The games are going to come thick and fast now. We now have two more LC games in Jan, plus the FA cup proper starts, plus we are in Europa league, plus we are fighting for top 4. This will be interesting.

Got to be in it to win it 🙄

Just in passing NB, how does Mrs NB feel about Jose being sacked?

Going to be interesting to see if Sarri expands his PL rotation during this. No way can we carry on playing the same 14 players.

But Conte could.

The difference of course is that if you have too few players, it is very probable that some are playing when not fully fit, and making their injuries worse.  Whereas when you have too many players but stick to the same ones, at least we can be confident that the ones appearing are all still fully fit.

Kepa, Azpi, Luiz, Rudiger, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, RLC, Pedro, Willian, Hazard

Only doubts are RLC versus Barkely or Kovacic and whether one of the front 3 is a CF. The rest is a shoe in based on last night.

Means only 4 outfield players who started last night are required to start again.

I think a sense of inevitability.  Tbh I think she misses the cheeky Jose with glint in his eye and always a cutting witty comment on the tip of his tongue. This version was match weary, player weary, hotel weary and dare I say life weary. It's a shame because managers who are real characters make the PL great and the best league in the world. I even miss Wenger and I certainly miss Fergie. I also think we will miss Mourinho. 

Edit: I'm finding Sarri's personality a bit dull if I'm honest. Contes first season with crowd surfing was amazing. Funny how circumstances  can change a person so dramatically.

With games coming thick and fast we have to start rotating a bit more in the league, but it's always such a tricky balance to get right and will be harder with this team as we've only had so few play in the league up to now. I think we'll see:

Kepa

Azpi Rudiger Luiz Alonso

Kante Jorginho Kovacic

Pedro Hazard RLC

Subs: Caballero, Christensen, Zappa, Barkley, Fabregas, Willian, Giroud

 

Come on Chels!
