Chelsea 1 Burnley 1

In the last 10 it would have been better to put James Rcb and CHO or Pulisic rwb. We couldn’t get to the byline towards the end so we needed crosses from deep. I thought the subs worked against us and we looked a bit disjointed.

Oh dear. We really managed to screw that up. Burnley had one strategy at half time. Hang on and score on a break. Failed to take our chances then switched off at a crucial point in the game. Less said about our finishing the better. Really poor stuff.

It's 100% our fault.

The chances we had were absolutely guilt-edge and the misses were horrendous at times. 

However, it is important we put this into perspective. We are still top of the league and, 11 games in, we just conceded our first open play goal of the season. We also have a lot of injuries and players who are not fit.

This is a disappointment but not a catastrophe.

If we had anyone who could hit the back of the net on a regular basis, that’s at worst a 5-1 game. If there’s bonuses for goals, I’d dock them for blatant misses too.

When did Silva hot the post? Was that a corner after Burnley scored? Must have been a time the stream went down. 

It would have to be a corner as a goal from open play is a collector's item for this side .

Looking forward to seeing Droy come on and explain the results using his xG spreadsheet. At the end of the day we don't have a clinical finisher at the club, and I'm including Lukaku in that damning indictment too.

top 4 a struggle  come Christmas IMHO.

A fight for top four is much more realistic than a serious title challenge! Apart from defence, we still look miles off an in forum City and Liverpool.

Imho, results have been way better than actual performances. The way we play under TT, any team, no matter how poor, has a great chance of taking points off us if they score just one goal. No team can challenge for the title relying so massively on defenders and keeping clean sheets every game.
