  1. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    He really impressed me last night, he dealt with many very physical tackles and fouls last night and never stepped back or hid from the occasion, constantly taking one for the team to help slot the game down etc. Really impressive and professional performance. I don't think his quality has ever been in doubt, at least not from me, but it's his ability to maintain full fitness for long periods of time that worries me because without that he will struggle to play at his peak performance very often. Currently, though, he's on a decent run and seems to know his body very well and understands when he needs to stop, before picking up an injury (eg. WBA). For me he is one of our most talented players, we just need him to be able to do it for a full season so we can truly benefit from it.
  2. Chelsea vs Manchester City

    It needs to be the strongest team we can put out because a final against Leicester/Southampton awaits and you have to fancy our chances there, however, I wouldn't be shocked if Mount, Pulisic or the wing-backs needed a rest after the recent run of games, so we may see some rotation. I think we may well see: Mendy Azpi - Silva - Rudiger CHO - Jorginho - Kante - Chilwell Mount - Havertz - Werner It's going to be a tough game, Pepe has had the luxury of being able to rotate a lot and give his key men plenty of rest so they're ready for the big games, so they'll be up for this and on top of their game... but, they are beatable.

    Semi final of the champions league! I didn’t see that a few months ago! Bring it on and please be Madrid!
  4. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    No idea how Porto don’t have more booking tonight, for fouls on Pulisic alone. Fair play to Pulisic for getting through tonight and dealing with all they’ve thrown at him.
  5. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    I’m so glad this has been one of the dullest games of the season, it’s just what we needed.
  6. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    They are, but only outdoor and limited in how many, but the point still stands I guess. :) Me, I’m booked in for a Sunday lunch and then a LONG lunch next Saturday!
  7. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    I guess not much to be said, barely any football played tonight. Strange game, but much more suited to us than them... strange approach from Porto.
  8. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    Refs a joke and you know he’ll get even worse in the 2nd half
  9. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    Pepe absolutely knew what he was doing
  10. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    Seems that Kova is out and Kante will start, which is fine, but I’d be surprised if Kante lasted the 90 mins, so I would expect Mount to drop back in when the change is needed.
  11. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    Arguably the perfect game for Tuchel's tactics, if we can control the game and possession like we have done so many times before, we should be able to see our way through to the semi-finals. It won't be easy as Porto will press and fight hard and will be in our faces from the off, so the players need to be prepared for it. Team selection is interesting, I imagine Tuchel had an 11 in mind before Palace, but that may well have changed following that game, for example I would think he was planning to bring Werner in after a rest, but surely you can't do that now. The other questions he'll be asking himself is do you put Kante back in? do you put Silva in? Alonso or Chilwell? James or CHO? I think we'll see: Mendy Azpi - Christensen - Rudiger James - Jorginho - Kovacic - Chilwell Mount - Havertz - Pulisic
  12. Crystal Palace 1 Chelsea 4

    Our run in is definitely the hardest of all teams competing for top 4 and West Hams is the easiest, but we do have to play both West Ham and Leicester, so win those 2 games and in theory, it's in our own hands. The Arsenal game, shouldn't worry us too much, it's mainly the Man City game (could do with them being champions by then) and the others you have to be winning if you want to be competing for titles, let alone top 4. I think top 4 will be Man City, Man Utd, West Ham and one other... hopefully, us, but it's going to go right to the wire.
