Did anyone notice Azpilicueta holding/rubbing his hamstring whilst waiting to take a throw in in the second half?

Just wondering if he will get rested and give Cole a run out.

What a nice feeling to have such a good bench to draw on these days, Schwarzer Cole, Schürlle, Salah, Luiz and Mikel. All starting to look good for the long run methinks.

Thankfully Shane Long is gone, he always gave our defenders a tough game.

Why do clubs keep on selling Shane Long? He always looks a great player for a mid table or lower table team to have. He is still only 27. Park the bus, and leave one man up front who costs less than £20m, and the man you want there is Shane Long.

Agreed ref Shane Long. Glad he has gone and cannot understand why they have let him go. Cracking little player , I remember all the problems he gave Terry and Cahill in the home fixture. For his size, he competes ver well up against centre half's.

Not too sure what to make of this game. We are half way through 4 games in under 2 weeks and part of me thinks that their could be a need for some rotation. Trouble is Hazard and Willian are very hard to leave out at present. I would be tempted to leave Matic out for city in the cup, but this is also a massive game and his impact has been very impressive so far.

Think it's safe to say this fixture will not be the curse of our current manager like it was for AVB and Robbie. No idea how these are in the bottom three, they have some good players and should be sat mid table imo. Their new manager seems to get a reaction out of them at half time,but they have been starting games slow, so I think we need to be in control at half time.

I fancy goals in this 2-4

Certainly always puts in a shift. Lukaku bagged a few goals last season coming on after Long had given defenders a physical battle for 60 minutes.
