We still have the champions league, world club cup, FA Cup and Caribou Cup. Still a lot to play for. The league can wait till next season - unfortunately man ****** will win it again. 

Top 3 is a must 

Yes that's the way I am looking at it now. Getting back to the title race is a bonus, but we have to see City drop points for that between now and us playing them, and us winning 2/2 before then.

To be fair to CHO as well, even though I slated him for the finish, he needs to start games for sure, more creative with him in the team.

Lukaku is so important to how the next 5 months go, isn't he.

Yes, but we do need to work on how we involve him. From this match it seems that we get more out of him if we carry on playing our game rather than stand on the sidelines and hoof the ball towards him.

Lukaku changed the game and changed the outcome for us , we were still largely unconvincing but it's a good away win .

However we cannot keep relying on penalties to win the game , too many of our players are brain dead when it comes to football intelligence .

Alonso should have told James to do one for the free kick , Mount should have played in Lukaku instead of choosing to miss an open goal , Pulisic should have made an angle for Mount instead of running into his path , Kovacic should have hoofed the ball instead of half heartedly gifting them another attack with a weak clearance , CHO should have gone high not low , the list of stupidity is endless .

Kante looks injured , James was awful , CHO and Pulisic shocking 

Thank goodness we can rely on Jorginho as a penalty taker.

The commentary was appallingly pro Villa throughout , truly dreadful , every foul they committed was reported as the Chelsea player making a meal of it , truly obnoxious stuff . 

Villa were abysmal , that we let them give us a game was horrendous on our part .

Not a great performance by any stretch of the imagination but 3 points and to do it from going behind shows some good improvement on recent games. Happy Christmas!

Lukaku was outstanding.

Brilliant assist from Hudson-Odoi to create the second goal; he is capable of doing that and should be racking up the assist his level of passing/crossing ability.

Christensen played well when he came on.

James didn't have his best game today; erratic crossing and passing at times. Thankfully he avoided a 5th yellow and suspension. 

Kante was brilliant. Best player on the pitch by a country mile.
