Also consider replacing Tammy with Pulisic by the 60 min mark. Werner can move to CF. 

Yep this is what I'd go for. We don't need to do anything drastic and think this change would get us over the line.

I think a lot of people will be disappointed when  Werner moves to the centre, because he just won’t get the time & space in games like this.  And he’s not as good as Tammy or Giroud at holding the ball up. 

Palace with their monster centre backs defending their own penalty area is a different prospect to a team like Liverpool who defend on the halfway line. 

Pulisic needs to be introduced though, and potentially Mount for Jorginho in 20 mins if we still need a goal

Because the opposition are sitting deep in numbers. Hardly any space for him to utilise his pace. He had one decent chance on the break and hit a tame shot at the keeper.

Which is always seemingly the theme at Stamford Bridge.. which is why I wonder why we buy strikers like Werner.. sometimes I wonder if we are better off with a RVN type striker.

Agree with Jo Cole, we need players who can run with the ball, run at their defence. Passing and passing is not effective in breaking up an organised defence. The few occasions we've looked threatening have come with players running at Palace with the ball.

Surprised at all the negativity on here already.  We looked well balanced and well in control.  Some really good performances so far.  

 

Even with injuries, wouldn’t you expect this team Lampard put out to be doing a little better?

 Cannot wait for the second half. 

Let hope I can stay awake, and people ask why there is a bit of clogg towards Lampard. 

250 of additional playing staff same old problems with teams who put 11 behind the ball

Eh? Surely the opposite is true. Controlling the game and struggling to create much actually feels quite refreshing because it's not something we've done a lot of over the past season and a bit. The issues under Lampard have been quite different. Leaking goals, scoring goals, having very little control or game management whatsoever.

Maybe is because please are pony and we do not look like scoring. 

This is a 3pts match.

He'll be very useful in games against teams that play high lines or more openly than Palace have today. Even against Liverpool he made several good runs but they just weren't picked out.

I have a feeling Ziyech coming back will be the making of Werner. He will be our most creative player by a country mile.

It's half time.  They don't give the points out until full time.
