  1. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    So the Arsenal game was a nice little rehearsal for Kepa to get his full cup run? Was that part of the deal? Give him a game as a warm up. Why not? Good for Leicester I say for not playing their reserve keeper in the FA Cup final. Without Schmeichel’s crucial saves at the end they wouldn’t have won the game. Smart from Rodgers to play his best keeper. Also smart from Tielemann’s who admitted they knew that Kepa had a weakness from long range shots in the top corner. It’s the small details in big games that sometimes matter. So what? As long as Kepa felt wanted.

    I think Tuchel was trying to ingratiate himself with the club hierarchy knowing that the club will want to move Kepa on and recoup some of the fee. There was no reason on footballing grounds to pick him ahead of Mendy in either game. Tuchel gambled with Kepa to show off to the Board how smart a manager he is, took his eye off his priorities, and it spectacularly backfired. Really disappointed in Tuchel over the last week.

    Only ourselves to blame really. We’re going to screw it up, aren’t we?

    Well that puts the pressure on us.

    WBA just had a goal disallowed by VAR. Looked perfectly good to me. I’m not usually one for conspiracies, but this is seriously suspicious.

    Thought he was more offside than ours. It’s ridiculous that the law is so inconsistent on such marginal decisions. Makes it farcical and random. Exactly what VAR was supposed to get rid of. If it’s too close to call then the benefit should go to the attacking team.

    I know it’s disappointing to lose a cup final but I’d still take a win in midweek over them if I only had to choose one.

    Two incidents involving Kepa in two games. Standing way outside his goal against Arsenal. And diving under another long range shot today. That’s all he was involved in. Nothing else. Both 1-0 losses. In both games the opposition created one chance. I really believe we’d win both games with Mendy starting. He’s been one of our biggest players this season. You don’t leave him out in crucial games. Kepa was dumped by Frank for a reason. One of the things Frank got right.

    I thought this when I saw the starting line up. I thought there was a mistake and we were a player short. Mount, Werner and Ziyech as front three didn’t exactly trouble them much. So many defensive players on the pitch. Azpi and Reece James? WTF. That was down to Tuchel. Even before you get to the stupid decision to start Kepa over Mendy.
  10. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    So many wrong calls by Tuchel today. Mendy should’ve started the last two games. Why is the team being sacrificed to give Kepa a run out? What the hell has he done to merit such a break? Ridiculous. Once again he dives under a long range shot. So predictable. I know Chilwell was shocking against Arsenal but surely you start him against a team he had something to prove against. It took us 85 mins to create anything worthwhile. Leaving out both Pulisic and Havertz was a big mistake. One had to start. Really poor from Tuchel. He’s done so well to get us to this position and is in serious danger of blowing it.

    You’ve got to laugh. Ref couldn’t wait to blow the whistle while we were on the attack.
  12. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    That was an extremely dodgy decision.
  13. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    That decision was made a bit quick.

    The difference having a keeper who makes saves when called upon and one who doesn’t.

    Just stop it with those rubbish shots, Rudiger.
