    Wow! That’s very impressive. They have played City and Liverpool too.

    What was the stick for Llorente?

    Just saw a stat - we are the first team to outrun Leeds this season. By 6km. This was 11km over our average.

    Yes, agreed! Good stuff Daryl. Thanks

    Well, I don't know what else Kante could be doing. He is the first player to come to the aid of his teammate in the middle of the park and beyond. He picks up dangerous loose balls. He sometimes breaks with the ball like the one that led to the corner that earned the second goal. I actually find his awful passing to be a bit of a myth. Yes, he is not the best passer of the ball, and he often passes short. But by the number of passes that he makes, I think his completion is quite good given that some of them are in very tight situations.

    Great win tonight. Tough game but we got there. Leeds worked really hard and looked impressive at times but ran out of steam and we did what was necessary. Kanté, Mount and Kovacic were terrific. Werner continues to miss good chances but he also continues to do a lot right as well. Havertz didn't have a good game but I don't think there's too much to worry about either. He's coming back from the virus as well. Hope Ziyech isn't out for too long. Found the Diego Llorente stick very entertaining indeed. What's great is we can now rest everyone for Krasnodar on Tuesday so the players have had a week off before Everton, who have looked particularly poor lately.

    He had a bad game tonight but he actually did ok with his moment in the box. For the first goal he laid off Ziyech then got himself free in the box, if Giroud had missed it he would've had a tap in behind him. Then in the second half he lost his marker again and should've scored with his head. For me he is currently looking overawed by the intensity of the league and it is knocking his confidence a bit. For me, he needs to work on his fitness and be eased in. Personally, I would start him midweek then have him come on as sub for the next three games before thinking about starting him against Le Arse.

    Thanks Faramir! :)

    SFL is such a great speaker. I am so happy he is here.

    Yep. He certainly hasn't lived up to his reputation, but you can definitely see a player in there. I think he has been surprised by the Premier League, but Covid hasn't helped and it can affect you mentally and psychologically as well as physically.

    Hey Daryl! Welcome to CFC-Net. Thanks for your comments!
  14. Chelsea 3 Leeds United 1

    He has looked a different player this season. So that's motm so far!!
  15. Chelsea 3 Leeds United 1

    He was. My fear with him playing as the one in front of the back 4 is that he often carries the ball deep into their half and it worked today often, especially in the second half. Against better sides, that can leave you exposed on the counter if you lose the ball

    Definitely, it seems like a really good blend at the moment. Zouma is really excelling next to someone so calm and assured as Thiago Silva, he reads the game so well that he could continue for a few more seasons by the looks of things. Agree on Mendy as well, the game against United he really dug us out at times. I’m surprised how cool and calm he is considering he was playing non league a few years back, looks like he has always had the mentality to play at the top level. Looks good with his feet as well, such a steal when you think Kepa cost us £72million.
  18. Chelsea 3 Leeds United 1

    Well they certainly have the ability I reckon
  19. Chelsea 3 Leeds United 1

    He's looked a bit lacklustre and ponderous all season tbh. Needs to work on his fitness and intensity for this league I think, despite being tall he looks like a kid out there (which he is to be fair) Today every pass was a yard or two short, not sure that could be a fitness issue. What confuses me is that he rarely gets into scoring positions, given how many he scored in Germany. Anyway, plenty of time for him to come good hopefully.
  20. Chelsea 3 Leeds United 1

    I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned more but Kante was absolutely immense tonight. A hardworking Leeds side won't have ever faced energy like that before. Just incredible. Motm by a country mile.
  21. Chelsea 3 Leeds United 1

    Agreed. He seems like a good lad and the Germans think very highly of him. I'd love him to come good and he needs time on the pitch.
  22. Chelsea 3 Leeds United 1

    I was thinking earlier which one is better..... I can't decide. Reece James is brilliant going forward and built like a tank in defence. He's like Roberto Carlos type
  23. Chelsea 3 Leeds United 1

    Yes... that was a great pass to send Timo on his way.
