    Looks like a dislocated shoulder?

    Great finish Morata, shame you were offside :)

    How the frigging heck are we only 0-1 up?
  5. Chelsea 4 Cardiff City 1

    These matches last season gave us real problems and even though people say we should have won all these first five matches, but last season we dropped so many points against sides such as these, so for me its been a great start. One thing that I feel may need changing is Luiz, hate to say it as I always been a huge fan but I feel he is a liability so even though Christensen doesn't have Luiz's range of passing, he is more solid defender.

    I hold my breath every time they have a set piece.

    Good to be level, but personally I think Kante's role is confusing me. He is being wasted where he is and he seems confused by it as well.

    Pedro again 1-0

    Yea don't get me wrong mate, I agree with you, all rather Arsenal looking at it, great approach football but Begovic really not tested.

    Love the football we are playing but on two occasions Luiz has gone awol, he really needs to wake up otherwise all his other qualities just go to waste. The other frustrating thing for me is the crossing from either left or right wings, love Azpi but his crossing is sometimes awful.

    I think we should realize that Kepa is only 23 or just 24, the fee for him must be a huge burden for a young gk so he will need time, I remember De Gea's first season, he looked awful but now look at him. As for the Joselu header it was a fantastic effort but I cannot work out what Luiz was doing just frozen in time.

    To be fair much better second half defensively and ended up as the better team, like the look of Kovacic, him and Hazard coming on made a big difference. That's not to slam Barkley who could have had a goal or two himself, but Kovacic is obviously a more technical player. Another one I won't have a go at is Kepa, he is very young and I thought he was brave retrieving the ball after it bounced out of his hand, he will get better!

    In regard to RLC, watched him a lot at Crystal Palace and he had the same issues, with the ball looked great but without it looks lost and doesn't work harder enough. He seems to stand off and admire his own work when it comes off, but waits around for the next one to happen. The other thing with him is goal scoring, not sure if he scored more than 1 or 2 at Palace, but lacks confidence in his ability to take a chance and shoot. This confidence thing is huge because when you watch CHO take his chance he goes for it, never see that with Ruben. I was so hoping he would come through because he has all the tools to do so, now unless something happens this season I fear he will move on. Too bad.

    The issue we have in defense is zonal marking, never been a fan myself and at corners or free kicks the players haven't worked it out yet.
  15. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 2

    Don't think Barkley has been woeful to be honest I think Drinkwater is coming on for Cesc who looks as if he isn't 100% fit
