Well we needed that. Terrific performance. But a big thanks to Soton for not bothering to turn up. Couldn’t have asked for better preparation for the game on Tuesday. 

Tuchel has to make some interesting calls now. Does he start Alonso? Werner over Pulisic? Kovacic over Jorginho or Kante?

Kante played the whole game

Jorginho had the day off and Kovacic played 30 minutes.

Does that indicate who is left out on Tuesday?

Indeed it will. But this result and Arsenal losing, means any fears about top 4 should be over.

It almost secures 3rd in all honesty

Nearly there, but remember,  we've still to play Arsenal, so a defeat against them would put them back in with a chance. A draw against them will be enough I think.

I hope Arsenal get 4th as that might prompt Conte to leave Spurs. They'd be more of a danger to us next season with Conte there for the whole year.

Excellent performance. We've seen so many games where we create these kinds of chances and don't bury them. This is the first time in months we've been genuinely clinical. 

I hope, maybe naively, that this is the turning-point for Timo at Chelsea.

It's not often that you see the sheer pace that Werner stepped up with to actually go past his defender after giving him a start then chasing the ball down and an excellent finish,,,so unlucky today with about 1/2" away from at least three other goals....he gets stick..rightly so but give credit where due.

Gratified to see Waterloo Defence tactics today with far less emphasis on the tippy tappy close to goal stuff.

Only one defender goal and Mason with a hair cut........

Well, that was some performance, from both sides, I must say. A lot for TT to take towards his decision making for Tuesday.
