  1. Chelsea 3 Arsenal 2

    I think the starting 11 will be (not saying it's what I really want it to be): Kepa Dave Rudi Luiz Alonso Kante Jorginho Barkley Willian Morata Pedro Subs: Willy, Christensen, Hazard, Kovacic, RLC, Giroud, CHO (or Emerson)

    Me too - and I know the wifi on my campsite ISN'T good enough! Remember, data roaming charges are standard across Europe now - go on, treat yourself!

    I think the first point is sometimes true, but it’s also true of Azpi. I think its the fatal weakness of most, if not all, full backs. As for fast wingers targeting him... it’s a bit of a self-fulfilling prophesy: he’s a full back; so he marks wingers; so fast (and not so fast ones) will target him. Actually, if he’d moved at the end of conte’s first season I think he coukd have stepped up to a ‘super’ club.

    Agree with this. I’m always reading here about his lack of pace; yet whenever I watch us (and that’s pretty much every game) there he is, tearing up the left wing. For me, his weaker aspect is when static, defending deep and taken on by an ‘explosive’ player or one with a trick or two. I think LB is fine. If not Alonso, then Emerson - who is even faster.

    On the club app. Both of them. I guess we’re going with Morata, Giroud, Hazard (false nine), Tammy.

    Bats to Valencia, Zouma to Everton.

    I think it will end up being Rudiger and Christiansen - with Luis and Cahill playing back-up, coming on to shore things up late on (if Sarri does 'shoring things up later on') - Ampadu will get game time in the other competitions. Not sure if Zooms will stay with us.

    It may be that we will see how we get on with Morata, Giroud, Hazard as false 9, Bats, Tammy... Any of those can go out on loan to a European club if we need to let them over the next few weeks.

    Might be doing some selling? Is the Fekir thing just a rumour?

    Baby, I'm on it like a Jane Austen bonnet!

    I can get behind that!

    That thought crossed my mind, but as others have said, Hazard will be 28 - possible a bit too old to be 'flavour of the month' anymore.

    Thinking about the Kovacic and the 'option to buy' question: His current Real contract runs until 30.06.2021 He will be with us until, let us say, 30.06.1919 He will then, presumably, be in a position where Real would look to move him onto a longer contract - or sell on, a bit like Eden with us. I guess, if he really likes it with us and we want to retain him, he will simply refuse to discuss or sign a longer Real contract. This may be why we're quite sanguine about not having that assurance.

    My money is on the 'goers' being: 1. Baka (To AC Milan) 2. Drinkwater (to an English PL club with an option to buy) 3. A real long-shot - Fabregas to a European side later in their window, although he might give us another year

    Hmm... There comes a point when any player who aspires to perform at the very top level, RLC included, has to compete within a squad with the very best. If RLC is the player we all keep hoping he is, then he will rise to the challenge and force Sarri to pick him ahead of Kovacic. The same could be said of Barkley. My hunch is that Sarri may be thinking both RLC and Barkley have the potential to fill a midfield slot but also to perform a wider role in the front three. I'm just relieved that for once, we don't (as yet) seem to be stripping the squad to its bare bones, but actually leaving decent cover in place. Although 5pm is a way away and there's still a few weeks to send people off to Europe. Personally, I'd feel very happy to end up with Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Fabregas, RLC, Barkley as six options in midfield - possibly with Drinkwater going.
