    If we need him for depth then play him more. I understood that he’s raw and coming back from a serious injury but the only way he gets better without the benefit of a loan is through regular playing time. Better rotation with Willian would be a good start especially with Willian being goal shy and always disguising his shots as ‘crosses’.

    They said he’s slow and can’t tackle. Ironically we played better in midfield when Kante was out. Not calling for Kante to be dropped but highlighting how good Jorginho has been for this team this season.

    For me the ref wasn’t that bad. As for taking off a FB, it was a no brainer and long overdue: but he took off the wrong FB.

    It’s funny. I’ve always felt that Pickford’s passing game is actually one of the best for goalies in this league but perhaps is overlooked because he’s on a poor team and partly because he’s English/British. Had he been from Spain or Brazil, it’ll have been more hyped.

    Ironically we were sold on the lie that Kepa is great with the ball on his feet. It’s crazy. His kicking game is actually the worst part of his game.

    100% Kepa.

    So stupid.

    Lol. Thanks Kepa. You have done well. 3-1

    Lampard looks lost on the bench today. He’s normally brave with his subs but not today.

    We need a natural left back on this game. Bring on Emerson

    Why is Christensen getting beat on every header?

    The following were very poor in the first half: 1. Willian: why is this guy afraid to simply shoot the ball? Bring in CHO immediately. 2. Azpilcueta: so terrible on the ball at this point in his career and it’s killing every move down the left wing. Also, their goal came from his side so were was the defensive edge over Emerson? Bring on Emerson. 3. Zouma: this is his worst performance this season. So uncomfortable on the ball it’s unreal.

    Phew! Thanks for the 3 points.

    It also helps that they're playing less games (No CL football), don't have any injury crisis and don't have to overly rely on academy players unlike Frank who's squad is thin and mostly inexperienced meaning greater risk of inconsistent performances and lesser opportunities to rotate players during this congested fixture period. He tried to freshen up the lineup with Giroud and Pedro which didn't work as hoped but he can only work with the players at his disposal.

    Well now, James has learnt the hard way that Creswell’s right is used for more than walking. Our defenders should not be allowing their man to cut the ball back into your own box. That is crazy defending. It doesn’t matter what foot the attacker is cutting onto. Pros are generally trained to shoot once the ‘lane’ opens up inside the box regardless of what foot it lands on. In this case we are talking about Creswell who won’t make any Ballon D’or lists but is otherwise a very good all round left back. That said, James somewhat panicked (showed his inexperience) on the play. He was initially outnumbered but only momentarily because he soon got help. All he had to do was compose himself on the play and force him down the line. In the event Creswell tried to switch feet to his right leg, James would’ve been better placed to nick the ball from him. But James panicked and over committed to Creswell’s left leg which opened up the dummy play and an easy angle to pick the corner. It was a mental mistake and we will learn from it. He’s a highly talented FB (James) so it’s nothing to be concerned about. But I felt that error played in his head the rest of the game (seemingly nervous on multiple simple throw in’s).
