Most of what we have seen so far is passing the ball around the back and recycling it whilst relying on CHO for a moment of magic to open things up. Seems we are a long long way off attractive football let alone winning games. Obviously still have our best players to come back but the lack of intent or end product in the new revolutionary attacking philosophy is uninspiring.

The problem is that once again we're virtually reliant on Kante and Hazard to function. The issue we still haven't addressed is the players, around them doing enough to carry their own. We're a poorly assembled squad in terms of cohesiveness and balance to play in any particular way. This is what happens when managers are in and out, and the board largely dictate what players come and go. Playing conservative made sense because it gave us the best chance of a result. Playing more open and attacking football may look more proactive, but has the chance of seeing us more exposed and embarrassed. There's fine margins and Sarri is going to have to be more flexible than he has done in the past to help counter some of that. At least until the board remove their heads from their own ass and start backing their managers appropriately.

To be fair, Kante alone will make a huge difference to the entire team dynamic, freeing up Fabregas/Barkley and Jorginho to be more positive. 

Having Hazard available gives them a world class outlet. CHO will be the perfect impact sub this season. 

Let's see how we look with everyone available.
