    Definitely. Hope it stays this way!
  2. Burnley 0 Chelsea 3

    Phenomenal performance. Enjoyed every minute of it. I haven't seen us totally dominate a team like that for quite a long time. Kante MOTM. He was incredible and, sorry, there is no way he shouldn't be playing as DM in front of our back four. 4-3-3 with him at the base makes us so much more solid. Plus with Mount and Havertz just in front of him we looked far more dangerous on the break. Very, very happy. Only negative today is Pulisic... hope it isn't serious.

    Given the weekend I'm actually quite glad to have been bored.

    Sorry Droy I missed your response. Yes I agree that putting the defensive line forward could be the better option. It's a difference in the cover of two vs the cover of four. Plus not having a gap might help break through the press. What frustrates me is this problem keeps happening and I can't fathom why that's the case. I'm pretty sure someone posted a few months ago about the lack of experience of our coaches, but surely even they must have noticed? Or is it the players just not understanding the system? It can't that difficult to play a higher line or have provide cover between the lines. I just find the whole thing baffling. Individual mistakes yes, but the system invites too much pressure on our defence and, indeed, our goalkeeper.

    This video does a great analysis - love this guy. Watch from 5 minutes and you can see exactly why the system is contributing to our defensive problems, despite defensive mistakes.

    True, the attacking performance in the first half was the best this season. Werner was phenomenal up front. Special mention to Jorginho too who showed what he could do. We can't rely on them to bail out our defence though, evidently.

    You know what I'll freely admit I've gone into meltdown now. We have a champions league attack and a championship defence. This is totally unsustainable. And no I'm not giving Lampard a free pass. If there is a method to the defensive setup I don't see it. If there is, then it needs changing because the players are simply not adapting to it. Christ I thought our defending was bad under Sarri, but currently he's making Sarri's team look as solid as the 04/05 Mourinho team!

    That Kepa mistake was the worst he's made for the club. He bottled a 50/50 situation. I know this is raw but I just can't. I'm beyond seething.
  9. Chelsea 3 Southampton 3

    Absolutely seething.
  10. Wish he'd at least give Werner a go as a central striker...
  11. Full strength team tonight. If the players still need fitness then this is a game to do it. -----------------Mendy---------------- -Azpi--Tomori---Silva*--Chilwell -------Kante----Kovacic----------- Mount------Havertz-------CHO -------------Werner------------ *If Silva isn't able to play two games in quick succession yet, then play Zouma. If Spurs are playing a weakened team there isn't any excuse tonight for not winning comfortably.

    Can't disagree with the bolded bit. I also thought Tomori looked pretty solid when we came on. Another notable thing is we were a lot better at defending from set pieces too. Hopefully those blunders are gone from the team now.

    Yeah it just seems strange to me given the fact that Giroud and Abraham were presumably fit. Or Werner could have been played centrally. I mean Lampard is a manager and I'm just a grumpy fan but I genuinely can't figure out what he was trying to do.
  14. Chelsea 0 Liverpool 2

    Yeah he had a stint as an out and out forward but that was not the same system as was asked of him today. Either way I'm certain he'll prove himself but he won't work as a false nine in this team.
