” It is evident that a great deal of confidence is placed in the performances. It appears that all members have a comprehensive understanding of their respective responsibilities and expectations, and they are effectively fulfilling them. For me, the fact that the entire squad is performing admirably and earning minutes is half the battle.


Everton, the forthcoming opponents of Chelsea, are presently ninth in the league standings and have just recovered from a disheartening loss to Leicester City on Sunday. Brian Sørensen has encountered significant obstacles during the course of this league season, succumbing to an accumulation of injury complications.Hayes, when asked how she perceives the Toffees’ unpredictability, responded that her squad will be ready to face whatever Sørensen’s side may present in Sunday’s matchup. “Wait, observe, and analyze.” Subsequently, decisions are rendered, for which every participant will be adequately equipped.


Hayes further stated, “They are among the league’s best buildup teams; they maintain the ball exceptionally well in the gaps.” Maintaining our focus on the league is of the utmost importance.


I believe they have maintained a relatively consistent style of play, irrespective of the personnel on the field. If they perform as we have anticipated, then it will indeed be simpler. We have created circumstances in which we can state, “This is how they’ve framed it; if they follow suit, we will do the same.” If they change, however, we will proceed as follows. As a result, we have adequately equipped the team to handle the situation, given that the true nature of the situation remains uncertain until kick-off.
