    Brilliant goal! Who said he shouldn't play in a more advance position!? 🤣
  2. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    The 1st free kick came about from us not having enough numbers behind the ball, Zouma would have helped that. The 2nd goal was due to a lack of power in the air, Zouma would have helped that. Kante is not match fit and it's unfair to ask more off him, Mount isn't 100%. Sometimes it's better to make as less changes as possible and go with players are 100% fit.

    True, not the Frank bit lol... Frank is quite naive though, against Wolves we looked solid and it's exactly what we needed in this game, but instead he changed things around by losing a centre back and brining in Emerson, why he chose to go more offensive against a team at the top of the table only he knows.

    True, if it'd have been the other way around he'd be moaning for the rest of the season.

    Offside with VAR can only be 100% accurate if there's clear daylight between two players, it would be a far better system to use under VAR. Also at the moment the size of a player's boot could make them offside, however where is the technology to judge the exact millisecond the ball is played forward? Without that it's just too inconsistent.

    I don't think it's that, and if it is then Lamps needs to also have a look at not letting Mount on the pitch - he gets pushed off the ball too.

    Early signs aren't great for Pulisic, there's two ageing wingers and an attacking mid ahead of him, and that doesn't even include Odoi.

    There's almost an air or reluctance to use him, but like you said it could be he is carrying some form of injury or fitness problem.

    He needs time on the pitch to adapt though.

    The same team last week would have done, but it looks like it's a new age of the Tinkerman. The defence looks outnumbered which is how mistakes happen, and we've paid for it.

    Yeah he's on the bench... I rate him, but I'm starting to think he might become a Salah type, where he's caught in the wrong situation and doesn't get the time he needs.

    Or is it just difficult to leave both Willian and Pedro out the team?...and because nor can Lamps leave Jorge, Kante or Kova out it means Pulisic being given a bit part to play. Personally I'd like to see Willian and Pedro off the bench and get Pulisic playing as much as possible, or at the end of the season we'll have one less wide man and the other 2 options starting to wind down on their career. That leaves just Hudson. Mount is versatile but he needs to be playing off the striker not in wide positions.

    Kepa Azpi, Tom, Chris, Emerson, Kova, Jorg, Kante, Willian, Tammy, Mount, Not too confident in that backline, would like to have seen Zouma in there to bring some power to the backline, I'd have gone with from right to left: Tom, Chris, Zouma, Dave; just to keep an eye on Liverpool's front 3. That would have given the centre mids the chance to be more proactive, now I think in order to protect the defence they'll have to wait until they're sure the backline is totally protected before attempting to play their own game. However with Kante back in it'll give Kova a partner to press with energy and not let the ball get through.

    We need our players back and fit asap, at the moment I can't judge the team too much as it isn't really the full team for me. Kepa; Dave, Chris, Rudi, Emerson; Kante, *Jorge; Willian, RLC, Pedro; Giroud; Subs: Caba; Zouma; Kova, Mount; Barkley, Pulisic; Tammy; Everyone will differ on who they would have in their team and on the bench, but for me **6/7 players were missing from the starting line up. Over the course of the season for me it would be about bringing players like Zouma, Mount, Pulisic and Tammy into the game more and more, instead due to certain players missing I'd like to think Frank is doing what he's doing to try and provide some sort of balance to the team in terms of physical attributes; however his decision making yesterday was probably at fault more than anything else, it was 100% the wrong time to give Gilmour a debut and Giroud should have been the man to help with his experience to bring some game management when winning possession. Is this Frank just trying to make things work without his full squad or is he really making solid mistakes by picking to bring the wrong players on at the wrong time?...only time will tell. *It really is a toss up between Jorge and Kova for me, while I think Kova would bring far more dynamism to the side I think without Jorge we'll struggle to bring the ball out from the back and keep things calm; we might end up becoming even more frantic and gung ho with every attack. I'd rather players further forward be more risky in possession and someone in Jorge's position just help recycle possession and look for the ball over the top. Only if Kova could improve his shooting and become a goal scorer, he'd be the perfect number 10 (very Oscar like, creative but gets stuck in when they need to). **I think the reason Zouma has to play at the moment is because he can replace a part of what Rudi does in the backline, however when Rudi is back I can see Chris coming back into the starting lineup. If Zouma doesn't play when Rudi is missing we'll have little or no physicality left in the backline.

    A foul!? The keeper hit the ball off Giroud's head.
