  1. Chelsea vs Aston Villa

    Pep has already said that they will be sending the kids out to play Wycombe so we can't really afford to play too many regulars in this game, especially as we will have a day less recovery. Hopefully Villa will make plenty of changes too though seeing as they have Manure at the weekend. I can see Ross Barkley getting a game here.

    Romelu maybe we haven't told you this but don't bother trying to play Timo in.

    You have to feel for Martin Tyler. His entire weekend spoiled in 10 minutes.

    Don't think anyone saw that substitution coming but we did need a change of shape.

    Werner on for Havertz and give Mason a kick up the bum.

    Might be my imagination but since Jorginho won player of the year he seems to be more proactive in midfield and less likely to go missing.

    We seem to be a bit fixated with trying to get the ball to Lukaku.

    All of a sudden this season it's our numbers 8 and 10 that are found wanting. Who'd have thought.

    Always remember his joke about writing a book with George Best about their lives after football in the seventies. Could people please let him know where he was and what they were doing back then.

    Luke Shaw always looks such an untidy herbert.

    On paper we should be firm favourites. Us playing Tuesday night at home, Spuds playing Thursday evening in France. Lukaku should be licking his lips in anticipation of another north London defense to beat up on. Of course things rarely go as planned. Maybe this game is the one to try out a different formation, maybe 3-5-2 with Werner and Lukaku up top and Mount playing at the tip of midfield. Of course that would require Chilwell and James to be bombing on out wide. Just an idea TT.

    Yeah but all those Russian names look alike don't they? Have you never read War and Peace?

    Absolutely. The one thing that bothers me this season is the play of Mason Mount and whichever player plays on the other side of Lukaku. We were banging on last season about how many goals we were going to score playing the way we were but with a bona fide striker to turn in the chances. Well this season we now have the striker however the other attackers just aren't playing the same way. No one else seems to be providing any sort of goal threat. We won't be able to depend on Lukaku to score every single goal this season. As far as last night was concerned I'd also add the Reece James was disappointing for me. Where are the drives to the byline coupled with the killer crosses? Azpilicueta is still sending in the same deep crosses that Morata used to feed off and Alonso is still getting into the box so it doesn't look like a managerial decision to change. I think maybe a couple of the players need to miss out a few of games to get their heads together. Midfield needs a look at too. Without Kante it is all too easy for the opposition to swamp the middle of the pitch and stymie our players. Perhaps an alternative formation needs to be looked at for those times when teams come to stop us playing rather than play themselves. The media has been quick to laud us, possibly beyond what we have deserved so far this season, which sets us up to be roundly criticised if the Lukaku goals happen to dry up. What we need is a return to the attcking style we saw last year and at that point we will be able to be optimistic. At the moment, we are becoming a one trick pony, and everyone knows the way to combat such a team is to shoot the pony.
