  1. West Bromwich Albion vs Chelsea

    We don't know that's the case though, do we? For most of the Summer, Tomori has been linked with a loan move away. To Rennes, then to Everton, then Rennes again. I'd seen some fans suggest trying to sell Christensen or Rüdiger but no actual concrete links. It would appear that we had been expecting to play the season with Silva/Zouma/AC/Rudi.

    Just what you want from an early cup round. Great to see Havertz net himself a hat trick. Especially good for Tammy to get up and running too. Having said that, I did think Barnsley were pretty dreadful. Three of our goals came from individual errors and we could've had 8 or 9 as we missed some sitters as well. There was one mix up involving Silva in the first half but other than that he was good. I love watching his movement, he's a phenomenal defender. I expect to feel a lot more confident with him in the side. Good to see minutes for Chilwell too. Looking forward to having everyone fit. Hopefully Ziyech and/or Pulisic will see some action against West Brom. EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot to mention Ross Barkley. He missed a sitter but other than that I thought he looked good. I've really come around to him as a really useful squad player in the last 12 months. For a club like us it can be especially difficult to find the right players to flesh out the squad without really being potential starters. If it's between him and RLC to head out on loan or permanently, I'm afraid it should probably be RLC.

    Sounds like he's been having a medical every day in a different European country for the last week. Really want this to finally be wrapped up!

    Genius from Mount and Giroud. Fantastic play. Great save!

    Shocking miss from Barkley, that.

    Anyone here from Australia? Literally every advert on this BeIn Sports stream I'm watching is for "Macca's". How bizarre.

    Plenty of streams out there. PM if needed.

    Christ almighty. You sound ridiculous. How on earth is it "50-50"?

    Well some good news is that Tomori looks to be ahead of Rüdiger now and that performance should cement it. Hopefully he'll stick around as the talk of him heading off to Rennes or Everton on loan has appeared to die down.

    Some of the comments in here are typically absurd. But the Lampard as manager debate is an interesting one that will undoubtedly continue until (if) he wins trophies. Can anyone say for sure that he's a top manager? Of course not. He's a former player with two years worth of management under his belt (the first of which was in the Championship) and statistically it's probably not probable that he'll prove to be the right man for Chelsea (god knows, we've been through enough managers with far more experience who didn't make the grade). But I do think the sneering treatment he's been getting is over the top and I'm sure that his persona has had as much to do with this notion that he's a Tim Sherwood tactically more than the actual performances. Regardless, I still think it's hard to argue with the idea that the jury is very much still out. With six new additions he'll be judged this season and rightly so. But I'd like to actually give him that time before making that judgment. Using a Liverpool match when we were without several surefire starters and down to 10 for the second half is silly.

    Honestly I think we've mostly defended well.
  13. Chelsea 0 Liverpool 2

    Mount, sure. But did Werner and Kai not play those positions for Leipzig and Leverkusen respectively last season when they both performed so well? Werner to the left of Schick or Poulsen, Kai playing as a striker for much of the second half of the season when he went on a goalscoring run? Correct me if I'm wrong.
  14. Chelsea 0 Liverpool 2

    I know this thread is traditionally full of reactionary hysteria during a match but you'd think that four or five (likely) first team players out injured, being down to 10 for half the game and the fact that we're playing Liverpool would go some way towards dampening that...

    And by all accounts Mendy isn't nearly as good with his feet as Kepa.
