  1. Wolverhampton Wanderers 2 Chelsea 1

    I’d go... Kepa Azpi. Rudiger Christensen. Emerson Kante. Fabregas. Loftus-cheek Willian. Morata. Hazard Six changes but still worthy of first 11 material. Ideally we’d rest Hazard but not sure I’d risk dropping points personally
  2. Chelsea 2 Fulham 0

    Glad you put this, I was going to post exactly the same. The negativity on here is baffling. We weren’t at our best today but this had banana skin written all over with Fulham’s resurgence last week and a new manager. We kept our 11th clean sheet in 21 games and Man City aside, have a decent run of fixtures up until January. We aren’t perfect - far from it - but we have a new manager and coaching team, new GK, new midfield and playing a different formation.
  3. Tottenham Hotspur 3 Chelsea 1

    Not so sure. Neither have any pace whatsoever but at least Fabregas has an aggressive streak and would have fouled Son for their third
  4. Tottenham Hotspur 3 Chelsea 1

    Slight knee-jerk reaction there!! We are fourth in the league, unbeaten before today and it’s not even half way through the season. Very, very bad day at the office though. Sarri needs to drop Luiz, Jorginho and Kovacic too. Not just for today either. Hope to see Fabregas as the deep playmaker next week (who I think is quicker than Jorginho!!) and definitely tackles better, Ross for Kovacic who will at least offer a goal threat, and Christensen for Luiz, where we will have to sacrifice ability on the ball from deep, for defensive solidarity
  5. Chelsea 3 Derby County 2

    Really weird game this. Both teams really off the pace at the back. Definitely more goals to come
  6. Burnley 0 Chelsea 4

    Don’t disagree with the fact he needs to play more, but I thought he was unusually poor against BATE - gave the ball away a lot. And it would be criminal for RLC not to be involved in some way today
  7. Chelsea 3 BATE Boris 1

    I think it was the exact opposite. I think Managers (José and then Conte) saw such an athletic, technically gifted guy, they decided to keep him around which has ended up being to his detriment. He was too good at too young an age, and has been guilty of Managers wanting to take a closer look and not want to risk losing him for a season. We need to be careful not to make that same mistake with Hudson-Odoi and Ampadu
  8. PAOK Salonika 0 Chelsea 1

    Anyone know anything about Paok or the Greek league? ie what would a team who are currently 4th be the equivalent to in England? Ideal opportunity to blood some youngsters but we don’t want to be too complacent and get caught cold. I think it’ll be: Caballero Zappa. Christensen. Cahill. Emerson (if fit) Barkley Ampadu RLC (if fit) Moses. Morata. Willian Although I’d have CHO in personally
  9. Thibaut Courtois Departs

    Suicidal with the high line we play now! Would love to have him back in a different capacity though
  10. Chelsea 2 Bournemouth 0

    I agree, and said the same thing a week or two ago to my family
  11. Yep think that summarises it nicely to be honest. Still think Sarri’s initial focus should be improving our defensive solidarity mind you.
  12. Newcastle 1 Chelsea 2

    Because Rudiger is currently our best defender. He is a beast athletically which helps when playing a high-line, and also posesses a very nice cross field switch pass from distance Him and Christensen would be my preference
  13. Chelsea 3 Arsenal 2

    Yep really intrigued to see how this midfield battle develops. I’m also not 110% convinced on Jorginho either. It’s obviously early days and he can clearly play, but I’m not sure he gives us anything Fabregas couldn’t. I’d prefer to have someone stronger and faster in that position, with a better defensive eye. Sarri was asked about RLC not making the bench after the game and he said he tends to only name one midfielder on the bench as he prefers to have 2 wingers. This means 2 mfs will miss out every week. Not sure RLC will be happy with this, so hope he gets some time in the Europa League
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Really don’t see how buying a second choice LB for fairly big money particularly appeals to Real Madrid?? Because as much as I like Alonso, he’s not displacing Marcelo
  15. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    I meant that loaning him to a team playing a back 3, kind of implies they’re not too invested in his future as Sarri will never play that formation. Seems to me that he’s been written off
