    We are nowhere near the finished article, but for me we have adjusted to Sarri's style far quicker than I thought we could. That said we still need a couple of players to get it right. So we are ahead of where Sarri thought we should be and looking good to make the top four, probably fourth but third isn't impossible. I also agree that a lot of those games we have been lucky this again is down to the team trying to adapt to this style and square pegs being played in round holes. As for Kante you are right it's a real problem, but I can see why Sarri is doing this, once the team learns to press in those area's and win the ball back where other teams are vulnerable, Kante may be the best at doing this? Of course if this doesn't happen this would mean one of two things, he replaces Jorghino or he is sold for huge money (God forbid)

    Reading all this I am beginning to think we have haven't won in 12 games rather than being unbeaten in 12 games.

    Well said mate, I cannot understand the stuff that is written sometimes on this thread. We battered them all second half and Pickford made a couple of top drawer saves. I know its frustrating that we just cannot convert some of the chances we create but I prefer to see us play this attacking style any day. No one can tell me that they are not happy with our style and give Sarri time and we will compete for the title again. This season its all about finishing in the top four.

    Sorry mate no way
  5. BATE Borisov 0 Chelsea 1

    Bate hit the woodwork three times and to be honest deserved a draw.

    Ruben is having one those days where you question if he is the real deal.

    This is farcical!
  9. Chelsea 2 Manchester United 2

    Well that feels like a win to be honest, same as the Pool equalizer felt like a defeat. Let's be honest no one thought we would be in the position we are right now, the football is a delight to watch and yes if we want this football the other teams are going to have chances. Remember we are playing with 10 men, the missing man of course is a striker that we need to score at least 20 goals per season. The other issue is when Hazard is marked out the game or not his normal self we are nowhere near as good. Still I will take the point, top for a hour or two :)

    Boy you lot are harsh on Barkley, nonetheless I still think he is a talent and may be the one who can actually get goals from midfield.

    I have just watched the first half on Sky and then read these comments, amazing what some of us see compared to others. Totally dominant and as usual crossing and corners are ****. Soton yes should have scored from their one very rare foray into our half but that's all. I will agree though I do wonder who else is going to scores our goals and I also agree that Apzi is nowhere near his high standards.

    Cannot believe that we have to bring on Hazard for this one, guess we really are a one man attack

    Don't normally involve myself in petty arguments on here (there are enough to go around) but to say Kovacic is less than total class is mind-boggling to me. One thing I don't understand yet is why Sarri still feels the need to sub him around 70 mins, like some of you I think with him on the pitch we may have nicked all 3 points. No worries though happy with the draw and how Sarri has transformed our team in such a short time, future looks good!
